A luxurious home experience begins with smart home automation. But it doesn’t end there! Even though it’s convenient and seamless to take command of your home’s technologies with the swipe of an icon, you may be surprised that there’s an even more seamless way to do it. For many years, Lutron has designed motorized shades and smart lighting that add a level of automation luxury for homeowners.
Recently, Lutron teamed up with Josh.ai – a voice control automation company – to take the in-home experience to the next level. Now, you can control every connected system in your home just by speaking to it! Keep reading to learn more about Josh.ai and how the company’s partnership with Lutron changes the way you interact with your home in Geyserville, CA.

Don’t get us wrong – controlling your home via a smart home tablet or smartphone app is still “futuristic.” Most homeowners only dream of living in a home like that. And yet, even for smart homeowners, they aren’t truly experiencing the ultimate in automation. Josh.ai changes everything! Much like Google Assistant or Alexa, Josh obeys your verbal commands and communicates with you as you interact with your home.
But Josh is special. Unlike most voice assistants, it uses natural language processing technology to learn how you speak. So, you don’t have to talk like a robot for it to understand you! Just talk naturally, and Josh follows your instructions. Do you want to turn on the bedroom lights? Say, “Hey Josh, turn up the lights to half level. Also, start playing my morning playlist.” Then, the lights illuminate, and your favorite songs stream through your in-room speaker system. Do the same thing in your home theater: control the lights, shades, and AV system.
Like your existing smart home system, you can even program a scene, but it’s not complicated at all. In fact, Josh learns what you like. If you’re going away for the day and you provide instructions to Josh, such as lowering the shades and adjusting the lights to a certain level, Josh remembers the next time you leave. Say, “Ok Josh, I’m leaving.” Then, it sets those technologies to the same levels.
Josh controls all your Lutron technologies too. For instance, the Josh Ready Wallplate (pictured above) not only allows you to control a variety of home technologies with your voice, but it also maintains tactile control – if you’re not in a talkative mood. Push a pre-programmed “Cook” button on the wall keypad, and Josh and Lutron set the stage for the perfect cooking environment – setting the lights, music, and other smart technologies to your settings.
