New unknown network showing in the home

A new network is showing in my home, I have tried turning everything off however it does not relate to anything I am aware of. The network shows on settings under WIFI as SNS/AhcBCgACAZSfPt8OFwE. Can anyone help identify what this is, I am concerned it is spyware. Thank you for any help you can give.

It could quite simply be the network 'name' given by an ISP that a neighbour hasn't changed to something more personal.

It's a Sonos speaker - either yours or a neighbour's.

There's nothing to worry about.

The Sonas system has been in the house a year and a half and this has never shown, curious as to why it would suddenly show on WIFI network, when the power was turned off it did not reappear? Just wondered if you have any idea why that would be. Thank you

When a Sonos speaker is broadcasting that peculiar network name then it's usually in setup mode. However, if it's working fine then it's probably best to leave it as it is.
