Hi all! Alongside the announcement of our new product line today, we're sharing a bit of our plans around the upcoming Bose Smart Home API that will come along with that new line of products. Check out the blog post for all the details. If you have any questions, feel free to ask away here in this thread and we'll answer where we can!

    We are actually 6 months after announcements and supported devices are available widely on the market.
    Any updates? :smile:

    Hi all,

    Apologies for my delay in getting back to this thread! A couple comments:

    1) The link to the blog post was indeed broken, but it should be fixed now
    2) I don't have any specific updates to share on API availability other than we're still working on it! This forum category is definitely the place to stay tuned for when we do have updates we can share.

    I'm using a smart home gateway (homey), it would be nice if i could control my Bose soundbar 700 with it. E.g. change volume, change TuneIn channel etc.
    Will the API be available for the soundbar 700?

    ps. Do you guys have a sneak preview perhaps?

    Hi @jeroenw

    The API will indeed be available for the Soundbar 700 once it is released! No details I can share around a sneak preview at this time though. Stay tuned!

    Just bought a Bose Home 500, and did some tests. It appears that one API-call is already working. Try
    http://{ip-address}:8090/info. You will get some information from the device, at least I got it. The info in json format, not XML as in  the Soundtouch series.

    That is what I also found out but is there no more info. Is there no list of commands of the current API ?  I suggest that the Bose app on my phone is also working with a API.
    So Bose please provide a RESTful API  on the soundbar 700 and Home 500. this will helps a lot with integration. Even Philips Hue has a Restful-API.
