# Discovery

The SonyAudio devices are discovered through UPnP in the local network and all devices are put in the Inbox.

# Thing Configuration

The SonyAudio Thing requires the network address, port and path as a configuration value in order for the binding to know how to access the device. Additionally, a refresh interval, used to poll the Sony Audio device, can be specified (in seconds).
