Announcing Location information
« on: February 23, 2013, 02:48:24 am »
Hi @hek

I noticed you said this..

Announcements... like .....
Informing family when the GPS location of my cellphone passes a certain location on my way back from work.
...

Sounds good, how do you do that?

Also if you have any good scripts for using the Sonos TTS/Say command, and they're reasonably generic,  it would be great if you could share them on the Creating Dynamic Messages post (http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,12408.0.html)

Sorry for a late answer (been on a 3 week vacation in Thailand).

By using the two android-apps Llama and HomeAuthomation.

Llama can start/trigger programs based on location without using GPS(which sucks battery).
HomeAuthomation app which can expose vera scenes as shortcuts with can be triggered from Llama.
