Snap One Expands Home Control Experience Through Control4 Partnership With Josh.ai

snap one home experience with Josh.ai and Control4Snap One is expanding the availability of artificial intelligence in the home via a Control4 driver and exclusive distribution agreement with Josh.ai.

Immediately available on the online driver database is an updated Josh.ai driver that is now Control4 Certified and SDDP capable. The driver can now import Control4 advanced lighting scenes and offers deeper integration with music streaming services through Control4. Clients can now enjoy their favorite SiriusXM channels or request any song, artist or album on Tidal from their Control4 system. This adds to Josh.ai’s existing support for Pandora.

Control4 clients will be able to control their connected devices in every room by giving natural voice commands, all without requiring a professional installer to preprogram macros. For example, a user can walk into their kitchen and say, “OK Josh, turn on the lights, open the shades halfway and listen to ‘Start Me Up’ by the Rolling Stones.”

Josh.ai listens to the request, understands the command is coming from the kitchen and automatically identifies which lights and shades to control as well as what content to search for on Tidal. The components required to pass the decoded audio from the Control4 controller to the speakers in the kitchen are activated to rout the audio path.
