A pop-up will show up wanting to verify you have already set up your Sonos system on your computer. Once again, this post assumes you have already set your Sonos system up.

Here you are presented with two methods to connect the Sonos Controller app to your Sonos system. You can either press the mute and volume-up buttons (pictured left in the app) at the same time on your ZonePlayer, or the single button (pictured right in the app) on your ZoneBridge.

Once the correct button(s) are pressed, you should see alternating white and green lights start blinking on either the ZoneBridge or ZonePlayer.

Once you have pressed the button within the 2-minute window, you will see a screen that shows you what component of the system you used to successfully connect the Sonos Controller.

Tap on Next.

Now that your iPad is capable of interacting with your Sonos system, you can control basically every aspect of the Sonos system directly from the app. From controlling queues in multiple zones, grouping zones, to adding new components to the system, you are in complete control of your Sonos system, all from within this app.

Now it's time to turn up the music, activate Party Mode, and dance to your heart's content. Just remember to close the curtains so your neighbors can't watch.
