Is this possible? (Auto play Music when touchdown)

Hi All,

I got this idea from a post on Reddit so I am wondering if the following is possible an if so, with what equipment.

* Basically, when my team scores a touchdown, I would like my LIFX lights to flash Maize and Blue (I have two strips) and then have the fight song play on my speakers (or even echo devices if possible).  I have my speakers connected to a Denon receiver.  I was thinking the following to start

. When touch down, i press a button and it invokes a scene that starts the LIFX lights (using Polyglot) and then do a network resource command to tell my Denon to play an mp3 file

- If i get that working, maybe i get a little more fancy and have some sort of script that watches a twitter feed that when it see's certain words, it will they go through the routine above

Is this possible with just a ISY?  Would I need anything else? Homeseer? Home Assistant?  Thanks!

Don’t know about the Denon. If it stores files locally, and that is exposed to the network commands, then it should be possible.

I did something similar, but I used my computer to handle the music portion. I wrote a script that switched the receiver input to the media player, then streamed a playlist from my computer based on a network resource call.

I did something similar with previous versions of Polyglot and the LiFX nodeserver. It worked, though a bit erratically with a two second wait between color switches. Both Polyglot and the LiFX nodeserver have improved significantly since then, so you might have some succcess with the lighting.

A few years ago I was in a local bar and a friend/neighbour of mine bought an offered cup that did this.
Seems it was linked to WiFi and when the user set team scored in some sports game the cup would play music and flash lights inside the cup bottom.

Thinking about this a bit more, you may want to consider wiring up a separate speaker just for this. Presumably you’ll be using your receiver to watch the game. Having it automatically switch to a different input while the replays are being shown might not be ideal. It would also cut down on latency, since you won’t have to switch inputs, pause, play sound, etc.

Unless the receiver can automatically overlay an audio track over an already-playing audio stream?

Hmm, yeah looks like i have to make some decisions.  I was hoping I could tap into my Amazon Echo's to play the music, but I am reading up that there's no way to do that unless you invoke the Echo with the 'Alexa' command, so that sucks.  I might buy a couple Google Mini's cause i heard those can play music without a wake up word.  I'm hesitant to change inputs on my receiver as i believe that will just add to more lag.
