ImperiHome now supports Sonos and Kodi

puzzle-2.8.0-small

Here we are ! The brand new upgrades of ImperiHome are out ! And this time, we have for the first time focused our attention on audio/video systems, resulting in 2 brand new integrations in the app : the Sonos wireless HiFi system, and the Kodi open-source home theater software (formerly known as XBMC).

On both of these systems, you’ll have :

  • basic playback control (play, pause, next/previous)
  • volume and mute control
  • feedback on currently playing media (title, artist, cover image)
  • favorites list, current playlist, and movies list (for Kodi), all featuring cover art thumbnail

We hope you’ll enjoy controlling your audio system from ImperiHome ! 🙂

 

data_backup-512 Ho, and, one last thing : we also have implemented one missing feature in the iOS version of the app : configuration exporting/importing. This feature allows (just as the Android version), to export your ImperiHome configuration for backup or to transfer it to another phone/device. The configuration files are compatible between Android and iOS (with a few exceptions for now, such as custom images), and can now even be password protected :). Here is how to do it.

 

See you soon for more improvements !
