Josh.ai announces integration with Comcast’s Xfinity X1
Josh.ai has expanded on its smart home control experience through a new integration with Xfinity X1 set-top boxes.
Using Josh.ai’s proprietary voice automation, Comcast customers with the X1 will be able to use the voice functionality of their remote alongside entire home control.
This includes all IP-enabled Xfinity set-top boxes on firmware 4.0p12s2 or newer. The boxes will auto-populate for configuration which lets integrators efficiently assign them as input sources in any system design to route content from room-to-room.
The X1 integration is rich in features and users can call channels by station name, number, surf channels up and down, open the channel guide, pause and play content and more.
“We’re excited about incorporating Xfinity X1 into our mix of solutions,” Josh.ai. chief executive Alex Capecelatro says.
“Our device integrations with complementary products are essential as we recommend innovative solutions for luxury clients who want performance as well as reliability. Our goal with Josh.ai is to deliver a truly innovative experience, and working with Comcast is another step towards that vision.”
