Josh.ai continues expanding the power of artificial intelligence in the home through a collaboration with AVPro Edge, an industry leader in audio and video distribution. Integration with AVPro Edge enables the convenience of Josh.ai’s natural voice control and privacy-focused approach to home automation to seamlessly fit into the design of any project.
As part of the Josh.ai Distributed AV workflow, AVPro Edge amplifiers and switches will auto-populate the web portal for configuration. Integrators are then able to efficiently assign input sources and output zones for whole-home media control. Josh.ai’s AVPro Edge support offers a rich feature-set of functionality allowing users to switch inputs, control volume levels, distribute a single source to play across multiple zones, and route multiple sources across multiple zones verbally via Josh Micro or manually through the intuitive Josh.ai app.
Clients will experience an unmatched level of freedom when using voice to request their desired content wherever they want it. For example, “OK Josh, dim the lights on the first floor, listen to Thriller by Michael Jackson in the kitchen, and watch Stranger Things in the living room.” Josh.ai handles the content search using its available streaming services and applicable sources, activates the AVPro Edge gear, routes the requested content to each zone, and sets the mood.
“We’re excited to align with AVPro Edge as a fellow innovator in our industry,” said Alex Capecelatro, CEO of Josh.ai in a statement. “Our device integrations and complementary products are extremely important as we recommend solutions for luxury clients who want performance as well as reliability. Our goal with Josh.ai is to deliver a magical experience, and partnering with AVPro Edge is another step towards that vision.”
“AVPro Edge has a laser focus on pushing technology forward, and partnering up with Josh.ai was a natural step in our philosophy” said Jeff Murray, CEO of AVPro Edge in a statement. “Josh.ai is innovating in the professional audio video space, thinking beyond traditional methods with an emphasis on ease-of-use and security. I find this to be a smart direction and am excited to deliver ultra-stable, high bandwidth video distribution solutions to integrators that are ready to push technology alongside both AVPro Edge and Josh.ai.”
