How can I make my Ubi play music when I'm going to poop?!

Serious question


put a motion sensor in the bowl, so that when an object passes thhe sensor, SmartThings or UBI will act on it.
I recommend of course, waterproofing the sensor.


Thank you for that reply ;)
Hmm, well I took another route and put a sensor on the door, so when someone closes it I want the Ubi to play music. But I can not find anything but Voice announcement there. Am I stupid?

Well, UBI playing music would need a httpget for anything specific, else you could "eventually" setup an ifttt control (however those take minutes sometimes to re-act (you'd likely be pooped out).) Alternatively, if you have it connected at all to a computer or receiver, you could have that device switch on to play X when motion sensed.

I utilize eventGhost for a lot of PC to home automation commands. It's free, convenient and does not require home automation elements, you can control your computer's and mobile devices as well... e.g. sending a "play spotify or pandora, etc." command to your mobile (assuming you took it in there with you). ;)
