Ikea SYMFONISK (i.e. Sonos) supported?

My wife is pressing me to buy one of this:


It’s a new Ikea lamp with an integrated Sonos speaker…

Anyone knows if it would work with OH ?

It certainly requires a fix to add the new device but it is easy to add if someone is able to provide the expected XML file describing the device.

I recently bought 2 of the symfonisk speaker (not the lamp, but the normal stands).
If you could introduce me in how to get that xml file i am happy of doing so.


Use this URL with the appropriate IP address: http://192.168.xx.xxx:1400/xml/device_description.xml

Here you go - thank you. This is the white speaker as a bookstand.

This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.

I will add this model next week.

That’s weird, service AVTransport is not listed !

Oh thank you!
I will be more inclined to be robbed by Ikea now :rofl:

I doubt the control by openHAB could work without the most important UPnP service… We will see.
I guess the device should already be discovered by the binding but as a Zone Player. Is it ?

sorry del. please

yes that is correct. It is auto discovered but still as a group player.
Thanks a lot for your integration

I created a PR to add the discovery of the SYMFONISK speaker.
But does it work when you use it with “Gruppen Player” thing type ? If not, it will not work better with the new SYMFONISK thing type.

I would be very much interested in knowing whether it works or not as I will buy a few of them if it does!

The change is now available in the 2.5 snapshots. Can we have a feedback if these devices are fully supported?

I have the Symfonisk wifi speaker (not the lamp) and using 2.5M3.
It is discovered as symfonisk decive (not group player).

I also have a Play:5.
For both, I have an item file with control, vaforit and currentalbumart items.

// Symfonisk
Player Kueche_control	   	"Controller"               {channel="sonos:SYMFONISK:RINCON_347E5C35CDE801400:control"}
String Kueche_favorit	      "Favorit" 			<text>           {channel="sonos:SYMFONISK:RINCON_347E5C35CDE801400:favorite"}
Image  Kueche_art              "Cover"          {channel="sonos:SYMFONISK:RINCON_347E5C35CDE801400:currentalbumart"}
// Play:5
Player Wohnzimmer_control	   	"Controller"               {channel="sonos:PLAY5:RINCON_000E5864200601400:control"}
String Wohnzimmer_favorit	      "Favorit" 			<text>           {channel="sonos:PLAY5:RINCON_000E5864200601400:favorite"}
Image  Wohnzimmer_art              "Cover"          {channel="sonos:PLAY5:RINCON_000E5864200601400:currentalbum"}

In my sitemap, I have the items with Default.

   Text label="Wohnzimmer"  icon="soundvolume"  {
			Default item=Wohnzimmer_control icon="switch" label="Player"
			Default item=Wohnzimmer_favorit label="Favoriten" icon="favorit"
			Default item=Wohnzimmer_art
		Text label="Küche"  icon="soundvolume" {
			Default item=Kueche_control icon="switch" label="Player"
			Default item=Kueche_favorit label="Favoriten" icon="favorit"
			Default item=Kueche_art

The strange thing is, that when I change the favorit on the Play:5, it is also changed on the Symfonisk. But for example the cover art is only changed on Symfonisk, not on the Play:5
I have a couple of other boxes (Play:1), same configuration there, and everything is working as expected.

Here what I see in the log file:

Wohnzimmer_favorit (Play:5) get an event. Favorit and title are changed.
But for some reason, Kueche_Titel (Symfonisk) is also changed. And szStop (a Play:3 box) is called. The cover art of the Symphonisk (Kueche_art) is changed, but never the one of the Play:5.

All players are not grouped and no stereo configurations.

Any idea what’s going on?

It looks like the binding considers there is a group with your 3 devices. It does not explain why the image is updated only for one device.
Can you restart the binding while you are sure no group is set in the Sonos App ?
Maybe something has changed with the zone group topology with the introduction of Symfonisk devices, but that would be a surprise.
If the problem is still present, can you enalbe the DEBUG logs (log:set DEBUG org.openhab.binding.sonos) and see if you find something when redoing the same scenario ?
Finally, this could require the adding of a new log in the binding so that I can see what is the zone group typology returned by the Play:5 device.
