Bluetooth speaker support for Hassio


Ehlo, I searched a while a way to pair any bluetooth speaker/headset to my Hassio install and I got to the conclusion that it isn’t possible in an easy way yet.

I am wanting to make a component to turn any bluetooth speaker into a media player + button sensor.
I managed to get all necessary commands running using pybluez but I only tested on my laptop. Does anyone know if it is possible at all on Hassio ? If so is there an easy way to get a sensor to update with a locking command (command locks until it recieves a packet from the device).

Also if you are interested by such a developement tell me so, I’m curious about the possible usages. In my case I want to use a cheap 4$ speaker as a doorbell intercom.

Thanks in advance !
