Why Josh.ai Is Better Than Other Voice Assistants

Are you frustrated with voice assistants that can’t understand what you’re saying? “Sorry, I didn’t get that,” is a frequent response from Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri. Once hailed as the future of smart homes, voice controllers have struggled to perform and are often more of a nuisance than a help for homeowners. That is, until Josh.ai. 

Josh.ai is a voice control system that understands natural language better than any other AI assistant—while protecting your privacy better, too. Josh is a relative newcomer in the voice control world, but it outperforms the biggest names in every aspect.

When to Hire a Professional for Smart Lighting Control

Off-the-Shelf Smart Bulbs May Be Convenient, But Are You Getting the Full Lighting Experience?

When to Hire a Professional for Smart Lighting Control

As we head into darker, shorter days here in New York, NY, many people are seeking more ways to bring light into their homes. Smart lighting control lets users customize the color temperature and brightness of their lighting fixtures, automating bulbs to mimic the sunrise and sunset, and even control when lights are on to save energy. 

There are countless benefits to smart lighting, but there’s one question that remains unclear for many homeowners: should I install this myself or hire a professional? 

Online and in stores, you’ll find DIY off-the-shelf smart bulbs that connect to your phone over Wi-Fi. In some cases, that’s a fine option. But if you want a fully integrated home with more customization and automation options, a professional smart lighting installation is your best bet. 

If you’re unsure what you really need for your New York home, we share below what your expectations can be for both a DIY and professional lighting system.

Smart Lighting Control: Improve Your Home’s Wellness & Safety

In the past year, we’ve seen smart lighting attract more and more New Yorkers—perhaps due to abundant time spent at home. If you’ve dipped into smart lighting control at all, then you’ve seen how addicting it is. Once you are able to customize the color and brightness of one lightbulb, you’ll want your entire home’s lights to be tunable, too. 

With a smart lighting system, you can adjust your lightsinstantly from a smartphone app or create a schedule for LEDs to turn on and shift colors automatically. The high-definition color palette lets you drench your home in color, pinpointing the exact shade you want. Plus, motion sensors can help control when lights are on, illuminating rooms only when you need. 

But maybe you’re wondering, ‘Why would I use that? My regular lightbulbs are fine!’ That’s a common question we hear, and we understand the confusion. Read on to see when tunable smart lightingis not only funbut also can improve your health and safety in your New York, NY, home.
