Current Limitations

  • App support is only available on iOS.
  • A maximum of four Sonos Players can be added to the Insteon app.
  • Only one Sonos Player can be a member of a scene.
  • At this time, you are unable to edit Sonos Player functions from within a scene. If you wish to change a Sonos function after a scene has been created, delete the scene and re-create the scene with your desired changes.
  • At this time, Insteon app-learned presets do not work with all possible Sonos sources. The following sources have been tested and are known to function:

    • Apple Music Radio
    • Google Play Music Stations

  • To facilitate preset playback from an Insteon device, the Insteon app lets you learn source presets. Configuring these playlists is done from within the Insteon app when editing a Sonos Player settings.
    • You can learn up to ten Insteon app Sonos presets
    • These presets are shared among all configured Sonos Players
  • Insteon has tested Sonos support with the following Sonos Players:
