Answer:

A third-party smart home automation system is not required to use the Sub-Zero Group Owner's App or its features and functions.

Compatible devices and integrations

To use the app, you will need a connected appliance, a wireless router and internet connection with your network name and password.

Download on the App Store

Compatible devices include: iPhone 6 or higher running iOS 9 or higher. Coming soon on Google Play for Android users.

Select appliances are enabled with Amazon Dash Replenishment. You can sign up for Dash Replenishment during device set-up, ensuring your appliance automatically reorders items like detergent pods and rinse aid when your supply is low.

Amazon Alexa

Connect your appliances through the Sub-Zero Group Owner’s App and then download and enable the Amazon Alexa skill. With Alexa, you can complete certain voice-enabled commands, such as adjusting ice production in your Sub-Zero freezer, setting the temperature on your Wolf oven, and turning on or off your Cove dishwasher.

Control4

Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove Wi-Fi enabled appliances have Control4 compatibility. Control4 is a home automation system that makes all the devices in your home work together. Contact your Control 4 dealer for integration instruction.

Google Assistant

With the Google Assistant, you can complete certain voice-controlled commands of your Wi-Fi enabled appliances. Adjust ice production in your Sub-Zero freezer, set the temperature on your Wolf oven, turn on or off your Cove dishwasher, and more.

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.
