The connection request sent by the plurality of playback devices 12 can be received, and the wireless network information can be sent to the plurality of playback devices 12 at the same time, so as to save the time required for each playback device 12 to perform initialization one by one. The wireless controller 10 can be a smart phone, a tablet or other electronic device with wireless transmission function, and the playback device 12 is an audio, a wireless speaker, a broadcast device or a music player.

2 is a flow chart of a wireless controller part of a method for initializing and establishing a connection between surrounding devices according to the present invention. First, a user first clicks an initialization button on a wireless controller to cause the wireless controller to enter an initialization mode, as in step S10, initializing. The button is a control button of an application installed in the wireless controller, and the application is used to control the playback device 12; after entering the initialization mode, as described in steps S12 to S14, the wireless controller first sets a known one. The connection identification name, and then establish a wireless access point according to the connection identification name; in step S16, the wireless controller waits for the playback device that needs to be initialized to actively issue a connection request, and after waiting for a period of time, step S18 determines whether If there is a connection request, if it is not received, it is judged whether it is timed out in step S26, and if it has timed out, the wireless access point is turned off, as described in step S28, if it is not timed out, it continues to wait for the playback device that needs to be initialized to take the initiative. The connection request is issued; otherwise, if the connection request is received in step S18, the wireless controller performs a handover procedure with the playback device in steps S20-S22. The handshaking) method establishes a connection, and then determines whether it is a device that needs to be initialized. If not, it determines whether to timeout as described above in step S26. Otherwise, if it is a playback device to be initialized, the wireless controller in step S24 The connection information of a designated wireless network is sent to the playback device, and the information can be used by the playback device to limit the designated wireless network. Next, in step S26, it is judged whether or not the timeout is reached. After confirming that the playback device correctly receives the connection information, the connection with the playback device is interrupted in step S28, and the wireless access point is turned off.

The flow chart of the playback device section is as shown in Figure 3. When the playback device is activated, it will first connect to the specified wireless network according to the stored information. If the playback device does not store connection information, or cannot When a wireless network that has stored information establishes a connection, it will actively enter the initialization mode, as described in steps S30-S32. After entering the initialization mode, the playback device actively searches for the wireless access point of the known connection identification name in step S34, and after the search, the playback device will actively send a connection request to the wireless controller (as shown in FIG. 2). Step S16, the wireless controller waits for the connection request sent by the playback device, and establishes a connection with the wireless controller, as described in steps S36-S38; after establishing the connection, the wireless controller actively sends the connection to a designated wireless. The connection information of the network is sent to the playback device. After receiving the connection information, the playback device attempts to connect to the designated wireless network. If steps S40-S42 are performed, if the connection fails, the device returns to step S34 to continue searching. If there are other wireless access points with known connection identification names, if the connection is successful, the playback device will switch back to the playback mode in step S44.

For example, there are two playback devices to be initialized and a smart phone with an application installed. The application in the smart phone is a program that controls the playback device corresponding to the playback device. First set the two playback frames to the specified position, connect the power and turn on the switch; then open the application on the smart phone and click the "One button initialization" button, the user does not need to make any settings or operations, directly wait for the two playback devices After receiving the relevant connection information and connecting to the designated wireless network, the smart phone can be left in the initialization mode and enter the control page of the playback device in the application to control the playback device.
