  • Play to specific link group

    Is there a way to use HomeSeer and the Sonos plugin to play music specific to a link group I define in Homeseer?

    E.g. if the whole house is all grouped in Sonos, but I want to double tap a light switch and have three zones start playing something different, is that possible? (scenario - I want to turn music on in my bathroom for a morning shower but not wake everyone else up).

    Don't know about using linkgroups for this, but here is an event that sets up a grouping then plays a Spotify favorite.

      Got it - yep that'll work I just thought link groups would be an easier way to manage.

      Actually, I don't think I need to unlink. I just need to run one link event and that will set everything. Then I can set the volume individually.

      Now I just need to figure out how to play a spotify or amazon music playlist from Homeseer...had a conversation about that six months ago but never reached resolution.

        Were you able to find any information about playing a playlist?

          you would make a linkgroup say "PlaySpotify". You would make the Living room as source player and Living Room, Master Bed & Bathroom as destinations. You would set the volumes in the linkgroup as 30,50,50

          Once you do that, you will notice that you now have devices that are named Link-PlaySpotify and Unlink-PlaySpotify.
          You can find them on the device management page if you look for the Sonos Master Device and click on "control".

          You would now simplify your event and just have a few actions
          - Set device Link-PlaySpotify
          - Play Favorite ....
          - Set shuffle ...

            Only way that works is when you save them as a Favorite (or save queue as ...) and now use the favorite (after you recreated the MusicDB) in your events/actions.
