I am trying to setup Openhab2 for my home-automation use-cases ( I understand that it’s work in progress, but I don’t mind tinkering)
The desired use-case: When I come home, I would like to start the playback of a certain URI on a Sonos Speaker (or other Speaker)
I started off from demo.items & rules and for now I have:
- a “When I come home” switch defined *.items file.
- A rule based on that switch that:
---- Modifies a couple of lights defined in *.items files - > that works !
---- Should send a command to the Sonos speaker
That should be the theory but the confusing part is
- The switch is defined in *.items ( the more static part )
- Whereas the Sonos is Dynamically added ( with specific name, …)
So how to send a command from a rule to a dynamically added thing ?
Do I need to define something in *.items before being able to access it via the rules ?
Any links or help helping me forward would be helpful
Any questions, just let me know.
