So I’m new here and set out to build a multi room system in a week or so…
It was done in a few hours, I expected some development or at least additional config would be required, but my HiFiBerry and SnapCast clients “just work”, thanks to the developers who put the time in
Now I’m bored and want to take it further (I still have a week or so to play ).
Basically, I’m looking for some feedback how to approach my personal project, since I haven’t seen anyone with such a setup.
I have a few 433MHz PIR sensors and a receiver for the Pi. The next step would be to have the SnapCast plugin running and transmitting “all the time”. The volume settings of the clients would based on movement.
Simply a default volume level is set for “background music” on all devices, and if the PIR transmits movement in an area, Volumio increases the volume to a max of X and if no movement is detected after N minutes, the volume is reduced back to the default “background music”.
If anyone has some suggestions how to approach this, it would be appreciated.
Since this is my first time using Volumio, I thought it would be best to get input first as opposed to jumping straight in
