Josh.ai and Lutron join forces
Lutron Electronics has announced a new offering that combines the power of a Lutron keypad with the Josh.ai Nano voice control device.
The Josh.ai Ready Wallplate combines the elegance of Lutron keypads, along with the flexibility of Josh Nano, the world’s first architectural microphone, to bring beauty, simplicity, and privacy to all luxury projects.
It will be compatible with Palladiom, seeTouch, and Pico keypads, with Palladiom metal and plastic finish options. All projects with the Josh.ai Ready Wallplate will require a Lutron lighting control processor, as well as a Josh Core, which integrate seamlessly together to bridge both voice and the touch of a keypad. In addition, each room where the wallplate is installed will require a speaker capable of connecting to Josh via VoiceLink or VoiceCast, which lets you send Josh’s response through high quality speakers.
Lutron senior director of luxury residential, Samuel Chambers says: “By adding this solution on projects, dealers are providing endless possibilities to their clients and giving homeowners an aesthetically pleasing solution that is at the forefront of innovation”.
The Josh.ai Ready Wallplate delivers the ability to control a variety of home technology with voice, while maintaining tactile control for the most used scenes, accessible at the touch of a button through keypads.
This blend of control solutions into the background of a home provides uncompromising design and intuitive user experiences. As with all Josh.ai products, end-clients can rest assured that their data is kept private and safe, and will never be shared or used for marketing purposes.
Josh.ai chief executive Alex Capecelatro says: “Josh.ai is proud to partner with Lutron, a leader and innovator in our industry. One of the biggest benefits of voice is turning complicated tasks into simple ones. With these new keypads, you not only get the elegant experience of tactile control from Lutron, but you also can now control nearly everything in your home from the same keypad, all without compromising privacy and security.”
