    Motion sensors in each room to report to HS what the status of activity is.

    An amp to boost the signal from line-out to speaker-level. An Elk-800 is 2 to 16 Ohm stable, assuming you're really only interested in either background music or announcements.

    A relay at the PC end of your speaker runs to activate that speaker.

    Assuming you just want to run announcements through the speakers, you could use some Elk-73 Echo speakers... they run as little as $6 or so. Not so good for music.

    Have HS turn on that speaker "zone" when it sees motion, turn it back off when no motion.

    A really quick and dirty way...

    I did a little more advanced approach in my house, but not by much.

    whole house speakers??

    i just thought of something, i have a line-out jack on the back side of tower, it's the kind of jack like for headphones. What would it take, hardware wise and script wise to take advantage of this, and switch speakers to the rooms that are occupied?
Working...
