Voice Control Paired With Lutron
Josh.ai is a voice-controlled integration to your home automation system, built to control and connect any “smart” device. The perfect look if you prefer to replace touch panels on the wall with a simple voice-activated control. Illuminating the home experience, Josh.ai has partnered with Lutron to give you control over your home’s lighting, shading, and climate. Lutron’s wall stations are beautifully and minimally designed to ensure they don’t pull focus from your home’s aesthetic. They can also be customized; for example, your kitchen wall station may say “sunny side up” to raise the lights, while “over easy” may mean to dim or turn off the lights. Lutron has also partnered with Palladiom to offer new chrome interfaces to their wall stations for an elegantly modern feel. Lutron’s wall stations can be controlled remotely with Josh.ai’s voice control or intuitive app. Homeowners can enjoy the convenience of saying phrases like, “Raise all of the lights in the home.”, “Close the shades 30% in the living room.”, or “Set the living room temperature to 70 degrees.” to activate their entire environment or fine-tune a single room.
