Control and automation manufacturer specialist RTI has announced a new driver to integrate the RTI control platform with Sonos sound systems. Verified by the Works with Sonos program, the driver brings control and automation of Sonos products to an RTI smart home or smart business system.

Sonos sound system control from RTI control platform‘The new Sonos-verified driver has been one of the top requests from our dealer base,’ says RTI Product Director, Neal Ellsworth. ‘The resulting integration enables integrators to build a music system fully tailored to their clients’ needs and managed from the same intuitive interface from which they manage their lighting, shades, climate, security and other automations.’

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

‘This richness of integration elevates any system,’ Ellsworth says. ‘It’s easy and intuitive for users, and seamless for integrators as well.’

Control options include: simplified room grouping, level control of individual and grouped Sonos players, full transport controls (including feedback metadata for cover art, artist/track/album details and elapsed time), the ability to route an externally connected A/V source from one player to any other player, and home theatre control with supported Sonos players (including Night Sound and Speech Enhancement).

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