The award-winning Sonos speakers are your best Work-From-Home companion during this ‘Circuit Breaker’ or Movement Control Order period. Sonos was also recently awarded the Reader’s Choice Award for Best Smart Speaker Brand for the HWM + Tech Awards 2020. Here’s how Sonos is able to get through the day, from waking up in the morning, staying on tasks, unwind and relax during breaks and finally catch your favourite Netflix series when the day is over.

Rise and Shine with Sonos Alarms

Sonos smart speakers acts like your personal assistant, starting with your morning call alarm to start work. Throughout the day, Sonos alarms can help to break up your day with reminders to get outside for fresh air and a walk, start making lunch and dinner, and to log off. This helps to remind you to do the things that keep your head clear and be productive.

Setting up your day with Sonos voice assistant

Integrate Sonos with your favourite voice assistant such as Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant and you could easily manage your calendar with your voice. Simply say “Alexa, add ‘team conference call at 10 am’ to my calendar,” or “Hey Google, what’s on my calendar today?”

Be in control with Sonos Desktop App Integration

With the desktop apps for both Macs and PCs, Sonos gives you a direct control to Browse and search content, control the volume, group rooms, and pause the music when your boss calls. You can use line-in to connect your computer directly to Play:5 with the built-in 3.5mm jack, or Port or Amp with RCA in. For content you can’t control with the Sonos desktop app (like YouTube videos and sounds from websites), there’s Apple AirPlay 2 for Mac users.

Motivate with Sonos Playlist

Without the normal daily cues to speak with your colleagues or perhaps you’re doing something repetitive and need something more engaging to keep up your energy, Sonos playlist can get you motivated with music.

Featuring electronic, film scores, instrumental hip hop, post-rock, and more, this playlist can provide some momentum without distracting you from the task at hand.

When you have hit a wall and want to take a breather, you don’t have to leave the music behind. Grab the Sonos speakers and head to your balcony for some fresh air, sunshine, and a new perspective. With auto Trueplay it will sound great no matter where you take it.

At the end of the workday, your speakers will be there with great music to help you blow off steam or a comforting TV show to help you relax. Just don’t forget to set an alarm to wake up for another productive day.
