Snapclient & Mopidy

I have been trying out Snap multi room service and been really impressed with how easy it was to set up and run. I’m using Snap Client on a Raspberry Pi Zero and Snap server on a Pi B+.
The only problem is playing something different in one room without to much fussing. As I run LIRC and can control the Pi0 with a remote control I have for now put the following in the LIRC config file

prog = irexec
button = KEY_0
config = sudo systemctl stop snapclient
config = mpc stop;sudo systemctl restart mopidy;sudo systemctl start snapclient

It works well, but I’m sure there should be a better way of doing it. Any other ideas would be appreciated.
