Hi @Truth

I’ve had a look and we have an article on adding Sonos to the Apple Home app, the steps are as follows:

  1. Open the Apple Home app on your iOS device.
  2. Tap the + in the top right corner.
  3. Tap Add Accessory.
  4. Tap I Don’t Have a Code or Cannot Scan.
  5. Tap the product you want to add.
  6. Pick the same room name used in the Sonos app.

I’d also recommend you reach out to Apple Support for more information, as they know a lot more about their home automatic software than we would. 

I hope this helps!

Thank you but i have tried this already?


Only the Sonos devices that are AirPlay-2 capable will show up in Apple HomeKit as accessories. Currently those devices are:

  • Sonos PlayBase 
  • Sonos Arc/Arc SL
  • Sonos Beam (gen1 or gen2)
  • Sonos Ray
  • Sonos One/One SL (gen1 or gen2) (when not used as rear HT surround**) 
  • Sonos 5 (gen2) **
  • Sonos Five**
  • Sonos Port
  • Sonos Amp (**when not used as rear HT surround) 
  • Sonos Move
  • Sonos Roam/Roam SL

I don't think I’ve missed any, but I’m fairly sure it does not include the older Play:1, or Playbar devices, as a couple of examples of devices shown in your online community profile.

If you have the newer Sonos One/One-SL, then it should add as a Home(Kit) accessory using the method described earlier in the thread. If not, then I would first try rebooting the router and the mobile device too and then try again.
