Project Description

SoCo (Sonos Controller) is a simple Python class that allows you to programmatically control Sonos speakers. It was originally created at Music Hack Day Sydney by Rahim Sonawalla and is now developed by a team of people at its GitHub repository

For more background on the project, please see Rahim’s blog post.

Visit the SoCo documentation for a more detailed overview of all the functionailty.

Installation

SoCo requires Python 2.7, or 3.3 or newer.

Use pip:

pip install soco

SoCo depends on the Requests HTTP library. If you use pip to install Soco, Requests will be installed automatically for you. If not, you can use:

pip install requests

Basic Usage

You can interact with a Sonos Zone Player through a SoCo object. If you know the IP address of a Zone Player, you can create a SoCo object directly:

>>> from soco import SoCo
>>> my_zone = SoCo('192.168.1.101')
>>> my_zone.player_name
Kitchen
>>> my_zone.status_light = True
>>> my_zone.volume = 6

But perhaps the easiest way is to use the module-level discover function. This will find all the Zone Players on your network, and return a python set containing them:

>>> import soco
>>> for zone in soco.discover():
...        print zone.player_name
Living Room
Kitchen

If you prefer a list to a set:

>>> zone_list = list(soco.discover())
>>> zone_list
[SoCo("192.168.1.101"), SoCo("192.168.1.102")]
>>> zone_list[0].mute = True

Of course, you can also play music!

#!/usr/bin/env python
from soco import SoCo

if __name__ == '__main__':
    sonos = SoCo('192.168.1.102') # Pass in the IP of your Sonos speaker
    # You could use the discover function instead, if you don't know the IP

    # Pass in a URI to a media file to have it streamed through the Sonos
    # speaker
    sonos.play_uri(
        'http://archive.org/download/TenD2005-07-16.flac16/TenD2005-07-16t10Wonderboy_64kb.mp3')

    track = sonos.get_current_track_info()

    print track['title']

    sonos.pause()

    # Play a stopped or paused track
    sonos.play()
