Audio Interupter
« on: January 30, 2015, 05:14:44 pm »
Greetings.  I recently found a vera user who posted a great article on IVONA Text to Speak using the Vera Alerts plug in.  Works great.

Over the holidays, I hard wired my house for sound.  Multi Zone ELAM amp, and an unused ONKYO receiver live in the attic, where all wires terminate.

I envision an audio interrupter of some sort, that can take the output from the IVONA device, or perhaps another tts source, lowers the music if playing , plays the announcement, and then resumes the music, if playing.

My devices are all airplay, I use Amazon, or pandora, with AIRFOIL.  I have multiple airport express in the attic, and the RCA outputs feed the amps, feeding the speakers.

After exhaustive searching for a non automobile audio interrupter, I just noticed Homeseer has a TTS to Airplay plugin.  Does anyone know if that plugin lowers the volume, know of any for vera plugin,  or have ideas on how I can merge these signals from my android device and Airplay.

Thanks
