SONOS, Whole House Music

SONOS whole house music allows you to experience your favorite music from the only wireless music system that combines warm, full-bodied HiFi sound with the most powerful solutions for delivering rock-solid wireless performance in any home. A single app lets you play your entire music library, stream all of your favorite Music Services and tune in to more than 100,000 Internet radio stations and podcasts. Play the same song in every room, in perfect sync or play different music in every room from any source. Control your favorite music sources and listening experience with a free app for iOS, Android, Mac or PC. And since it is a modular system, you can easily add music to more rooms with a simple button press.

With an Alexa-enabled device such as an Amazon Echo or Echo Dot, you will soon be able to use Amazon’s popular Alexa service to control your SONOS whole house music system. The software integration was collaboratively built from the ground up using the Alexa Voice Service (AVS) SDK taps into both SONOS’ and Alexa’s existing music capabilities which means you do not have to learn additional commands or key words. Simply ask Alexa to play your music from Amazon Music, Spotify and more and it will flow to any group of SONOS speakers in your house. By integrating Alexa with your SONOS sound system, you can use your voice to play, pause, skip, control volume, and more.

The SONOS and Spotify Connect integration gives your system additional functionality that will make it the only whole house music system that can be fully controlled directly from the feature-rich Spotify app, including play controls and easy access to grouping and ungrouping of rooms. Spotify will be the first music streaming service that allows Spotify Premium listeners to have full control of the music all over their homes outside the SONOS app.

The inherently social listening experience also makes it possible for everyone in the home to control a listening session with both the Spotify and SONOS apps, which stay linked with one another. Have some friends coming over, they can connect to your WiFi and use their own Spotify app to instantly play music to your SONOS speakers without downloading the SONOS app. And since you can control your SONOS system when you are away from your home WiFi, you now have music playing for you as soon as you come home.

SONOS combined with Control4, makes it even easier for you to control your music at home, whether from a touchscreen panel, a light switch or a remote control, all with the simple push of a button.


SONOS smart speakers connect to one another over the existing Wi-Fi network in your home. If you want to fill your home with serious, uninterrupted sound and multi-room control, SONOS smart speakers are the solution. Bluetooth audio works by pairing a Bluetooth speaker to a smart device to access music. Because your smart device and speaker need to be physically close to each other, the wireless range, expandability, and control of a Bluetooth connection can be limited.
