Control4 and Josh AI: The Smart Home Dream Team


Home automation is getting smarter and easier to use. You can now control your entire home with a voice command or with the touch of a button. If you have a Control 4 system, you may already know how easy it is to use. Control 4 works with voice assistants like Alexa and Google Home Assistant. Now Control 4 users have another option — Josh AI, the most intelligent voice assistant on the market.


Josh AI’s cutting-edge language processing technology is available for Control4 customers. This dream team creates a complete system of home automation and voice command technology that is sure to turn your home into the smart home of your dreams.


Why Josh AI?


If you have any smart devices, then you’ve probably interacted with a voice assistant before, but none like Josh AI. Josh was created to make using your smart home easier and more natural. Josh is a unique artificial intelligence-powered voice control system that integrates with Control4’s smart home technology.


Josh was created using proprietary technology that allows it to understand conversations, not just simple voice commands. When you talk to Josh, it responds as a human would. Josh’s language processing technology is what allows it to interact with you in a more natural way.


Josh AI is easy to use


If you’ve used other voice command systems, you will love Josh AI. He listens to millions of variations of speech and conversation. You can have a conversation with him, and he will understand everyone in the room. He is so easy to use that your family and guests can use him too.


Josh is the first voice control system that can understand millions of variations of commands. Other systems are often limited to preset voice commands. You have to memorize the phrases you can use to control your smart home. It’s a pain. With Josh, you don’t need to memorize anything. Just say what you want and Josh will understand.


If you’ve ever used a voice assistant that couldn’t understand you, you won’t have that problem with Josh. He understands different accents, dialects, and tones of voice. The more you speak to him, the more he adapts and responds to your commands. He gets better and better over time as he learns your speech patterns,and preferences.


Josh keeps your private conversations private


Josh is a technology that listens, but he only listens when you want him to listen. The creators of Josh understand your concern about having a device in your home that can listen to you, so they made Josh to protect your privacy. They programmed him to only listen when you use the magic words, “Hey Josh” or “Okay Josh”.


Whenever you need to have a private conversation, just tap Josh. An orange light will come on when he’s muted so that you know your voice is not being listened to. You are in charge of how much data Josh collects, and you can delete this data at any time.


How does Josh AI work?


Josh AI comes with three components: Josh Core, Josh Nano, and Josh Micro. Josh Core is the main control hub that talks to your Control4 system. Josh Nano and Micro are the microphones that you talk to. You need to buy Josh core first, then choose your choice of either Josh Nano or Josh Micro (or both).


Josh Nano is the bigger brother of the two microphones, but it's still small enough to blend in with your home. It can be added to any room without taking up a lot of space. It comes in black or white and measures 42mm by 3mm. It's easy to switch off the mic on Josh Nano when you don't want it to hear you.


Josh Micro is a little smaller than Josh Nano. It’s so compact, you can keep it anywhere in your house. It can be mounted or simply placed on a table, desk or counter. Its stylish design allows you to place it anywhere in your home without detracting from the aesthetics.
