Play a sound or mp3

Benjamin M shared this idea 6 years ago
Under Consideration

It would be great to play own sound files.

Maybe via Spotify Connect or dnla-streaming or something else like a z-wave mediaplayer.

Or an andoid app running on a tablet... via http?


Any Idea?


So i would use it for announcements ... "please close the window" or "better check the smoke .... may be your house is burning"

Another idea: The Zipato-App could be used as a player ...

Zipatile should be capable to play mp3 files directly

It's already possible - see this thread https://community.zipato.com/topic/controlling-sonos


I use mp3 files played over Sonos with my Zipato alarm - to say things like "Please turn the alarm off" etc.

I would like to know if you can play a mp3 or wav from a google drive. I have tried but no luck.

I really can not see why Zipato can not implement a word puzzle. This would be great for the Zipatile to speak to the person who disables the alarm. I can do this via tasker with a tablet easy enough, but it is another work around that should be a standard feature.

I do it without issues with dropbox, I haven't tried with google drive but I will.

For having voice feedback, I send an http request to a raspberry equipped with a loudspeaker : http://gladysproject.com/fr/article/faire-parler-le-raspberry (tutorial is in French)

Thank you for this hint.

I have tried it and it works pretty good. I also added a camera now.


Only the loudness of my loudspeaker is to low.

Do you use an amplifier or usb loudspeaker or an usb soundcard for more power?
