Crestron-Sonos.jpgCrestron dealers can now order Sonos products directly from Crestron, the company announced this week. The goal is to make it even easier for Crestron dealers to design and control any scale of Sonos whole-home audio system. The full range of Sonos products is available, including the PLAY line of tabletop speakers, the Playbar soundbar, the Playbase, the Sonos Sub, the Connect Amp, and more.

From Crestron
Crestron has announced the expansion of their dealer offering to include Sonos, the leading wireless home sound system. Crestron Technology Professionals (CTPs) in the United States are now able to purchase Sonos products direct from Crestron as part of their usual ordering process. The full range of Sonos products are available with Crestron's industry-leading shipping options.

"Expanding our collaboration with Sonos makes sense for our dealers and the upscale homeowners they serve," said John Clancy, VP of Residential Systems at Crestron. "With direct purchasing, it's now even easier for our dealers to offer Sonos speakers on any scale, from a single room to an entire estate, as part of a perfectly integrated Crestron home automation system."

"The custom integrator channel continues to be a major focus here at Sonos," said Andrew Vloyenetes, Director of Sales at Sonos. "Expanding our efforts with a true leader and innovator like Crestron is great for dealers and customers alike--together we're making it as easy as possible to listen to music out loud in any room of the home."

Thanks to the close technology collaboration between the two companies, the Sonos app can be seamlessly integrated with Crestron home automation systems. In addition to lights, shades, thermostats, theater systems, security and much more, homeowners can control Sonos products direct from Crestron touch screens, remotes, and keypads. They can view all of their Sonos favorites, play/pause the music, adjust the volume, view now-playing information with artwork, and add or remove zones as they move about the house. What's more, Sonos music can be integrated into personalized Crestron scenes, such as "Welcome Home," whereby a single tap of a touch screen, keypad, or personal device disarms the security system, turns on the kitchen and family room lights, adjusts the temperature to 72 degrees, and starts playing great tunes.
