I am working out how to get some music into my bathroom to help drown out the roar for the exhaust fan.
I’d love to be able to do a touch screen or one of those magic mirrors. You could see the weather/news play music or stream Breakfast TV etc.
As we plan to remodel in a couple of years I’m not wanting to spend a lot right now.
My idea is to drive a couple of speakers from the Pi or via an amp.
I don’t want to have to take a smart phone into the bathroom though fear of dropping or getting it wet. I’d probably set up the playlist via a smartphone before going into the bathroom. But I’d like to be able to control volume, pause and skip tracks via some sort of water resistant/proof remote control.
I planned on placing the Pi in a central location so am thinking that a wifi or blue tooth remote would be best. Its about a 10m cable run to the bathroom so an IR extender may work as well?
As anyone done an install like this? Can any one suggest a type of remote control?
Love to hear your ideas or suggestions.
