    With this project, you will be able to automate a welcoming music for either your smart home or your smart office. As long as someone is around, the music will keep playing your favorite playlist at home or a welcome music to greet your customers or business partners while they wait in the lobby of your office.


    • Start music once detecting any motion around
    • Keep playing as long as there is someone
    • Control your speaker via a TelegramBot
    • Create a smooth atmosphere in the room with an audio automation

    This project requires no special skills, very little equipment and can be done in less than an hour. It’s perfect for anyone who begins in home automation or an aficionado looking for new ideas and a powerful smart home OS.
