Speaker Companion alternative needed. Please help

Hello there,

Until last week, I successfully used Speaker Companion smartapp to play audible alerts on a pair of Sonos speakers (Play:1 & One Gen 2). As this smartapp will no longer be supported, I started creating the routines directly in ST. But I am dealing with a HUGE issue; all the audible alerts are played at a loud volume that I can’t modify. Volume set to either 15%, 50%, 80%, or 100% won’t make any difference. The speakers’ physical volume buttons won’t work either.

Attached is a screenshot of one routine in ST

Help needed. Thanks in advance.

try removing the “Speaker” part under Then.

in “Play message on speaker” select the speakers inside it and test to check the speaker volume.

so it should look like:
Play message on speaker

You can also try SharpTools Rules Engine

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, it didn’t make any difference; still can’t manage the volume. I am afraid Sharptools is not an option for me.

If this is a change in an official feature, I would try reporting it to support.

There’s a “contact us” option in the SmartThings app, or if you are in the US, you can use the following options:
