Josh.ai continues expanding the power of artificial intelligence in the home with its support of Autonomic, an industry leader in custom audio products. Integration with eSeries MMS streamers, as well as Autonomic’s full line of multi-room amplifiers, enables Josh.ai’s proprietary voice automation and intuitively designed app to provide convenient music access throughout a user’s living spaces.
Autonomic clients are now empowered with natural and secure voice commands, like: “Ok Josh, draw the west sheers, listen to Yo-Yo Ma in the den and dining room, and set the volume to 25%.”
The integration provides feature parity across Josh.ai’s app and voice interfaces for content search, zone grouping, and transport control. Users will be able to search for their favorite songs, artists, albums, and playlists across supported streaming services.
With the release of Mirage OS 7.0, Apple Music, Tidal, Spotify, SiriusXM, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn are all available for Autonomic clients to enjoy in high resolution audio. Autonomic local music content that is saved as favorites or playlists will also be accessible at launch.
Once Josh.ai is deployed, each Autonomic device is automatically detected on the network, along with all compatible streaming services that are signed into the local Autonomic system.
As part of the Josh.ai AV Setup workflow, Autonomic streamers and amplifiers are then configurable as input sources and output zones respectively throughout the home. Beyond native control in a standalone Autonomic multi-room audio system, Josh.ai also can access Autonomic streamers when routed through Crestron SIMPL, Crestron Home, and Control4 audio distribution.
In addition to the efficiency of contextual voice control, Autonomic partners will be comforted by Josh.ai’s strong stance as a privacy-focused voice assistant purpose-built for professionally installed smart home systems. Clients will benefit from peace-of-mind knowing that Josh.ai is committed to providing a voice experience without sharing or selling user data for marketing purposes.
Josh.ai and Autonomic dealers interested in learning more can join a deep dive webinar on the integration this Friday, May 20 at 1pm EST / 10am PST.
