Hey folks, I’m trying to build an automation for my kids at bedtime, trying to stay in the HomeKit ecosystem if possible.
Goal: adjust lights for nighttime (main lights off, nightlight strip on). Start a bedtime podcast.
The lights are easy, but I can’t figure out how to get a podcast to play. I can have shortcuts play a podcast, but I can’t figure out how to have it play on the HomePod. I suppose I could use Shortcutify to trigger Spotify to a speaker as an alternative, but I don’t know if I can trigger that with a home automation or just a personal automation.
How do you all do things like this?
