Intercept AirplaySpeak error

In some cases my speaker goes awry and AirplaySpeak throws an error message in the log. Is it based on an error code of the speak command? How could I intercept that error and based on that for example send a text message to alert me to reboot my speaker (that usually solves the issue).

I use the below script to look for a 'failed connection' message in the log. Feel free to copy and adapt. I'm using a Global variable to keep track of the last time i searched the log, and trigger the script like every 10 minutes from an event. If it finds a failed connection log entry, it calls another event.

Are there other errors that are issues in the log that i could look for?
Btw, it would be easier if log entry were marked as error instead of info...

Sub Main(parm as object)

Dim Logs() As HomeSeerAPI.LogEntry
Dim lngIndex as Long
Dim LocDate as Date
Dim LocTargetLogType as string = "AirplaySpeak"
Dim LocTargetText as string = "INFO Connection to iW3 ( failed"
Dim LocLogText50 as string
Dim LastRan As Date = #8/14/2016 5:02:00 PM#
Dim NewLastRan As Date
Dim FoundDrop As Boolean = False

NewLastRan = Now
LastRan = hs.GetVar("lastlogscan")
Logs = hs.GetLog_Date(LastRan, NewLastRan)

If Logs IsNot Nothing Then

For lngIndex = LBound(Logs) to UBound(Logs)
If String.Equals(LocTargetLogtype, Logs(lngIndex).LogType) Then
LocLogText50 = Logs(lngIndex).LogText.SubString(0,50)
If String.Equals(LocTargetText, LocLogText50)

LocDate = Logs(lngIndex).LogTime
hs.WriteLog("Info", "Found AirplaySpeak drop at " & LocDate.ToString("G"))
FoundDrop = True
hs.TriggerEvent("AirplaySpeak Speaker Dropped")
' hs.WriteLog("Info", LocTargetText & "-" & LocLogText50)
End If
' hs.WriteLog("Info", LocString & "-" & Logs(lngIndex).LogType)
End If

Next lngIndex

End If

If FoundDrop = False
hs.WriteLog("Info", "No AirplaySpeak drops found")
End If
End Sub
