Answer:

The information below is for third-party home automation systems.

  • A third-party smart home automation system is not required to use the Sub-Zero Group Owner's App or its features and functions.
  • Home automation companies write programs for their products to communicate with appliances. Classic Refrigeration and E Series Ovens have these programs available for Control4, Crestron, and Savant.
    • Control4 discontinued this feature in late 2018.
    • It is now possible to connect to both the Sub-Zero Group Owner's App and third-party home automation system Control4.

Control4 Integration

  • All connected capable Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove products can be connected to the Control4 home automation system.
  • Appliances use the connected module and the Sub-Zero Group Owner's App to connect.

Product Considerations:

Classic (formerly Built-In) Series

  • Classic products are compatible with Control4, Crestron, and Savant brand smart home automation systems.
  • Depending on the serial number, a new control board may be necessary for Classic products to work with these home automation products.

Original E Series

  • E Series Ovens can be compatible with both smart home control brands, but the control board must be replaced by a Factory Certified Service Company.
  • Use part number 823155 to update the product.
  • Model number format for these E Series Ovens is similar to SO30-2F/S. The -2 is in all original E Series model numbers.

Current E Series

  • New E Series Ovens ship from the factory as compatible with the smart home technology systems listed above.
  • Model number format for these E Series Ovens is similar to SO30TE/S/TH. There is no -2 in the model number.

M Series Ovens

  • Starting with serial number 17459188, M Series Ovens are built connected ready and could connect with home automation systems.
  • The Control4 system can integrate with M Series Ovens using the Sub-Zero Group Owner's App.
  • Home automation vendors still need to write a program to enable their home automation system to communicate with the oven, but the oven has everything it needs.

Designer (formerly Integrated) Products

  • Designer products starting with serial number 5700000 are built connected ready and could connect with home automation systems.
  • The Control4 system can integrate with Designer products using the Sub-Zero Group Owner's App.
  • Home automation vendors still need to write a program to enable their home automation system to communicate with the product, but Designer products after this serial break have everything needed.
