We work a lot with professionals in the restaurant and hotel industry, the latter need to add sound to large spaces, sometimes with several rooms.
To meet their requirements, we decided to offer a multiroom Wi-Fi connection to our radios to be able to simultaneously broadcast the same music on each of the radios A. Absolutely and with global or independent volume management.
This solution is of course valid for your house or apartment.
A simple and efficient audio receiver
iEast offers with the Audiocast M5 an efficient and affordable solution allowing to stream easily and without limits in all rooms of your house. Supporting DLNA, AirPlay and UPnP protocols, it can therefore be associated with all compatible sources, such as a smartphone, a NAS (Synology, Qnap, ...) or a streaming service. The Audiocast M5 is also multiroom compatible and can interface with home automation systems for intelligent and optimized use.
In addition, to make the experience more fluid, the device embeds WPS technology for rapid association with your Wifi network. So you can enjoy your music in seconds, without any special configuration.
The Apple Store and Google Play Store are full of compatible apps. BubbleUPnP for example, allows you to listen to Qobuz, Deezer, Tidal and Spotify in streaming. Most smartphone native audio playback applications (Samsung, Sony, Meizu, etc.) can play audio files in the memory of the mobile device directly on the D-Stream WR-100D. Without any loss of course.
Streaming, home automation and iEast Play
The Audiocast M5 is compatible with many music streaming and webradio services. We will find for example Spotify, Deezer, Youtube, iTunes, Google Play Music or Tunein.
Do you want to make the most of your system? No problem, this one, like all iEast products, has an API that will allow it to be controlled by third-party applications or home automation controllers. This is for example the case of Fibaro which offers a plugin allowing you to control your iEast devices directly from the Fibaro controller.
iEast also offers an iEast Play application available on Android and iOS to control your brand products remotely, access your music and manage multiroom broadcasting.
An accessible multiroom solution
The multiroom feature allows you to synchronize your iEast devices with each other, to stream the same music to all of your iEast players. The broadcast is thus synchronized and you will not notice any delay when changing rooms. Via the iEast Play application it is possible to create multiroom groups acting on the distribution in each room.
