YOUVI Sonos Bridge
The Sonos bridge for the YOUVI Basic software package enables you to integrate a Sonos sound system into the visualisation. You can simply access and operate the multi-room control via a special sound system widget. With the music player integrated into the visualisation you can control the music in individual rooms and monitor the music selection throughout the entire house. The YOUVI logic module allows you to integrate your sound system into your home automation system.
Please note: The YOUVI Sonos bridge can only be used in combination with YOUVI Basic and PEAKnx hardware (Controlmicro, Controlmini, Controlpro, USB-Connector or Performance Server). You can find more information in the 'Installation' tab.
Extension for YOUVI Basic: The intelligent software solution for KNX smart home control
With YOUVI Basic you control the most common smart home functions such as lights, shading and heating easily and intuitively. Through the Sonos Bridge as well as other add-ons, the smart home functions can be expanded as needed.
Intuitive music player in the visualisation
The music player integrated into the visualisation can be operated intuitively. Users can start and pause/play songs, switch to the next song, adjust or mute the volume in each room, and switch to repeat or shuffle mode. The "Playlists" and "Favorites" tabs are used to select songs in the player that you have added to your favorites or playlists in the Sonos app.
The sound zones set up in Sonos are simply imported into the YOUVI visualisation. This allows each room in the house to have its own player that controls the music. The entire Sonos system can be pinned to the dashboard with a group widget. The group widget visualises all zones together.
Integrating your sound system into your home automation
With the logic module, you can integrate sound systems into routines. This makes it possible to address them via the KNX bus and to start playlists or favourites using your KNX switches. Adjusting the volume or simple pausing is also possible when a desired event occurs, for example a doorbell ring.
