Sonos App for two homes


  • Contributor I

Can I use the same Sonos app for two homes with two different WiFi configurations? I have our primary home with the Five and two Move speakers on the latest Sonos app. We have a small vacation home that would only need a Roam speaker. I would not bring the Roam into the primary home. It would cradle at the vacation home and be used in the second location only. I would still like to use the Sonos app, and only have access to the Roam when I’m in our vacation home. Is that possible?

Hi @TPI 

Welcome to the Sonos Community!

@UKMedia is correct - but this is only necessary if you want to use the same Voice Assistant in both locations. Otherwise, you can factory reset the Roam and set up a new system in the Sonos app in the second location, but using your existing Sonos account - you will then have two “households” on that one account.

See our Set up a new Sonos system in a new location help page for more details.

Thanks! For clarity, I don’t have the Roam yet. It would be unboxed in the new location. Sounds like I can do it straight away and create a second household under one account. I’ll read over the article   Thanks again!

Hi

You can use the same App but you would need to create two Sonos accounts, one for each house, as they are wi-fi/location specific.  The App will connect in each location without issue, as the set-up is stored within each device and not the App.

Edit:

You may need to factory reset the Roam and add it to the second account , if you have already added it to your main home account.
