Josh.AI Voice Control
Voice control is rapidly growing in popularity, and Josh.AI is at the forefront of this advancement with revolutionary technology that makes it easier than ever to have hands-free control of all your smart home devices. Many of our customers don’t want Amazon and Google in their homes given the growing security concerns surrounding their products, and Josh.AI is an upscale, high-performance option that integrates seamlessly with a wide variety of home automation system, including our brand partner, Crestron.
Josh.AI’s elegant voice control modules feature proprietary natural language processing technology that doesn’t require you to say commands in a specific way in order to take action. It also comes with a simple-to-use app that allows you to program more complex automation functions that you can then activate with your voice. All of Josh.AI’s processing is done locally, so what you do and say in your home stays within those walls and is never used for marketing purposes.
2N Video Intercoms with Crestron Compatibility
This month, Crestron announced a new partnership with 2N, the largest global provider of IP intercoms, making their products fully compliant with Crestron’s Rava SIP Intercom and phone technology. 2N’s video intercom door stations provide reliable access control, and can be customized with a fingerprint reader, Bluetooth module, or touch display for maximum convenience and ease of use.
Easy integration of these door stations with Crestron’s TSW-x60 series of touchscreens enhances the security of your Beverly Hills property, and a new firmware update for Crestron’s Pyng OS 2 operating system instantly recognizes 2N technology without requiring complex programming. You’ll be able to monitor video on up to 16 touchscreens throughout your home, and Quick Actions allow you to unlock electronic locks, turn on exterior lights, and open gates from your Crestron control app.
Seura Smart Mirror
When it comes to smart home technology, it doesn’t get much cooler than the Seura Smart Mirror, an interactive, multifunctional touchscreen hidden behind a reflective surface. You can access millions of widgets and apps through the Smart Mirror, so you don't have to bring your smartphone to the bathroom during your morning and evening routines. It integrates with your whole home automation system so you can adjust lights, play music, change temperature, and view surveillance cameras through the device, which can be activated with both touch and voice control.
