Sonos Integration by Hubitat

Welcome to the heart of intelligent home automation

Hubitat Elevation offers a built-in Sonos integration app that allows you to easily add existing Sonos devices to your Hubitat Elevation hub. This allows them to be used in rules and other apps alongside your other devices. Let’s dive into the Sonos integration app on Hubitat Elevation and explore how it enhances your smart home experience.

Sonos Integration: Seamless Control and TTS Capabilities
The Sonos Integration app built into Hubitat Elevation allows you to easily control your Sonos speakers directly from your hub. Here’s what you need to know:
Control and Automation
By integrating Sonos with Hubitat, you gain control over your Sonos speakers within the Hubitat ecosystem.
Inclusion in Rules and Apps
Adding your Sonos devices to Hubitat allows them to become part of your rules and other Hubitat automations/apps.
Playback Functions
With this integration, you can play, pause, skip tracks, and adjust volume—all from the Hubitat interface (or, even better, as part of an automation!).
Voice Notifications
The Sonos integration extends beyond music control. You can use Sonos speakers as text-to-speech (TTS) devices.
Elevate your home automation with Hubitat.

Announcements and Alerts

Create rules or apps that make announcements on your Sonos speakers.

Examples of automations you can create include:

Announce when the front door is opened.x

Announce when the front door is opened.

Alert you when a window stays open for a certain amount of time.

The Sonos integration app is built into your hub. To add, navigate to Apps and select Sonos Integration, then wait for your speakers to be discovered, and follow the prompts to add the devices to your hub.

To test the integration, navigate to Devices and find your newly added speakers in the list. Try commands such as Speak (providing text to speak when testing the command) or Pause to see how they work.

Using Sonos in Automations

Many built-in apps allow use of Sonos devices for automations. For example the built-in Notifications app allows you to easily configure TTS announcements based on events, such as a door or window opening or closing or a lock remaining unlocked for a certain amount of time. Rule Machine allows more advanced control, enabling combining conditionals and other advanced actions to allow advanced customization of if or when speech notifications happen. The built-in Hubitat Safety Monitor app also allows using speech devices, including Sonos speakers, as a way to announce intrusion alerts; smoke detection, water leaks, or other configured monitoring alerts; and more!
