I’m somewhat new to smartthings and have run into an issue. I would like to use my Harman Kardon Invoke Speaker as a chime or give me some type of alert when the front door opens. Is this possible at all? Any help is highly appreciated.

This Smart App and device type allows you to use any DLNA Media Renderer to receive Sonos-like sound and voice notifications from SmartThings.
You must to install the MediaRenderer_Connect to find any Generic Media Renderer (Network Speaker)
The MediaRender Player is the device type needed to control each Media Renderer.
If you dont have a Media Renderer like Smart TV or Network Speaker with DLNA you can test it with Foobar2000 program installing de upnp commponent. The commponent allows you to convert the player in a Media Renderer (Verify your firewall do not block the foobar2000 port )
I have tried some Media Renderers, but is better if you give me a feedback of the models that works for you.
Tip : Please, just install one time the MediaRenderer Connect from the phone, If you have…
To be honest, I don’t know how to do that. Is there a step by step guide in the forum?
john. I tried to play around with this but was not able to figure it out. Any chance you could upload a step by step?
