Can you use Sonos as an Alarm?

Answered by Douglas Hiatt

You can definitely use Sonos as an alarm! I personally use it every day to wake up to my favorite songs. It’s a great way to start the day on a positive note.

To set a Sonos alarm, you’ll need to use the Sonos app on your iOS or Android device. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

1. Open the Sonos app on your mobile device and go to the Rooms tab. This tab shows all the Sonos speakers in your home.

2. Look for the Alarm icon, which looks like a clock. Tap on it to access the Alarm settings.

3. Once you’re in the Alarm settings, you’ll see a list of your existing alarms (if you have any). To create a new alarm, tap on the “New Alarm” button.

4. Now you can start customizing your alarm. The first thing you’ll need to set is the Time. Simply select the desired time you want the alarm to go off.

5. Next, you’ll need to choose the Room where you want the alarm to play. You can select one or multiple rooms, depending on your Sonos setup.

6. After that, you can choose the Music that you want to wake up to. Sonos gives you the option to play a specific song, a playlist, a radio station, or even a favorite podcast. You can browse your music library or use popular music streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music, or Pandora.

7. The Repeat option allows you to choose the days of the week you want the alarm to go off. You can select specific days or set it to repeat daily.

8. Adjust the Volume level to your liking. You can set it to a gentle fade-in or a louder volume to ensure you wake up on time.

9. If you want the alarm to play for a specific duration, you can set the Alarm Duration. This is particularly useful if you want to limit the time the music plays before it automatically stops.

10. Once you’ve set all the desired options, tap on the Save button to save your alarm settings.

11. tap on the Done button to exit the Alarm settings.

That’s it! Your Sonos alarm is now set and ready to wake you up in the morning. You can always go back to the Alarm settings to make changes or create additional alarms.

I hope this helps you use Sonos as an alarm! It’s a fantastic feature that adds a touch of music to your mornings. Let me know if you have any other questions.
