Ava announced a collaboration partnership with Josh.ai, the voice control and AI for the custom home. Through this partnership, the AvaRemote now features Josh.ai’s remote interface as well as whole-home voice control. The Ava Remote is powered by a quad-core, 2 GHz processor and is an Android-based touchscreen remote control; claiming to be the world’s first Google Certified remote control.
The Ava Remote facilitates Josh.ai directly via a dedicated button on the Ava Remote home screen. The embedded Josh.ai presence on the Ava Remote ensures access to natural and private voice control, allowing clients to use the power of their voice to reach the desired outcome of their favorite connected devices.
“Professional installers can now serve their clients even better because of our partnership with Josh.ai. Our forces combined is a huge win for them,” said Ava, Inc. CEO and co-founder Raphael Oberholzer. “Having the Ava Remote work with Josh.ai systems gives end-users a dedicated handheld device to complement their Josh.ai-enabled home. This partnership fulfills a major feature that experienced pros have been requesting from Ava and Josh.ai since Ava launched earlier this year.”
“Our dealers frequently request a hand-held remote control to complement their Josh-controlled projects and partnering with Ava offers a purpose-built solution to meet their needs,” said Alex Capecelatro, CEO of Josh.ai. “Every Josh client is now empowered with a dedicated remote to access room-specific media through an intuitive remote UI as well as their entire home with natural voice control. We are proud to enable all of our remote-control partners with access to voice and excited to add Ava Remote as a new way for our customers to interact with Josh.”
