Ikea to work with Sonos on new Smart Home products

Telecompaper:  Retailer Ikea has bumped up its smart home offering by entering into a partnership with speakers maker Sonos.  Together, the two parties will study how sound can contribute to life at home. Based on their conclusions, the two companies will develop smart products that integrate a “great sound experience” into home furnishings. Ikea and Sonos said they want to make it possible for more people to create the “right atmosphere” in their home using sound and design.

The first products based on this collaboration will be ready over the course of 2019.

The cooperation between Ikea and Sonos comes under the umbrella of Ikea Home Smart. These smart home systems started with the launch of wireless mobile charging stations in 2015, followed by smart lighting introduced in 2016. The exploration of smart sound systems is the third step for Ikea Home Smart.  Full Article:
