If you have an already installed a Crestron home automation system into your home, or if you are looking to install Crestron for the first time, you may be wondering if it is possible to integrate Sonos with your Crestron system. The answer is you can!
Sonos and Crestron have worked collaboratively to make sure the integration is as good as it possibly can be, and with excellent results.
For example, you are able to launch the Sonos app on your iPad or iPhone within the Crestron Home Automation System, which reduces the need for you to open and close different apps. This makes the integration as user friendly as it possibly can be. Thanks to the Sire gateway, if you have an existing Crestron system, it is possible to install Sonos too.
Using Sonos with your Crestron Home Automation system is an excellent way to enjoy music within your home. You can easily get access to iTunes, internet radio, and Spotify using the latest user-friendly interface. Your home entertainment is taken to another level thanks to this partnership, as Crestron allows you to distribute music throughout your home at the click of a button.
For those of you who want to make use of Sonnex, which is a high-end premium audio distribution solution developed by Crestron, it works well with this too. Using Sonnex, it allows you to group a number of audio channels together and allows you to calibrate rooms with the possibility of adding sub-woofers to audio zones. This takes the sound experience to another level.
For example, in a recent project completed by Custom Controls in Dubai, they installed a unique sound system to the client’s basketball court. They installed four high quality outdoor speakers, attached to the floodlights which were there already, and enhanced this sound by installing a number of sub woofers to each corner. When the user plays basketball, they can simply choose a playlist, set the volume and play!
So, as you can see, the integration of Sonos and Crestron together has increased the flexibility and functionality of both systems, so we would certainly recommend that you install both in your home for a revolutionary sound experience.
