Home Audio App
Use the all-new "HTD Home Audio" app for total control of your HTD Whole-House Audio system.
Built from the ground up for better security and reliability, the HTD Home Audio app offers the best way to control an individual zone, group of zones, or the entire home from all of your smart phones and tablets.
It is compatible with all versions of our Lync 6, Lync 12, MC-66, and MCA-66. The Home Audio app uses your existing WiFi network to communicate with your HTD central controller; no internet connection is required. Multiple systems on the same network can be controlled from the one app and it supports up to 8 concurrent users.
Quickly access and control what you want.
Monitor and control all zones from a single system status page or drill into an individual zone for additional control. Use single button presses to quickly mute/un-mute all zones, power off all zones, or power on all zones to their previous state. Use "party" mode to power on all zones to a common source, and place a zone in DND (Do Not Disturb - Lync only) so that others don't interupt a zone.
Customize your whole-house audio system.
Enter unique zone names and source names for both the app and keypads. Uniquely set treble, bass, and balance for every zone. Hide zones and sources you don't want to appear in the app. For Lync 6v3 and Lync 12v3, also easily hide sources from appearing on keypads on a per zone basis.
Add shortcuts to popular apps like Spotify, Apple Music, Prime Music, and Tidal.
If you've connected a music streamer, such as a SONOS Port, Echo Dot, Wiim, Chromecast or Airplay device to your whole-house audio system, you'll benefit from adding shortcut buttons from a list of 40+ popular music services and apps. Shortcuts make it easy to toggle between what you want to hear (the music service app) and where you want to hear it (the Home Audio app). Learn more.
Create zone groups.
Create groups of zones such as "Common Areas", "Kids' Rooms", and "Outdoor Areas" to set a common source, set a common volume, relatively control volume across all zones within the group, mute/un-mute or power off zones.
Create an unlimited number of audio "scenes".
Create audio scenes called "Presets" that set up one or more zones in your home with a single button press. For every zone, set power on/off, source, volume, and Do-Not-Disturb (Lync only). Imagine pressing a single button to execute multiple commands at once for "Entertain", "Casual Listening", "Morning Wake-up", or "End of Day".
Customize everyone's experience!
Back up custom settings from one smart phone or tablet and restore those same settings to a different device. From there, each smart phone or tablet can be customized with its own set of Shortcuts, Groups and Presets. You can also limit the zones and sources available to each smart device and then "lock" the device with a 4-digit security code. Great for kids and guests!
Is special hardware required?
HTD gateway model GW-SL1 or WGW-SL1 is required for the app to communicate with the central controller over your home's existing WiFi network. All of our current, pre-configured Mid-Level and Advanced (Lync) Whole House Audio sets already include the WGW-SL1 gateway.
How easy is it to set up?
Automatic system detection over most Wi-Fi networks has you using the app in under a minute. A simple, one-time process for manually configuring the app to your system is also provided.
What does it cost?
If I've been using the HTD MC or HTD Lync app, should I switch to the HTD Home Audio app?
In most cases, YES! If you are using a very old phone or tablet, the HTD Home Audio app may not be available and you can continue using the older apps, but please be aware we can no longer support them. Otherwise, we highly recommend switching. Read our blog post for tips on switching from the HTD MC or HTD Lync app.
