What does this mean? Basically as long as you have a Sonos speaker and a compatible GE appliance, they’ll be able to talk to each other and alert you to things. For example, if you have an oven on pre-heat, if it is compatible then it will be able to let you know through the Sonos speaker that your oven is done pre-heating. It can also let you know about things like if the dishwasher is done, and so on.
According to Shawn Stover, executive director of SmartHome Solutions for GE Appliances, “The new integration with Sonos offers greater awareness of what is happening throughout the house without having to physically monitor every appliance, bringing added convenience, peace of mind and enhanced performance.”
It might be a bit of a novel feature, but if you want to make your home smarter and make you more efficient, then this is a feature that could be worth checking out.
