Configuring of rooms


In order to play music on a player device it has to be assigned to a room within the Raumfeld system. Only then the player device will be available in the Raumfeld App in the music zones dialog which enables you to select it for music playback.

In order to configure your rooms, visit Settings > Room Configuration. There, you can make the following room-related settings:

  • Adding of Rooms
  • Removal of Rooms
  • Grouping of Several Raumfeld Devices in a Room
  • Modifying of the Room Properties

Overview

In order to get a quick overview of your system's playback devices, they are labelled with the name of the room in which they are set up. If a number of Raumfeld playback devices are located in one room, you may group these under the same room name.

While in the Music Zones dialogue, only rooms are displayed which are equipped with an operational playback device, you will find a complete list of your configured rooms under Settings > Room Configuration. An icon indicates if the devices in the room are currently ready for use.

Adding of Rooms

Rooms are always associated with a playback device. You therefore need a device that isn't yet associated with a room in order to add a room.
If you would like to use another manufacturer’s device, connect it with your home network beforehand.
Open Settings > Room Configuration and select Add Room.

A dialogue opens.
a) If you would like to associate a device available in the network with the new room, tap on it in the list of available devices in the network.
b) If you would like to add an unconfigurated Raumfeld Speaker or Connector, select New Raumfeld Player. You will then be prompted to press the Setup button on the back of the device.

If you do not have a Raumfeld Expand and you wish to set up your device with the Raumfeld App on your smartphone, the speakers must be connected via a network cable to your network router for the duration of the setup. Determine in which room the device should be set up by tapping on the Enter name field.

Removal of Rooms

Open Settings > Room Configuration
Raumfeld Controller: Tap on the Remove button next to the room that you would like to remove.
Raumfeld App: Browse into the room you want to remove. Then, select the Remove Room button.
After you have confirmed the removal, the room will be removed. Provided that the playback device that was previously contained in it continues to be operational, you may associate it with a new room, or - in the case of a Raumfeld device - add it to an existing room.

Grouping of Several Raumfeld Devices in a Room

To optimally fill an especially large room with sound, Raumfeld offers the option to group several Raumfeld playback devices in a room.
Adding of a playback device to an existing room

Open Settings > Room Configuration and tap on the room which you would like to add a device to.
Tap on Add Player to this Room. The option is only available if the room contains a Raumfeld playback device.
If you do not have a Raumfeld Expand and you wish to set up your speakers with the Raumfeld App on your smartphone, the speakers must be connected via a network cable to your network router for the duration of the setup.

Press the Setup button on the back of the Raumfeld device that you would like to add to this room. Both LEDs on the front should be blinking now.
A message on the Controller will inform you that the Raumfeld device was added to the room.

Removal of a playback device from a room

Open Settings > Room Configuration and tap on the room from which you would like to remove a device.
Raumfeld Controller: Tap on the device’s Remove button. The option is only available if the room contains more than one playback device.
Raumfeld App: Browse into the player's properties page and select the Remove Player button.
After you have confirmed the removal, the device will be removed from the room. Provided that it continues to be operational, you may associate it with a new room or add it to another room.

Modifying of the Room Properties Room name

If you would like to shift one playback device from one room into another room, you may simply change the room names of the device.

Open Settings > Room Configuration and select the room in the overview. This will open its settings.
Tap on the field for the editing of the room name.
Enter a new room name and tap OK.
