    Is there a speaker, or device that would allow me to set a speaker to start playing my ipod or iTunes? I'd like to be able to set a Scene for arriving home that turns on the lights and starts playing music. Any recommendations or ideas of a way to achieve this?

    Does Apple's new partnership with Sonos allow this? Not sure but I know they're now selling Sonos in the Apple Stores.

    Check out homebridge, it has plugins for a lot of different things, I know sonos is one of them.
    GitHub - nfarina/homebridge: HomeKit support for the impatient

    and anything you can do opening a web page, can be pretty easily automated.

    I've written a web front end for pandora and airfoil, so i say "turn on my jams" and pandora plays and all my airplay speakers kick on.
    I'm not so fond of the phrase, but that's the only thing i could find that wouldn't try to play something locally on my phone.
    and there's no way to change the music, it just starts playing the last list you were listing to.
