Josh.ai and Xspot Partner to Provide Integrators with Voice Control Options for Every Room

Josh.ai looks to continue to expand the presence of artificial intelligence in the home thanks to its new partnership with Xspot, an industry leader in builder infrastructure. As Josh.ai prepares for its first deliveries of Josh Nano, the company’s architectural and design-first microphone, the company is equipping its installers with the tools necessary to integrate voice control into smart homes from the ground up.

According to the company, the pre-wire flexibility offered by Xspot for builders ensures that voice control will be a foundational piece of the smart home going forward. Thanks to the accuracy of Xspot products with other technologies like sensors, touch screens, speakers and more, Josh.ai dealers can confidently prewire their systems knowing that they will be on target within a ¼-inch or less. For clients looking to install Josh Nano or Josh Micro in their homes, they will now be able to dictate exactly where they want private, intuitive, and magical user experiences without compromising on any interior design elements.

Josh Nano has been purpose-built to integrate into its surroundings and now with Xspot, it will seamlessly become part of the background of the world’s most luxurious homes. Measuring only 0.1 inches thin and 1.6 inches in diameter, Josh Nano is installed flush on a wall for an impeccably discreet voice experience. Josh Nano also can be covered with a square or circular paintable cover, which practically makes it invisible for discerning clientele.

“When we set out to build Josh Nano, it was a product designed for architects, designers, home builders, and homeowners alike,” says Alex Capecelatro, CEO of Josh.ai.

““In addition to being in the most technologically advanced homes in the world, we also want Josh.ai to be in the most elegant and delightful environments imaginable. Our goal is to extend the concept of voice control and not needing a manual user interface. Xspot empowers our installers to place Josh Nano or Josh Micro anywhere in a room where it makes sense while preserving the home’s aesthetic integrity, which gets us one step closer to providing a truly integrated smart home experience.”

“I came up with Xspot out of the need to better control projects when I was an integrator. Hoping some other trade had the same understanding of our work and would always do exactly what was needed for us to find our wires later, wasn’t going to happen, it’s not their job,” says Mark Sipe, inventor of Xspot Products. “After wiring a large home for one of the first Microsoft employees and having 37 locations buried or moved, I started to design a solution. It had to be easier, faster and more accurate, Xspot is all of these. Being recognized as a partner by Josh.ai is an honor, given their expertise and experience.”

Josh.ai is proud to make Xspot products available to all of its dealers as an authorized reseller. To learn more about installing Xspot solutions as well as get a first look at the setup flows for Josh Nano and Core, join the Josh.ai webinar this Friday, June 4th at 1pm ET.
