The Sonos 200 Controller is an intuitive device that allows you to access your Sonos-enabled sound system. The Sonos 200 Controller can be placed into two different low-power usage modes. In locked mode the controller will turn off its screen and not respond to input but will remain ready for use and will continue to consume a small amount of power. In deep sleep mode, the controller will power down completely until it is returned to its charging cradle.
