Beep have just announced Nest Protect support. http://static.thisisbeep.com/nest/. When a smoke or CO event happens, music automatically mutes so you can hear the alert.

Seems like a good idea for Sonos systems too.

A beep could be hooked to a Sonos input if you wanted to be able to use with Sonos.

I wouldn't want Sonos devoting time/effort to implementing a protocol that evey speaker watched for Nest signal to them.

SONOS implementing IFTTT would be worth devoting resources to more than Nest protect indvidually because 1) It supports input from Nest Protect 2) It supports many other services such as location services, dropbox, weather and much more

Yes agreed - a multiplatform ability.

Yep, I am with Josh and Chris,

if Sonos considers home-automation then a standardized approach like IFTT please and not particular support for a dedicated platform like Nest.

http://www.theverge.com/2015/5/28/8677119/google-project-brillo-iot-google-io-2015 Bet it won't be long until Brilo and Weave are supported on Nest. For the IoT, not tied to a single manufacturer.
Please note that Nest, or actually 'Works with Nest' is not a platform for just Nest products. Nest is the first hardware company to embrase Weave, the new IoT protocol from Google. Connecting with Nest would basically mean supporting Weave.
