The module is two-way so actions made from the Sonos Desktop Controller and Sonos App are reflected in Total Control and vice versa. Favorites can be added directly from the Total Control interfaces; these will be reflected in the Sonos App and Sonos Desktop Controller. This gives your customer complete flexibility. They can use their Sonos iPhone App to select a track and then their TKP-7000 to browse for a particular Pandora channel. It is worth remembering that iPhone Apps aren’t always a particularly fast or convenient way to change volume or mute music; the Total Control touchpanels and dedicated remotes are always connected.
The module is designed to work with all current and past Sonos Zoneplayers and the Playbar.
The Sonos devices can be used as standalone locally amplified devices, as central sources connected to a multiroom amplifier or a mixture of both. The Sonos Connect makes a great source for a DMS-1200 or single zone DMS-100.
This makes it a very flexible system to install. During a new build you can install a Sonos Connect with a centrally located DMS to provide music services to wired zones. If your customer later decides that they want to add an music to an additional room which hasn’t been wired, you can add in a Play:5 or use a Connect:Amp with local speakers.
You can also add Total Control to an existing Sonos system. The customer may already have a number of Play:3 and Play:5 devices installed. Rather than having to pull any new wires you can incorporate them into the Total Control solution.
