Josh.ai continues expanding the power of artificial intelligence in the home with its updated Lutron support. Integration with the QSX processor for HomeWorks enables Josh.ai’s proprietary voice automation, intuitively designed app, and privacy-focused approach to home control to blend into the aesthetic of any project.
The integration provides feature parity across Josh.ai’s app and voice interfaces. Users will seamlessly be able to adjust the brightness, color, vibrancy, and temperature of Ketra lights in whatever fashion feels most natural.
After a button press authenticates the QSX processor for HomeWorks, Josh.ai utilizes Lutron’s state of the art LEAP integration protocol to automatically pull in Lutron’s floor plan configuration and device programming. The instant discovery and control of Lutron devices has been built with the installer in mind to expedite the implementation process. Supported devices within Josh.ai’s native control will include Ketra (Clear Connect Wireless – Type X), dimmable lights, switched loads, shades, fans, and keypads. Thermostat compatibility will roll out in a future update.
Clients will experience an unmatched level of convenience and ambiance when setting the mood to their exact specifications. For example, commands like “Ok Josh, make the lights cooler” and “Ok Josh, turn the sconces to 2100 Kelvin” open up a limitless range of possibilities. The integration becomes truly transformative when giving complex requests like, “OK Josh, make the lights on the first floor tangerine, draw the living room shades, and listen to Carlos Santana in the dining room.”
“Lutron’s innovations continue to inspire, particularly in the areas of aesthetics and convenience, ” said Alex Capecelatro, CEO of Josh.ai. “Our device integrations and complementary products are extremely important as we recommend solutions for luxury clients who want robust performance as well as reliability. Our goal with Josh.ai is to deliver a magical experience, and we’re thrilled that our partnership with Lutron provides such a dynamic element to that vision.”
“Giving Lutron’s and Josh.ai’s joint clients a robust and reliable transformative lighting and shading experience helps us redefine the luxury home,” said Sam Chambers, Senior Director of Residential Systems, at Lutron. “Working with best-in-class brands like Josh.ai helps Lutron stay true to its number-one principle of taking care of our customers with superior goods and services.”
