Using Sonos APP to view/control Logitech Media Server
Hello. I am a very happy user of Logitech Media Server and now have Control4. Unfortunately, there is no LMS api for Control4. Does anyone know of a way that the Sonos App can access my Logitech Media Servier? (I am not asking if LMS can control sonos end points -- it does via the UPNP plugins but I don’t have any Sonos end points.) Thanks much… darien
Use Sonos microphones to command KNX smart home
Hi guys, A year ago when I moved, I fulfilled myself a long-held dream and got a Sonos multiroom sound system that I am really happy with. Also, this flat has a smart home system that, using KNX, operates everything from heating and light to sun blinds. To control it I can use wall switches or a very simple app. Since I have Sonos microphones in every room, I asked a technician if it’s possible to somehow make use of those mics to control the KNX smart home via voice commands using my Sonos speakers. He was under the impression that the “RealKNX Air Server” would achieve this, however I was informed they are only able to control Sonos speakers for sound output, not the other way around as voice command input for the smart home system (which is ironic since Sonos bought RealKNX in 2019 and now feature their offline voice assistant Snips as “Sonos Voice Control”). This means that with a RealKNX Air server (in combination with their gateway config called “ProServ”) I would need additional
How to enable SONOS one gen2 with Doorbell sound in Fibaro Home Center 3?
Following situation:I have an Interkom (Fibaro) device which is connected to a Home Center 3 Hub. I am using Sonos as a sound speaker. Now, when I install the Sonos Plug-In in the HC3 web app, I can only start / pause / stop playing music on Sonos. Is there a way to trigger just a simple Door Bell (eg. MP3) in Sonos ? I have also enabled Alexa / Sonos Skills, but not quite clear where and how I could trigger some Door Bell Sounds in Sonos ?Can someone help ? Thanks Tom
Sonos esta a punto de desapareser
Yo compre sonos para escuchar musica solo eso, entienden, y si no estas suscrito a Sonos music no puedes escuchar música en Apple Music , Voy a hacer basura estos altavoces , y cuando apple tenga los suyos los compro , eso es lo que quieren, son una basura, no vuelvo a comprar en Sonos, por cierto invertí en sonos 10000 dólares y perdí 70 por cierto y ahora esto, menos mal que no seguir perdiendo, por que vendí las acciones , pero me quede con la mierda los altavoces.

Feature request: Custom Voice Assistant
As Smart Home enthusiast i want to control my home by voice without the cloud. There are solutions like rhasspy (https://rhasspy.readthedocs.io/en/latest/) for this. But there is no out of the box Hardware like Sonos Speakers which can be used for input. To not reinventing the wheel for every solution of this kind a streaming server as option for voice assistants would be very helpfull. So each third party service can hookup this stream and do its thing with the audio.
Cannot group Sonos system with Google Home devices
Sonos, After all this waiting. And after multiple articles. And after multiple phone calls to your service reps (including today), I’m now being told that you cannot group your Sonos system devices with your Google Home devices (after being told for months and more than a year that the aid be able to group them). Even the rep I spoke with today tried to help me and didn’t find out it wasn’t possible until he spoke to a system engineer. You can do it with Amazon devices, but STILL not with Google devices In all honesty, what is the point of adding Google assistant to Sonos if you can’t even use Sonos speakers with Google Speakers together in a group? It’s pretty useless for me to be in living room, have to get up and walk to my kitchen to say “hey google, play x in my Living Room” and then walk back.
Using a Sonos speaker to control CastleOS
I'm configuring my home network and want to add speakers to different rooms. I'm considering using CastleOS as my controller software because I currently have a Ring doorbell and Nest thermostat and am interested in the Sonos speaker options.I know I can control the Sonos speakers by talking to them, and I can control the speakers through CastleOS, but can I control CastleOS (or another controller software like Home Assistant) by talking to the speakers, or are the onboard mics only capable of controlling the speakers?I'm looking for alternatives to buying a few Kinects to add voice commands to my home's CastleOS setup, and these Sonos speakers appear to be ideal in giving me multi-room voice recognition while also filling the sound system role, but only if they also let me give CastleOS commands, such as turning light switches on/off or setting the temperature.Thank You In Advance,

Sonos & Philips Hue IntegrationTutorial
With the prospect of having parties once more now on the horizon perhaps you're looking for a way to make sure yours are going to be the talk of the town? If you have a Sonos system, a Sonos Port or Connect, a PC and the Philips Hue lighting system in your home, here’s one way of guaranteeing your friends and family will be talking about your parties for some time:This is a guide on how to use a Port/Connect and a PC/laptop to link your Sonos system and your Philips Hue system together so that you can have your Hue lights react to the music playing on Sonos.This method does require the Hue Bridge v2 device but does not require the Philips Hue HDMI Sync box.If you don’t have a Connect or Port, but do have a first-generation Play:5, you could use the headphone socket on it and a 3.5mm to 3.5mm lead. The volume control for the Play:5 would come into play, however.For now, instructions are for Microsoft Windows 10 and macOS but the troubleshooting/help steps in red are for Windows only. St
Airplay doesn't work
Hi, I have a problem with AirPlay. The system works correctly with the Sonos app but when I want to send something via airplay, the iPhone says it can not and the Mac to change the permissions to "Anyone on the same network". But I already have those permissions like that.What can be the solution?
Apple home Automation to start music when I got home, nice surprise
I have made a simple automation with Apple Home on iPhone to start music when I got home. I have an Apple TV to manage Apple Home. It has worked at first attempt and also I made an interesting discover.Basically the music is played from the Apple TV and airplayed to my Beam and One, but the Apple TV stays off (at least: the led light is off). also the TV has not been turned on.So it seems that the Apple TV is capable of airplaying music without turning on the TV, but only with an automation. would be nice to use this features also from Apple Music, this would be a very good alternative to Sonos App, because basically your smartphone is not streaming anything, just link with the Sonos app
Play feedback sound with minimal delay
I have a few home automations that start to play music on my Sonos devices.The problem is that between the start of the automation and Sonos starting to play to content (for sure when radio) there are a few seconds of delay.Start automation → communication to Sonos to start playing Radio A → few seconds → Sonos starts playingI would like, when the automation is triggered, give immediate feedback that the automation is triggered by for example sending a ping or a chime sound from the Sonos player. So the user knows that automation has successfully started. Start automation → communication to play (local) ping sound -> Sonos plays ping sound -> communication to Sonos to start playing Radio A → few seconds → Sonos starts playingIs this somehow possible via the API? Are there a few local Sonos sounds that can be used for this?
Running on old iOS
I’m running 2x Sonos devices from Mac and iPhone. Both have old operating systems. Everything was fine until the recent Sonos update. Now I can only run one device at a time from either iPhone or Mac, and am unable to tie the two together as a system. Any ideas how I can fix this without the expense of upgrading both Mac and iPhone.

Add Chromecast built-in Integration
I live in Italy and here Android users are much more that the Android users that are in the USA…Personally all my family have an Android device, like Google Pixels, and all the house have integration with Google Assistant and Google Home. We are a Google Family.We bought a Sonos Move for have a portable speaker with a gorgeous sound, and I can confirm that it have, but we hear the lack of the Google Chromecast built-in integration.In fact the Chromecast built-in feature is a great opportunity for Sonos, we think, because in this way Sonos Speakers can appear in Media controls of Google Home and so can be controlled by all the people that live in the house. Also Chromecast built-in have plenty of integration with some services that made things really easy.So, we decide that for now Sonos for us it can be only the Sonos Move or the Sonos Roam that have also the Bluetooth, because we need it for limiting the lack of the Chromecast built-in functionality. But we appreciate that in the futu
How can I override the request for airplay code from iPhone podcast app?
I’ve scoured the community for an answer to this and all i see is the recommendation to check my smart tv and disable passwords (none are enabled) or to factory reset which i prefer not to do. Is there someplace in the sonos app or on iPhone settings i can control this? I don’t even see Airplay on my settings list in my iPhone 12. Thanks!
Google home not playing requested song on sonos
I have a google nest hub set up with the default speaker as my Sonos move, and the default music provider ass Spotify. Everything has been working great, except for sometimes when I ask google to play a specific song title, it will repeat the correct song but then play a completely different song not he speaker. I have spotify premium account set up on both google and Sonos. General playlist requests work for example “Play country music” but specific songs don’t. Any fix?
Asking google home to play spotify on default speaker sonos
I have a sonos move and a google nest hub set up in the kitchen. Sonos move is set up to use sonos voice control so that I can verbally group it with the other sonos speakers in the house. I have a google nest hub that will play specific spotify songs I request, but it only plays on the google nest hub speaker. I would like to find a way to ask google to play a specific spotify song but have it play on the sonos move speaker. I set the sonos as the google homes default speaker but when i request a song it says “okay playing (this song) on the kitchen speaker. sorry spotify premium is not currently available” even though i have my spotify premium account set up and it works when the sonos is not the default speaker.Is there a way to play spotify music by asking the google nest hub, and then have it play on the sonos speaker?

2 amps with identical setup, 1 airplay works, 1 doesnt.
Hello! I have 5 Sonos that are AirPlay enabled, including 2 amps. for these two amps, they are setup identically, they are stacked on top of each other, both hard wired direct to the network. 1 amp (and all my other Airplay speakers) work. But 1 amp gives the same error on any device (“unable to connect to “the pool”) ive power cycled, restarted the network, checked for updates, Turned WiFi on and off on that amp, Tried a half dozen iOS devices, Nothing I do will make the Sonos work. for this broken amp, no other symptoms, all music services work from the Sonos ap, but not from airplay or apple HomeKit. it did work at one point when I installed the amps initially, but not anymore. any tips? Thanks !
