Restrict access to certain zones
There should be a way to restrict access to certain zones or allow control of certain zones from a specific controller. This is very important when you have children or have guests staying to stop inadvertent or deliberate changing of zone settings.

PEOPLE CHANGE THE NOW PLAYING SONG - and it is so annoying. Being able to distribute controllers at a party is great, as people can then add music of their choice to the playlist, however, it is extremely annoying when the 'Now Playing' song changes repeatedly. Wouldn't it be great if some form of administrative rights could be put in place to only allow certain controllers (the party host) change the now playing song, and the rest just be contributors to the playlist. Or perhaps even just the option to set a password to change the now playing song? I think this would greatly increase the attractiveness of using Sonos during house parties. 🙂 This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled How to improve a Sonos house party....
Or, you could merge your idea with this one, since it has more people liking this one and has been in place for longer... but you know, whichever.... Also, whilst the 'hiding' a zone sort of works, this means you can only have two states of a zone, hidden or not. So not so good if you want to give two children access to a SONOS in their own room and not to each others. Why would I want to do this? Prevents, them from 'fighting' over control for the others speaker (e.g. brother stopping his sisters music or turning it down) by being able to assign their controller only rights to a specific zone or zones. You are right in that just having a basic hide function would be a good start though...
Anything to be done? This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Password on different zones?.
Then, if they are using Android at least, they have complete and unrestricted access to your internet connection. I will have to do some testing to see if they have access to your network as well, I suspect that they do.
This interview speaks volumes--thank you for finding that. When a vendor allows themselves the power to literally dictate how a customer is to view his or her own equipment, it shows how much regard they will have for that same user's feedback.
