AVA, a Swiss-American manufacturer of connected home products announced a collaboration partnership with Josh.ai, the leader in voice control and AI for the custom home. Through this partnership, the AVA Remote now features Josh.ai’s remote interface as well as whole-home voice control. Dealers, integrators, and installers alike are now equipped with a sleek and powerful handheld remote solution.
The AVA Remote is a powerhouse in the palm of your hand. Powered by a quad-core, 2 GHz processor, the AVA Remote is an Android-based touchscreen remote control and the world’s first Google Certified remote control. This certification unlocks the full power of the Google Play Store, enabling the download and use of native Android Apps to provide a game-changing experience for smart home systems and device control directly from the AVA Remote. The AVA Remote is one of the most powerful handheld Android-based devices available for the channel, now made even more powerful thanks to the native integration with Josh.ai.
The best user interfaces are the ones that get users to their desired outcomes quickly and efficiently. AVA and Josh.ai share this core belief. For that reason, 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 seamless access to natural and private voice control, empowering 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.”
The full suite of AVA solutions, designed exclusively for the professional channel, was on display at CEDIA Expo 2022 in booth #18089.
