Josh.ai & Wall-Smart Intro Josh Micro Flush Mounts
Home control system company Josh.ai has partnered with flush-mount solutions provider Wall-Smart to design mounting systems for new-construction and retrofit applications that offer integrators the flexibility to blend Josh Micro voice control into any environment at any stage or timeline of the project, while preserving the interior décor aesthetic.
Wall-Smart’s mounts now factor in Josh.ai’s various voice and capacitive touch performance requirements. Custom-built around Josh Micro’s spherical structure, audio grills were arranged to allow for a maximal sound path while minimizing the visual impact when positioned in the wall. Thermal operating thresholds along with peripheral POE and Wi-Fi adapters were also taken into consideration when determining the optimal orientation of Josh Micro in each mount.
The new-construction mount rests evenly with the wall and includes a bezel that can be painted with the wall finish. For simpler installation without the need for construction, the retrofit mounts provide a nearly-flush-mounted option. Similar to other Wall-Smart offerings, custom audio grill details and color finishes are available upon request for every mount variation.
With Josh Micro, users are be able to give natural voice commands, for example, like, “OK Josh, dim the lights to 50 percent, raise the shades on the first floor, and listen to Chopin everywhere.”
“The look and feel of the Josh.ai experience is extremely important as we align ourselves with the design, architecture and builder communities. Our relationship with Wall-Smart is another step towards blending technology into a truly connected home,” said Alex Capecelatro, CEO of Josh.ai, in the announcement statement.
