Hi, we have purchased 2 Era100 and set them up outside. They are undercover and won’t get wet.
But we are wondering how they will go with condensation due to cold weather? I see can they withstand humidity but nothing is mentioned about condensation.

According to the specification:

Operating temperature

32º to 104º F / (0º to 40º C

They aren’t listed as waterproof or water resistant that I can find so outside if it gets really damp might not be a good idea.

Roam or Move might be a better choice, or an Amp inside and Sonos/Sonance outdoor speakers outside.

Humidity resistance and bathroom placement

Some Sonos products have sealed architectures, making them humidity-resistant and allowing you to safely use them in the bathroom. Sonos speakers that are not waterproof may be damaged if exposed directly to water or left outside for extended periods.

The following products are humidity resistant:

  • Era 100
  • Era 300
  • Five
  • Move
  • Move 2
  • One (Gen 1)
  • One (Gen 2)
  • One SL
  • Play:1
  • Play:5 (Gen 2)
  • Roam
  • Roam SL
