Russound RNET


The russound_rnet platform allows you to control Russound devices that make use of the RNET protocol.

This has initially been tested against a Russound CAV6.6 unit with six zones and six sources. It will also work with a Russound CAA66, but be sure to use a null-modem cable.

Connecting to the Russound device is only possible by TCP, you can make use of a TCP to Serial gateway such as tcp_serial_redirect

To add a device to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
media_player:
  - platform: russound_rnet
    host: 192.168.1.10
    port: 1337
