I am designing my system and I am going to be using Homeseer Pro through a designated computer to power most of my home accessories, but am also using their tablet app to instal a small tablet in 4 different rooms to control the system as well.
I would like to use the tablet to control the audio in a particular room or the whole home audio as well. I am thinking that I can use automatic speaker level switched to control the source that comes through the speakers but here is my issue.
Is there a way to go straight from the tablet to an amplifier to power in wall speakers without adding another A/V receiver. I want a nice clean look and do not want to have to get a big receiver to simply serve as a go between from the tablet music and the speakers. I know that a tablet does not have sufficient power to play the speakers to my liking.
The tablets have bluetooth. Can that be used?
Any assistance or advice would be greatly appreciated.
I can figre out about anything, but am not a computer programmer or electrical engineer. If you could say the specific devices that I need and how to run them or wire them up that would be immenslt beneficial. I have wired three home theaters into my home and am decent at computers but do not necessarily understand over the top tech language. Thank you.
