It’s beginning to sound a lot like Christmas – with this smart music system

Christmas is not only a time to celebrate and spend time with our loved ones – it’s also a time filled with wonderful things to see, smell, taste and hear. Contrary to what you might believe, modern technology doesn’t have to detract from the age-old, familiar traditions of Christmas: You could program custom light scenarios to complement your gently flickering candles, or set your intelligent temperature controller to automatically keep your home cosy on cold winter days. And with the perfect Christmas soundtrack playing in the background, your home will feel even more festive.

Conduct your own festive concert – with your voice

Whether you go for classic Christmas carols or a playlist of all the pop hits, the latest technology allows you to conduct your very own festive concert. The smart new Sonos One speaker can be controlled via the Sonos app or Apple AirPlay 2 on your mobile device. If your smartphone isn’t at hand, you can even control your Christmas playlist with your voice: The Sonos One provides intuitive voice control via Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

Sonos One for festive mood music in all rooms

The Sonos One connects to your devices via WiFi or Bluetooth to deliver crystal-clear sound to any room in your home. Its two integrated amplifiers provide clear, room-filling acoustics and a deep bass – which you can enjoy anywhere thanks to the moisture-resistant housing. Whether you place it on your kitchen worktop, on a shelf in your living room, or in the bathroom, the minimalist design and neutral monochrome colours of the Sonos One make it a perfect fit for virtually any interior.
If you have multiple Sonos speakers installed in your home, you can use the Gira X1 miniserver to create your own smart music system. Via the Gira X1 app on your smartphone or tablet, you can choose where you want the music to play – so the kids can sing along in the bedroom while you’re decorating the tree.

Create a multi-room smart music system with the Sonos One

As the latest Sonos One speakers feature built-in Alexa technology, you don’t need an additional Amazon device to connect them to the Gira X1. With this smart trio of technology, you can control not only your music, but also other aspects of your in-home technology, using your voice.

Or you could connect your lighting to your sound system in the Gira X1 app, and configure your setup to play Christmas music whenever you switch on the lights in a particular room. The Gira S1 remote access module provides a secure connection and takes care of encrypted communication between the Gira X1 and all of your Smart Home devices.
