I'm seeing a lot of home network verbiage on these boards and it has me nervous. At the Univ. facility I manage we once had SONOS in several of our spaces with the controls at our service desk running on a PC. Worked great for years then they decided to rely heavily on their apps for configuration along with WIFI. We had the speakers set up to connect to our network over ETHERNET with the WIFI broadcasting on the speakers turned off so as to not have issues with our network.
It's been quite some time since I've visited this project but have heard that Bluesound was more commercial in nature so thought I would give it a try. Hope I was not wrong. To test I purchased just one speaker for behind our service desk. If set up proves to be problematic I guess staff could connect via. Bluetooth so it won't be a total failure. The goal is to locate speakers in our weight room and cardio area and to be able to control them from our service area. Doesn't seem too difficult, it's the WIFI set-up that has me worried. Anyone else done a set-up in a commercial network as apposed to a home network?
