Here at Josh.ai, we’re always looking out for cool and useful IoT products to live with in our homes. With 2021 starting off, we want to highlight a few of these products that we’ve found. Many people know about them, but some may not, and these are perfect for anyone who wants to enhance their setup. The best part is that you can upgrade your current system yourself.

Philip Hue

Philips Hue has been around for a long time now and is considered one of the first DIY smart lights in the industry. Philips Hue has vastly expanded its line of different lighting solutions, but still has amazing starter kits to get things going. …


From a global pandemic to a rollercoaster election to an exciting new product launch here at Josh.ai, 2020 has been a year like no other. As we look forward to what 2021 has in store, we thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of the most used commands for home voice control last year with Josh.ai.

Below is our list of the top 10 voice commands used in 2020. Note that privacy is at the core of how Josh operates, and our users have the option to share as much or as little data as they choose. Therefore, this list comes from only the data chosen to be shared by our users. Also, all of the data is anonymized and never used / stored for any sort of marketing or sales purposes. …

Here at Josh.ai, we’ve always been fascinated by how technology can change your life. Josh Micro, for example, was designed and built specifically to enable people to live and engage with their homes in ways not thought possible. To that end, we are happy to introduce our new Imagine More … campaign, which invites you to think about technology and get inspired about ways it could change your everyday life at home and beyond.

Our world is rapidly changing. Depending on where you live you might be more prone to fires, hurricanes, or any number of natural disasters. It is important for us to be as aware and as safe as possible. This summer, for example, proved to be challenging for many people in the Rockies and Western United States due to wildfires. Watching metrics, such as the AQI or air quality index, is an easy way to tell if the air around is safe to breathe, and making these metrics easily accessible through technology can help to bring real value to someones everyday life. …

We invite you to Imagine More …. Time

Decisions, decisions… Like most of us, you may routinely find yourself struggling to make simple everyday choices. Things like, where to get dinner, who should do the chores, or what to watch on TV. These are a few of the common questions that come up for my girlfriend and me in our home. However, after deploying Josh.ai, we consult Josh all of the time to help make these decisions with us and have more fun in the process!

One of the most user friendly and customizable features of a Josh system is the ability to program custom responses for each scene. Josh also allows you to add as many custom responses as you would like and cycles through them randomly each time the scene is triggered with a voice command. …

We invite you to Imagine More …. Privacy

The smart home has become significantly more intelligent the last few years, but at a price. While technology is always becoming smarter, faster, and more intuitive, the cost of these advancements is often in user and data privacy. Big tech has intruded our livelihoods, using its smart assistants as a trojan horse to collect user data for targeted advertising among other monetization efforts. …

Josh.ai has documented deployment and programming best practices for voice control of Lutron systems, an industry first to provide installers with a guide to optimize user experiences.

Josh.ai continues expanding upon the power and capabilities of artificial intelligence in the home with its first white paper. Voice control is increasingly being adopted due to its universal accessibility, efficiency, and as a health-conscious means of touchless control in the wake of the global pandemic. The influx of demand is making it more important than ever that professionals have the proper guidance. Between its proprietary voice automation technology and privacy-focused approach to home control, Josh.ai is proud to be setting standards for the smart home to follow.

The white paper covers everything needed for successful installations of Josh.ai and Lutron systems. After authenticating with Lutron, Josh.ai will learn the home’s configuration by pulling in floors, rooms, and device types. Since Josh.ai is communicating directly to each device in a project, proper Lutron programming is critical to ensure a user-friendly experience. From detailed integration insight to advanced programming notation leveraging Josh.ai’s contextual natural language processing, the documentation will be a template going forward that ensures projects are efficiently and effectively deployed. …
