Sonos sound levels in modes?


(Engelwood) #1

Set up a mode yesterday evening for “cooking”. We spend a decent amount of time in the kitchen and so this mode should come in handy.

I have it set to do make a few changes which I’ve listed below:

Turn on these lights or switches:

kitchen dimmer1
kitchen dimmer2
Kitchen on/off
Family Room Dimmer
Sonos1
Sonos2

Set Dimmers to this level:

80%

Everything works great except the Sonos. SmartThings see the Sonos sound level as a dimmer and cranks the volume all the way up to 80%.

I’m wondering if there is another way to accomplish this without startling the neighbors with my choice in music?

You’ll want to use the Sonos Mood Music SmartApp. That allows you to play a song or station when any number of things happens, including Mode changes.

Knew it was something simple! Thanks!
