4 Things You Need to Know About Josh.ai Voice Control

Josh.ai is a voice-controlled home automation system designed to deliver an effortless living experience to your smart home in Scottsdale, AZ, through the power of intelligent voice control.


The Josh platform connects and controls all the smart technology in your home, giving you the power to orchestrate your entire house using simple and intuitive voice commands. Additionally, Josh allows you to control your home through a user-friendly mobile app or browser-based platform.


Josh is more user-friendly, responsive, and capable than DIY voice control assistants like Siri or Alexa. Keep reading to learn why Josh is one of the most exciting smart home control systems on the market.

Josh Understands Natural Language


One inconvenience with DIY voice assistants like Siri and Alexa is memorizing specific commands to control your smart devices. Josh doesn’t require that hassle. The system uses proprietary natural language processing (NLP) technology and machine learning to understand and obey natural language voice commands.


What does that mean? It means you can talk to Josh like you would a friend or family member. You don’t need to use Josh’s name for every command or specify the room you’re in — Josh knows its own location and will activate devices accordingly. For example, a simple “music on” command will start playing the music in the room you’re occupying. Additionally, Josh can control multiple devices with one voice command. And finally, you can program Josh to recognize multiple names for the same room or device.


Josh Is Constantly Improving


Josh uses AI learning to improve your living experience based on how you interact with your smart home. As you continue to use Josh, the system will recognize and save common patterns. For example, do you always lower the living room shades when the sun sets in the evening? Over time, Josh will take note and begin lowering the shades automatically for you.


Josh Works With Thousands of Smart Devices


There’s no limit to the number of smart devices you can connect through the Josh.ai platform. Josh integrates with thousands of leading manufacturers for audio/video, lighting, shading, climate, security, and surveillance devices so that you can easily take control of your entire home with simple voice commands. Additionally, Josh integrates with pre-existing home systems like Control4, Crestron and Lutron.


Josh works well with popular smart home brands like Sonos speakers, Sony TVs and projectors, Ketra lighting, and Lutron lighting and shading solutions. This year, Lutron and Josh teamed up to release the Josh.ai Ready Wallplate, which combines a Lutron keypad with a Josh voice control device. The new wallplate solution allows you to control your home via voice while still having tactile button control over your favorite scenes and settings.

Josh Protects Your Privacy


Data security and privacy have been priorities for Josh.ai since day one. Josh believes that your personal information should be private and secure, and therefore promises that your data will never be sold to third-party companies for marketing and advertising purposes. Additionally, you have complete control to proactively determine privacy settings and disconnect microphones when you don’t want Josh listening in. Josh.ai is designed to ensure that you always feel secure enough to let down your guard in the safety of your own home.


Josh.ai is a custom home solution designed for professional installation by a certified technology partner. Desert Sound and Security is proud to announce we’re a certified Josh dealer and installer for homes across Arizona.
