Key Digital Announce Sonos Integration For Compass Control
Compass Control® Technology Now Compatible with Sonos Products. New Bi-directional driver gives integrators a plug-and-play solution.
Key Digital, distributed in the UK by The Multi-Room Company, has announced that Sonos products are now compatible with Compass Control, bringing users simple touch control of their distributed multi-room audio as part of their whole house control system.
Key Digital has developed a driver and a pre-configured GUI template for its Compass Control system, the first fully integrated major control system built from the ground up to use Apple's iOS devices as its backbone, to interface with Sonos products. Now Compass Control users can use any of their Sonos products with just a touch of a button. The addition of Sonos continues Key Digital’s mission of expanding the Compass Control driver library every day to bring the best quality and product selection to its users.
Sonos products allow customers to have access to their music library or connect to their music streaming services. Products compatible with the Compass Control system are: Play:1, Play:3, Play:5, Playbar, Sub, Connect:AMP, and Connect. Using the Compass Control app, Sonos users will have all the features they had with their Sonos controller they were previously using on their smartphone or tablet.
Ben Hillman, The Multi-Room Company’s Key Digital expert, says, “Sonos is one of the most popular consumer focused multi-room audio solutions available and many of our installer customers are called upon to install systems as part of larger whole house projects. Now with the addition of fully immersed control via Compass the Sonos system can truly be part of the installation and not a stand alone system that sits alongside the rest of the technology.” He concludes, “I feel sure that this will enhance the end-users’ experience and provide additional revenue generation opportunities for installers.”
