Snap One Debuts Control4 & Josh.ai Consumer Campaign
With Josh.ai products now available exclusively to Control4 dealers via Snap One, integrators and clients can make their smart homes truly intelligent with seamlessly integrated solutions.
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA, February 2, 2022 – Control4, the automation brand of Snap One, and Josh.ai are taking their recent strategic distribution partnership a step further by offering several new resources to help integrators share the Control4+Josh experience with their customers.
To dive into the details on the consumer campaign and explore the future of voice control, the companies will participate in a special webinar panel hosted by CE Pro Chief Content Officer Jason Knott on February 16th at 12:00 PM ET. Join Josh.ai CEO Alex Capecelatro, Snap One Chief Product Officer GPaul Hess, and Future Automation & Design President Patrick Coleman as they highlight the integration while sharing their plans to evolve the industry going forward. Register for the webinar here.
These industry leading voice and automation brands have also collaborated to create a new client experience video, “Imagine More with Josh.ai and Control4” (available here). The video demonstrates how natural voice control unleashes a Control4 Smart Home, while underscoring Josh.ai’s steadfast commitment to privacy and protecting user data. All current Control4 clients and prospective smart home adopters can now achieve their goals through the combination of these transformative technologies.
In addition to participating in the webinar to educate the Control4 and Josh.ai communities and crafting a client-facing marketing video to drive demand, the companies have also developed key differentiating collateral to support integrators in the field. Control4’s blog takes a deep dive into the elegant features that differentiate a Josh.ai and Control4 system, including compound voice commands, scheduled requests, location awareness, and contextual control. The video and blog are available on the external Control4 website here. Additionally, Control4 integrators are granted exclusive access to an AI Assistant Feature Comparison Matrix that provides clear, visual differentiation between the features added to a Smart Home with the inclusion of Josh.ai, as opposed to the mass market voice assistants.
Below are a few reviews on this game changing partnership:
"To experience Josh.ai and Control4 together has been exactly what we and our clients have been dreaming of. Easy to use, seamless to integrate, smart home automation that brings natural voice control, beautiful UI, powerful AI and privacy to the smart home."

"Nothing has come close to what this partnership brought to the table. Integrating Josh.ai and Control4 in our projects, we are able to offer the most seamless, easy to use, and adaptable luxury smart home systems to our clients. In addition to the natural language processing that Josh.ai offers our clients to interface with, we are able to customize our programming and unlock countless possibilities to offer practically any personalized solution that our clients can come up with!"

"Demonstrating Josh.ai and Control4 in our Certified Showroom always elicits a "Wow!" response. However, the real impact is felt when a client gets to experience the system in their own home. Simply asking for any media content, interacting with lighting or security, and even pulling up camera feeds without reaching for a remote or mobile app quickly becomes a necessity. Clients continuously want to learn more about Josh.ai and what is capable with their Control4 system."
Rob Martin, Owner

Josh.ai's direct access to Control4 lights, shades, thermostats, audio content, video distribution, scenes, and more provide professionals with the pinnacle in luxury smart home customization.”
GPaul Hess, Chief Product Officer
