Sonos-verified driver for RTI control platform released

RTI released a Sonos-verified driver for its control platform that enables control and automation of Sonos products with an RTI smart home or business system.

Verified by the Works with Sonos program, the driver enables integrators to build a music system tailored to their clients' needs and managed from the same interface from which they manage their lighting, shades, climate, security and other automations.

The new driver offers events-based automation within the driver that enables integrators to automate client systems based on feedback from the Sonos system. For example, a favourite playlist can trigger a particular lighting scene. Conversely, a ring of the doorbell can dip the volume or pause the audio.

The new integration starts with an auto-generated page in the RTI remote, touchpanel or mobile device for each Sonos player added to the system.

Control options include:

Simplified room grouping.
Volume control of individual and grouped Sonos players.
Full transport controls, including feedback metadata for cover art, artist/track/album details, and elapsed time.
Ability to route an externally connected AV source from one player to any other player.
Added home theatre control with supported Sonos players including Night Sound and Speech Enhancement.

The new driver is available to authorized RTI dealers at the RTI driver store and directly within the RTI Integration Designer 11 control application programming software.
