Sony's new Audio Control API enables smart home developers the ability to use compatible Sony devices.

Today Sony released their first ever Audio Control API, enabling developers to work with compatible Sony devices on their smart home automation apps.

The Audio Control API, which is a derivative of the Scalar API, opens up the possibility to control Sony’s latest home cinema equipment, allowing developers, or home automation enthusiasts to control parameters like power, volume and multizone.

How does the API work?

The Audio Control API is based on well-known protocols; HTTP and JSON. It can be used by mobile devices, web applications as well as desktop applications. The API uses SSDP for device discovery, and DLNA and UPnP for advanced connectivity. You can find out all the information on Developer World.

With the Audio Control API you can get started by controlling the following compatible Sony audio products:

  • STR-DN1080 7.2 channel home theater AV receiver

  • HT-CT800 2.1 - channel soundbar

  • SRS-ZR5 portable wireless Bluetooth/Wi-Fi speaker
