Heos

From HSYCO
Jump to: navigation, search

Heos by Denon comprises a set of HiFi audio systems integrated with HSYCO via WiFi or Ethernet connection. A single HEOS I/O Server controls all the devices connected to the local network.

The driver has been tested on firmware version 1.289.95 of the HEOS devices.

Communication

Just make sure the Heos devices are connected to the same local network as HSYCO server is.

HSYCO Configuration

Add a HEOS I/O Server in the I/O Servers section of the Settings and set its parameters:

High Availability

  • User: username for the HEOS account (optional)
  • Password: password for the HEOS account (if User is provided)
  • Shutdown when inactive: defaults to false.

Options

ID Default Values Description
startupevents false true generate IO events also during the driver’s start-up phase
false start generating events only after HSYCO is aligned with the current status of the system

Datapoints

In the following table, replace <name> with the name assigned to each player. Names are transformed to lowercase and spaces are replaced by '-'. For instance, if the name assigned to a player is "Example Name", the <name> part of the corresponding datapoints will be "example-name". The same applies to <group_name> placeholders.
