DIY Multi Room Sound System

home assistant multi room audio

Use any speakers to create a DIY multi room sound system. Each speaker (receiver) in this home stereo system is perfectly synchronized with the others, and can wirelessly play music from anywhere.

Building a whole-house speaker system begins with creating multi-room speakers, and then adding in the ability to stream from Spotify, Airplay, and more. Each speaker terminal is capable of playing songs from another room — controlled from a smartphone, server, or kiosk.

This approach also includes advanced features, like a “loudspeaker” for broadcasting notifications to multi-room receivers. Notifications can include anything from a doorbell sound to intruder alerts. For example, our security cameras are smart enough to detect cars and people — and then tell us before someone arrives.
