Halloween Scene Creation & Inspiration with Josh.ai 🎃

  1. Go to your scene editor in the Josh App and click "Add Scene."
  2. Set the name you want for your scene. I chose "Halloween."
  3. Now you are going to add any triggers that you would like. For my trigger, I am adding "set the mood" and an automated conditional for "When the sun is no longer out," which will automatically activate this scene when it is dark outside.
  4. Now for the spooky part, we can add some fun additions when the scene turns on the lights. In the "Actions" section, you can set devices to different states or get more advanced with conditionals. We will get advanced and use the natural language scene editor.
  5. In the scene editor, you can write, [Set the lights to orange, listen to monster mash and announce briefly everywhere “{a:https://maxjoshai.s3.us-west-2.amazonaws.com/creepy-music-box-halloween-music-horror-scary-spooky-dark-ambient-118577.mp3}"] This will set all of the lights to orange, play a Halloween classic and respond with some ominous mood-setting sounds that you can listen to HERE.
Visual Scene Creation Guide
  1. Navigate to the scene that you want to edit.
  2. Go to the "Responses" tab within that scene
  3. Select "Use Custom Responses"
  4. Now enter {w:DISPLAY}{a:URL}
  5. Within the "DISPLAY" section, enter what you want to be displayed within the app when the scene is executed. For example, "I witch you a Happy Halloween."
  6. Within the "URL" section, you can enter what audio you want Josh to broadcast as its response. I am going to go with crow noises for my good morning scene. This spooky sound will set the ambiance better than some happy birds chirping! Listen to the one I picked HERE.
  7. The final custom response section will look like this, {w:I witch you a Happy Halloween}{a:https://maxjoshai.s3.us-west-2.amazonaws.com/a-murder-of-crows-in-the-daytime-34778.mp3}
