Private Zone

Private Zones

The Private Zone setting prevents remote control of connected audio outputs. A private zone can only be controlled from the device that it's connected to. This is most useful for personal devices like phones and tablets, that shouldn't be available as playback devices to other members of your household. You can make an audio output private by enabling the Private Zone setting on that device's settings page. 

First, choose the zone you wish to make private, click the volume button, and then the gear icon
Next, select "Device Setup" from the Zone Settings menu
Finally, in the Device Setup menu, you'll see the toggle switch that makes a Zone private
