Since its introduction in 2003, Control4 has become a leading professionally-installed automation system in residential as well as commercial applications. Interoperability with approximately 14,000 third-party products along with availability in over 100 countries has significantly expanded the convenience of the unified smart home experience.
Control4 integration enables the elegance of Josh.ai in any environment regardless of the system's product mix. The combination of Josh.ai’s natural, private, and contextually aware voice automation with Control4’s intuitive user interfaces and interoperability with tens of thousands of consumer devices results in a robust variety of smart home experiences. Josh.ai's access to Control4 lights, shades, thermostats, audio content, video distribution, scenes, and more provides limitless control possibilities.
Josh.ai directly communicates with Control4 devices using proprietary Natural Language Processing, simply speak to Josh as if a friend is standing by.
“OK Josh, dim the lights upstairs.”
"OK Josh, draw the master bedroom curtains.”
"OK Josh, set the living room to 70 degrees.”
"OK Josh, Listen to country music in the backyard.”
"OK Josh, watch ESPN in the game room.”
"OK Josh, lock the back door.”
Once online and its Certified driver is added to a Control4 project, Josh.ai will instantly begin pulling in Control4's connected devices and compatible services. Within seconds, users can enjoy the freedom of natural voice control throughout their living spaces.
Josh.ai directly supports the following Control4 devices to maximize installation efficiency, optimize supportability, and empower all users with natural voice commands:
Through its Certified Control4 driver, Josh.ai understands what media sources are accessible in each area of the home. Through this hardware agnostic approach, Josh.ai seamlessly supports any system design no matter the complexity or components. As long as Control4 provides the routing backbone, Josh.ai will be able to communicate from endpoint to endpoint. The interface has been designed with dealer feedback and guidance, allowing installers to set up complicated distributed AV workflows accurately and efficiently, without re-doing their original programming.
The end result enables the user experience of walking into a theater, and asking, “OK Josh, watch Breaking Bad.” Josh.ai understands the request is coming from the theater, utilizes a knowledge graph to find Breaking Bad on Netflix, determines which AV source can provide that content, informs Control4 to route that source, activate the video environment, and -- like magic -- Breaking Bad starts playing!
