Control4, the automation brand of Snap One, and Josh.ai are taking their recent strategic distribution partnership a step further by offering several new resources to help integrators share the Control4+Josh experience with their customers.
“Josh.ai’s certified Control4 driver enables simple, private, and elegant voice automation in any environment,” said Snap One Chief Product Officer G. Paul Hess. “The combination of Josh.ai’s contextually aware natural language processing with Control4’s intuitive user interfaces and interoperability with tens of thousands of consumer devices offers limitless possibilities for clients. Josh.ai's direct access to Control4 lights, shades, thermostats, audio content, video distribution, scenes, and more provide professionals with the pinnacle in luxury smart home customization.”
These voice and automation brands have also collaborated to create a new client experience video, “Imagine More with Josh.ai and Control4” (available here). The video demonstrates how natural voice control unleashes a Control4 Smart Home, while underscoring Josh.ai’s steadfast commitment to privacy and protecting user data.
“While our certified Control4 driver enables unparalleled smart home experiences today, what is to come with the Josh.ai and Snap One partnership is truly inspiring,” said Josh.ai CEO Alex Capecelatro. “Close collaboration between the industry's leading voice control and automation companies will translate to our partners in the field, who will significantly benefit from even deeper integration as well as cutting edge innovation. Together we are proud to provide professionals with a natural and privacy-focused voice solution that will continue empowering their clients to love the technology they live with.”
In addition to participating in the webinar to educate the Control4 and Josh.ai communities and crafting a client-facing marketing video to drive demand, the companies have also developed key differentiating collateral to support integrators in the field. Control4’s blog takes a deep dive into the features that differentiate a Josh.ai and Control4 system, including compound voice commands, scheduled requests, location awareness, and contextual control. The video and blog are available on the external Control4 website here. Additionally, Control4 integrators are granted exclusive access to an AI Assistant Feature Comparison Matrix that provides clear, visual differentiation between the features added to a Smart Home with the inclusion of Josh.ai, as opposed to the mass market voice assistants.
