An Audio Player Group can be used to combine multiple Audio Player blocks. This allows for a uniform music experience in open spaces.
All Audio Player blocks that are in the same group will always play the same source. However, they remain independent in terms of volume, so that a suitable volume can be selected for different areas of a building.
For each desired group, create an Audio Player Group and assign the desired Audio Players in the block settings.
In the following example, a group was created with the Audio Player blocks in the living room and kitchen, since there is no physical separation between the two areas:
|In contrast to the fixed player group in Loxone Config, dynamic groups of individual players can also be created, edited and removed by users of the user interface or App.|
