Sonos


The sonos platform allows you to control your Sonos HiFi wireless speakers and audio components from Home Assistant. By default it supports auto-discovery provided by Home Assistant, and you don’t need to add anything to your configuration.yaml. Alternatively, there are some manual configuration options, listed as follows:

To add your Sonos components to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file. It will perform Sonos auto-discovery of your connected speakers.

# Example configuration.yaml entry using Sonos discovery
media_player:
  - platform: sonos

If you have multiple network devices, you can provide the IP address of the device that should be used for Sonos auto-discovery.

# Example configuration.yaml entry using Sonos discovery on a specific interface
media_player:
  - platform: sonos
    interface_addr: 192.0.2.1

You can also specify one or more hosts to connect to if they cannot be found with Sonos auto-discovery.

# Example configuration.yaml entry with manually specified addresses
media_player:
  - platform: sonos
    hosts: 192.0.2.25

or, for multiple hosts:

# Example configuration.yaml entry with manually specified addresses
media_player:
  - platform: sonos
    hosts:
      - 192.0.2.25
      - 192.0.2.26
      - 192.0.2.27
