CEDIA - Crestron Offers a Groundbreaking Way to Natively Control Sonos® Home Sound Systems

Exclusive feature enables seamless integration between the Sonos App and Crestron touchscreens

Rockleigh, NJ, September 6, 2016 - Crestron, the global leader in custom home automation and control technology, announces a groundbreaking new way to experience music with Sonos, a leading whole home music brand. The new collaboration enables the Sonos app to be seamlessly integrated with Crestron home automation systems via touchscreen.

Homeowners can now easily search for all of their favorite music, play and pause, adjust the volume, view now playing information with artwork and add or remove zones as they move about the house… all from a Crestron touch screen.
"The Crestron solution gets even better as we are the only partner who can run the Sonos app from within our native Crestron environment," said John Clancy, VP of Residential at Crestron. "All partners can deliver the fundamental Sonos controls but only with Crestron you can access everything Sonos can do directly from within our touch screens. This makes Crestron the only partner that really and truly is in perfect rhythm with Sonos."
Sonos and Crestron will be demonstrating the new integrated solution at CEDIA EXPO 2016 in Dallas, booth #4721. Stay tuned for more information being released after the CEDIA launch.
