New to SONOS. How do I keep control over the music feed for a house party when others are on the same WIFI with the SONOS app and different playlists?

If it were me, I'd set up a "guest network" and only allow guests access to that. That way, they couldn't peruse everything, including the Sonos setup, on your regular network. This would also keep them from getting at all the contents of any computer HD you may have connected to your network.

Hello there, SteveClark. Thanks for posting and welcome to the Community. At the moment, there are no built-in party controls. However, that is something we've had a few requests for in the past. I am happy to forward this along to the team for visibility and consideration. Thanks again for the feedback!

In the meantime, personally, I've used a guest network for guests to use during parties unless I trust their music judgment. Only then can they wield the remote. 😛

This is the best option right now.
