Josh.ai is expanding the presence of artificial intelligence in the home with Xspot, a manufacturer of integration accessories.
As Josh.ai prepares for its first deliveries of Josh Nano—the architectural and design-first microphone—the company is equipping its installers with the tools necessary to seamlessly integrate voice control into smart homes from the ground up.
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 Xspot products with other technologies like sensors, touch screens, speakers and more, Josh.ai dealers can prewire their systems knowing that they will be on target within a 1⁄4-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.
“When we set out to build Josh Nano, it was a product designed for architects, designers, home builders, and homeowners alike,” states 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 there being no user interface to 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.”
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.
“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.” adds 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.”
