LUTRON   +   JOSH.AI

Lutron and Josh.ai

Illuminating the smart home experience

From inventing the modern electronic dimmer in the late 1950s to offering full automation across an ever-expanding suite of robust solutions, Lutron has continuously guided innovation in lighting, shading, and environmental control.

About the Partnership

When innovative brands come together, technology gets better and simpler for the customer. Homeowners can conveniently activate their entire environment or fine-tune a single device in whatever way best suits their lifestyle. The Josh.ai and Lutron compatibility is built upon compliance with enhanced security standards to ensure a private user experience. Josh.ai’s proprietary natural voice control and elegantly designed app are continuously optimized to support Lutron’s newest features.

Unlimited Control

Josh.ai controls Lutron’s luxury smart home solutions using proprietary Natural Language Processing. Simply speak to Josh Micro as you would another human in your home.

"Raise all of the lights in the home."

"Close the shades 30% in the living room."

"Set the living room temperature to 70 degrees."

"Lower the speed of the fan."

"Open the left garage door."

Simple to Setup

Once the Lutron system is authorized, Josh.ai automatically detects and places devices in their respective room assignments. Within seconds, users can give simple commands like “Ok Josh, dim the kitchen lights and raise the living room shades".

Lutron Integrations

  • More Than Voice

    Josh Micro is equipped with a capacitive LED touch ring along its outer edge, which functions as a contextual slider that can be used to manipulate lighting, shades, and music volume. When a user gives a command to control light brightness like, “Ok Josh, dim the lights,” the touch slider is temporarily enabled to control the brightness for that room’s lights. Tracing a finger around the slider will then control the brightness of those lights. After a period of inactivity, the slider mode will return to its configurable default setting for that room.

    For Ketra control, Josh Micro’s LED slider displays a rainbow animation after a color-changing command is given. This allows for precise adjustments as homeowners strike the proper balance of an area’s pastels and saturated colors.
