For Christmas last year I was given a Sonos:3. A delicious piece of tech that allows wireless streaming of audio, from it’s selected sources and app. Being that it is from it’s selected sources, limits what it can play. I have Mac, iPhone and iPads galore in my house, along with windows devices. The biggest limitation that i was unaware of, was that the Sonos cannot do airplay.
So after playing music through tunein radio and some other fairly limited sources, i did some interesearch and discovered AirSonos. A nifty implementation that allows you to select the Sonos speaker as an airplay receiver.
The instructions were simple enough,
- Install node.js on a computer (i chose an always on, always at home mac server)
- Install the airsonos app from github
- Run the app
Next, I’ll be looking at how I can make it do things with IFTTT.
