Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) has begun offering two-way drivers to integrate Denon’s Heos wireless multiroom-audio speakers into its home-control systems, and Denon is working with additional home-control companies to integrate Heos products into their systems.
With the launch of free two-way drivers developed by RTI and Denon, installers will be able to add a Heos wireless multiroom-audio system to RTI home-automation systems. From a single page of an RTI user interface, consumers will be able to browse online streaming and PC-stored music, as well as adjust audio settings on up to 16 Heos speakers.
Denon is also working with other home-control companies to enable their systems to control Heos speakers, but Denon didn’t say which companies or when the drivers would be available. “We have a publicly available control API and work directly with control manufacturers to get the best Heos experience up and running on their systems,” said Denon product manager Paul Belanger.
