Tinkering with Sonos at Music Hack Day in Sydney

Posted on July 10th, 2012 by Sonos Staff in Events, Music On Sonos, Products

At Music Hack Day Sydney this past April, we made our API available to all independent developers at the event. The winner created a web app that allows users to control their Sonos players from a website with added enhancements such as social networking, album art and details about the artist. Get a closer look in this video.

    What I find funny is that the largest distribution channel for Sonos, custom integrators, are still waiting for drivers etc. that we can integrate into our multizone Sonos systems.  We would love to be able to turn over an all in one application that can control Sonos AND lights, home theater, shades etc.  Why not allow this sort of controlling to be open to the people who are helping you to make money?

    Would love to see the API opened up for all. I want to make a Windows 8 app that controls my Sonos and other home automation.

    Sonos API should have always been public…it makes the system more attractive to people who enjoy “tinkering”

    Thank you Rahim. I’ve been looking for an API for a while now.
