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.

I got myself a Symfonisk speaker and run in to same problem with the binding as described earlier.

Is it possible to keep OH version 2.4, but just updated binding.

If possible, could someone tell me how I update this specific binding. Link to the binding?

I do have access to the local console on my OH. I can see follow version:

238 │ Active   │  80 │ 0.10.0.oh240           │ Eclipse SmartHome Sonos Binding
