I have my Sonos speakers on a separate VLAN (different than where the Hubitat Hub is). The Sonos integration does not find my speaker because of that. I have my network setup so the Sonos Apps (controller app for both Android and iOS) does find and work with the Sonos speakers (players) by having the appropriate firewall rules to allow that traffic and allowing multicast broadcast messages between the separate VLANs. As a work around I have manually setup all my speakers by creating virtual devices and setting them to the integrated Sonos driver and putting in the appropriate HEX (converted from the IP of the speaker) as the device ID.
I do believe this is possible to do as the community KASA integration allows you to input the network segments you want to app to interrogate and then it finds the devices on those networks. It would be nice if the Sonos Integration would add this same feature.
Thanks. I have firewall rule to allow the Sonos speakers (on their VLAN) to talk to the Hubitat hub. The Hub is on the base network and is allowed to talk to the other VLANs. After much more than five minutes ... I still get this:
Thank you. I was not aware that was something you could do. However, it didn't change my situation. I put in my subnets, received a "allowed subnets list updated" response, rebooted the hub and the Sonos App still does not discover any speakers? After 20 minutes:
Multicast is allowed through my firewall. The Sonos apps (both Android and iOS) find and work with the speakers, so I do not believe I have a firewall issue. The Sonos Apps are on a different VLAN than the Sonos Speakers.
I have done this ... just attempting to get the integrated app itself to find the speakers, as it is intended to.
I have sonos on a different subnet using unifi networking equipment. I had to run a multi-cast relay in order to get the multicast messages to pass to the correct subnets (in addition to firewall config). I just run a docker container with the relay to bounce the messages.
I have the mdns repeater setup for all VLANS on my EdgeRouter-4. I have separate firewall rules to allow the required TCP and UDP ports that Sonos uses to pass too.
This allows the controller (The Sonos App) to be on a different subnet than the player (speakers). The Sonos app did not find the speakers until I added this multicast firewall rule .... so I am assuming it is working and multicast in not the issue with the Hubitat integration. Maybe that is a bad assumption?
