Is there a good way to allow visitors and guests to control my SoundTouch system while they are visiting? For example, is there a way to create a "guest account" with permission to access my SoundTouch components, without my having to give out my own personal account credentials?
Or, is there a way to enable a "guest mode" on my system so that others with the SoundTouch app could control my components once they are accessing the Wifi at my home?
I figure that once they have the credentials to access my home WiFi they pretty much shopuld be allowed to change and adjust the music.

Thank you for the post. There is not a "Guest Mode" function for the SoundTouch application. You could however have them once they log into your WiFi network, just download the SoundTouch application and it will automatically detect the account on the network without you having to provide a password.
Let us know if you have any other questions.

I suggest bluetooth for guests (if you have new series speakers that have that option). They won't have as much control of the system, but in most cases, I bet it would be enough.

It's not a Nightmare.
I asked for guest functionality, not unrestricted access.
And, I don't think anybody on your network can play anything they want. Right now, a SoundTouch account and password is required. I am suggesting a guest account with the ability to play. And, a guess password would be fine, although I control who can access my WiFi network, and it is password protected, so the "nightmare" you suggest is only possible if you have an open, promiscuous network.
