LOUISVILLE, Ky.—October 19, 2020— GE Appliances (GEA), a Haier company, has integrated its suite of appliance products with the Sonos wireless sound system for a more seamless smart home experience. As the first appliance company to team-up with Sonos, consumers can set up helpful appliance notifications, such as an alert that the oven is pre-heated or the dishwasher cycle is done, through Sonos speakers throughout their home.
Sonos speakers can be paired with compatible appliances through the GEA smart home platform and app, SmartHQ. At launch, appliances that will be compatible with Sonos include GEA branded ovens, cooktops and refrigerators, and will eventually expand throughout the full GE Appliances’ portfolio.
“In a world where touchless technology and multi-tasking from home are more useful than ever, integrated notifications for our users’ appliances makes tasks even easier,” said 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.”
