Josh Remote:

Josh Remote’s sleek handheld touch screen adds a complementary interface to systems that is complete with a dedicated “Speak to Josh” microphone icon. Clients giving voice commands through Josh Remote will experience the same contextual awareness that they enjoy with their microphones. While other remotes are dedicated to cable, satellite, or streaming navigation, Josh Remote empowers users to speak freely. Clients can access JoshGPT and control their whole home with deep-linking across video services via commands like:

“Dim the theater lights, close the blackouts everywhere, and can you recommend some movies similar to Top Gun?

Like magic, capably adjusts the lights, closes the home’s blackout shades, and provides a detailed list of movie recommendations.

Once a video zone is activated with a voice command, automated scene, or another remote, the intuitively designed Josh Remote interface tracks the state accordingly. An adaptive button profile updates based on the source so that the Josh Remote interface always accurately reflects the control capabilities of the current input. Clients can also personalize their remote interface with a unique background image, by adding or removing the voice button, and configuring quick access to up to eight custom scenes.

Intelligent Areas:

For example: now understands that while a thermostat might be installed in the Living Room, it also controls the temperature in the Kitchen and the rest of the rooms in a larger Great Room area. When a Josh Micro or Nano that is within the Great Room receives a command like, “Hey Josh, I’m cold,” it will know to activate the thermostat applicable to the proper area.

System Setup:

To facilitate its Intelligent Areas rollout, is launching its System Setup page to provide installers an efficient tool for configuring rooms and devices within their respective areas. The interface has been designed with programmer feedback, enabling complicated properties and floor plans to be mapped efficiently for the most natural user experience possible. For partners that are used to Lutron’s nesting structure, will capture data similarly and decrease the need to redo any system programming.

Device Defaults for Room Customization:

When a client has requested to turn off a room, has traditionally powered off all active devices. However, some projects require a more tailored experience. Device Defaults provides programmers with the means to preset exactly what should happen when a user gives a room-level on or off command. No matter what language structure a client uses, will initiate the room’s customized preset.
