This project shows you how to build your own remote controller for the Sonos wireless home sound system based on Android Things.
Sonos is wireless home sound system which did get quite popular during the last years. It offers a seamless integration of Google Play Music.
Since the company has stopped selling their own hardware controllers several years ago (CR100, CR200), there are two ways left to control the Sonos system:
- Use the hardware buttons on the speaker for very basic tasks (Play, Pause, Volume Up, Volume Down)
- Use the Sonos App on your Tablet / Smartphone / PC
There is a certain demand in the Sonos community for a hardware remote control, which can do just a little bit more than the built-in buttons but is not as complex as the Sonos App on the Smartphone.
