Through December 27th, Amazon is offering great deals on Sonos speakers with additional Amazon credit with purchases. Sonos speakers are compatible with SmartThings and allow you to do text-to-speech and play sounds to coincide with events such as motion. I am putting together a Christmas project involving a Sonos.
I am sold on the Sonos Play:1, but the soundbar looks awesome with a $50 Amazon credit included. I am also intrigued by the highly reviewed Sonos Connect which allows you to integrate with an existing home stereo system.
Ultimately, I would love to connect to my existing Onkyo system through an app. However, I am more excited about giving my SmartThings hub a voice.
