Our Josh Voice-Controlled Home Automation System Creates Your Perfect Environment.
What if controlling what’s going on in your home didn’t require you to have a device in your hand? Our Josh Voice-Controlled Home Automation system does just that.
Josh goes beyond the technology available in big box stores to create an atmosphere where you can simply speak your mind, and the room transforms however you desire. While Josh can be accessed using a mobile phone app or a pod-like device similar to Alexa or Siri, you can speak to Josh via nearly invisible smart microphones throughout your home. In fact, Josh is the world’s first architectural microphone.
The Josh Nano microphones are tiny 1.6” in diameter disks that are only .12” thick. These microphones easily affix to your walls next to light switches or other already existing controls. Currently, Josh nano microphones are available in white or black to be as unobtrusive as possible. Each of these disks has a privacy switch to make it easy to turn off the microphone from listening to conversations in a room.
As you walk through your home, you can use natural phrases such as “Josh, turn on the lights in here” or “Josh, make the room brighter.” Josh has an extended vocabulary as a true AI (artificial intelligence) system, so there’s no need to memorize a few key phrases. Suppose your family has specific nicknames for rooms (for example, “Ben’s bedroom” or “the game room”). In that case, you can easily program these into the software so your family can use them to reference specific areas of your home.
One significant advantage of Josh is that you can use multiple commands at one time. For example, you can say, “Josh, please turn on the lights in here and make the room warmer.” Or, you can make a list of requests such as “Josh, turn on some music I’ll like and close the window shades and turn up the air conditioner and show me what’s going on in the backyard.” Josh will make all these adjustments and provide you with a view of the backyard security camera on your mobile device.
If you have a routine, it’s simple to verbally create a “scene” for Josh to program several commands to happen with one phrase or simultaneously each day. For example, you can create a “Goodnight” scene with commands to close blinds, dim lights, and play soft instrumental music at 9 PM every evening or when you say, “Josh, Goodnight.”
