Depends on what you mean by ‘control’, but generally speaking, no, Sonos operates from a Wi-Fi connection.

The new Sonos era 300 or era 100 has Bluetooth

The new Sonos era 300 or era 100 has Bluetooth 

Are you asking if you can share the Bluetooth audio from the Era 100 or 300 to the rest of your Sonos speakers? If so, the answer is yes. Read more here:

But if you mean ‘control the Sonos system using the Sonos controller to change rooms, add streams, etc.’ then no, the Sonos controller requires an internet connection to work. As suggested, you can use Bluetooth to send a signal to a Sonos speaker that has a Bluetooth receiver in it, but you can not use the controller. 

Ok thanks
