Tell us about yourself!
I did it in a very different way, and I think easier as well. I installed volumio on Rpi and then installed GPIO plugin, the enabled me to play, pause the music if I short GPIO 17 and +5v. I then ordered a normal motion sensor from market, that works on AC, attached a relay to the GPIO. That relay gets triggered by motion, which in turn shorts the GPIO 17 and +5v on Rpi. So as soon as motion is triggered the AC triggers the relay and music starts, the moment after like 2 mins when motion sensor does not detect the motion it triggers the relay again and music pauses. Then again as soon as I enter the room, motion sensor triggers the relay and music starts from exactly the position it was paused. ....simple yet very effective ... :)
STEP :: on windows computer I managed to see the media folder BUT its empty, where as I did put couplf of songs on the USB stick I connected to Rpi running prota. Also if I try to copy files to the media folder it says ACCESS DENIED. Instructions are incomplete. Please assist and update the tut.
VERY VERY poorly explained and written article ..... pity. And I am not a noob I have done my own Automation Project with Rpi and 4 channel relay and also with sonoff with tasmota firmware communicating with another Rpi running Home Assistant and MQTT server, and THIS myfriend is the worst tut I have even read. Why I landed up here was because I am planning to another project this time based on NodeMCU and 4 channel relay instead of using Rpi and your article did not help at all ....
