Josh.ai partners up with Xspot
With Josh.ai preparing for its first deliveries of Josh Nano, its new design-first microphone, the company is also equipping its installers with the tools necessary to seamlessly integrate voice control into smart homes from the ground up.
Xspot offers pre-wire flexibility to builders to ensure that voice control will be a foundational piece of the smart home in the future. Xspot products are very accurate used in conjunction with other technologies like sensors, touch screens, speakers, etc and this enables dealers to confidently pre-wire their systems, knowing they will be on target within a quarter-inch of less.
It will also enable clients to dictate where they want private, intuitive and magical user experiences without compromising on any interior design elements.
Josh Nano has been purpose-built to integrate into its surroundings and now with Xspot, it will seamlessly become part of the background of the world’s most luxurious homes. Measuring only 0.1 inches thin and 1.6 inches in diameter, Josh Nano is installed flush on a wall for an impeccably discreet voice experience. Josh Nano also can be covered with a square or circular paintable cover, which practically makes it invisible for discerning clientele.
Josh.ai chief executive Alex Capecelatro says Josh Nano was designed for architects, designers, home builders and homeowners alike.
“In addition to being in the most technologically advanced homes in the world, we also want Josh.ai to be in the most elegant and delightful environments imaginable. Our goal is to extend the concept of voice control and not needing a manual user interface. Xspot empowers our installers to place Josh Nano or Josh Micro anywhere in a room where it makes sense while preserving the home’s aesthetic integrity, which gets us one step closer to providing a truly integrated smart home experience.”
Xspot inventor Mark Sipe came up with the concept of Xspot when he was an integrator and there was a need to better control projects.
“Hoping some other trade had the same understanding of our work and would always do exactly what was needed for us to find our wires later wasn’t going to happen, it’s not their job. After wiring a large home for one of the first Microsoft employees and having 37 locations buried or moved I started to design a solution. It had to be easier, faster and more accurate, Xspot is all of these. Being recognized as a partner by Josh.ai is an honour, given their expertise and experience.”
