After reading the comments about MediaZones in the "A fresh new face for Premise" thread (http://cocoontech.co...ce-for-premise/) I have some questions about how people are using or not using MediaZones. I currently have a Nuvo Grand Concerto and almost always control it through the keypads on the walls. For Christmas I was given a Google Home, and now that I have it so I am able to control devices in premise from it, I am at a loss of how to get the Nuvo to react accordingly. Even simple things like power on/off and changing sources doesn't seem to be a possibility with the MediaZone object, so how are people accomplishing it? I can obviously turn it on and set the source in a script:
if this.DoorOpened then if datepart("h", now) >= 8 and datepart("h", now) <= 19 then sys.Home.Laundry.Laundry_Audio.AudioVideoOutput.PowerState = true set sys.Home.Laundry.Laundry_Audio.AudioVideoOutput.CurrentSource = devices.CustomDevices.ConcertoSystem.KG_Country end if else sys.Home.Laundry.Laundry_Audio.AudioVideoOutput.PowerState = false end if
but not sure how to do it otherwise....
Admittedly, I have not explored/used the Web interfaces in premise very much, either built-in or user developed (JQuery).

I doubt I'll ever finish it mostly because I don't use Premise's MediaZones.
So, What do you use instead of a mediazone? do you have a whole house audio system or any media rooms/areas in your house? how do you control them?

Of course, I use Media Zones a lot.
Can you give me a quick overview of how you use them?
Thanks in advance guys.
