The ise smart connect KNX Sonos
Crystal clear hi-fi sound and nearly unlimited sound scenarios: the Sonos sound system enhances digital music with a varied landscape of wireless speakers and audio systems. This sound wonder only has one drawback: until now, it had to be controlled via a special app, especially during zone use; a handicap for all KNX users!
But now, the ise smart connect KNX Sonos connects this sound family to the world of KNX and makes it even easier to handle. With dynamic zone formation, up to five Sonos master devices can be connected via IP and each can be linked with up to five Slave units. Hereby, either each master device is assigned its own music program or one master device controls the complete device set-up.
- control to play playlists
- title, artist, and album in running text on KNX text objects.
- total volume control of master, slave, and the complete group
- dynamic zone building for up to five zones with one master each and up to five slave devices via KNX objects
- playing music from the SD card in ise smart connect KNX Sonos
- for the latest version of ETS4 or ETS5
- NEW: support for analog and optical inputs of the Sonos Playbar and Sonos Connect / Connect:Amp
- NEW: start title in playlists can jump directly
- NEW: preselection of volume and unmute at source selection
- NEW: play announcements (temporarily interrupting of the current playback)
- Good bye Sonos-App, hello KNX: Finally, Sonos sound systems can now be controlled independently from the Sonos-App using only KNX functions.
- Do not miss the chime: If someone rings at the door, music playback is paused and a pre-recorded door signal is played back in one or all groups.
- Never roar “Lunch ready” any more: At your fingertip, the scenario “Call for lunch“ is started. While the announcement plays, the playback of music is paused in all groups.
- Music against burglars: Lights and blinds are known in the presence simulation. Now also the world of audio can be integrated. Just let play some music from time to time in the living room or the kitchen
- Your favorite music in the bathroom: In the future, entering the bathroom does not only turn on the light automatically, but also your music starts playing.
