Custom Notification Sound For Home Assistant Update

Hey folks,

I have created an automation, which will send me a push notification every time there is a new Home Assistant update. I hope you also like my custom notification sound :grinning:

can you provide the audio clip please? I’ve searched for a few days and I found a lot of others but yours seems to be the clearest.

I had to do a lot more nonsense to get this to work because the SONOS problem with playing local files but I was able to cook up a workaround that let me do this in the MOST annoying way possible:

I haven’t time blocked it yet (because I want to catch the first ‘real’ push) but I’ll probably time block it after the first successful push. Hopefully my DND’s will catch this if the first time happens in the middle of the night. Thanks for the fun idea and audio file!
