Somfy and Josh.ai join forces to control motorized blinds

Somfy is proud to partner with Josh.ai to offer its customers contextual and private voice control of their shading solutions. Thanks to this integration, Josh.ai can control the full range of RTS and Zigbee wireless motorization products from Somfy. This includes a wide range of treatments and applications from Roman shades and draperies to awnings, pergolas and roller shutters. Integration not only includes access to shading systems with conversational voice commands, but also automation capabilities based on factors such as time of day and weather conditions to ensure that the environment d a client receives the correct exposure to daylight.

Somfy’s wide range of manufacturer partners offers professional designers, developers and installers unlimited possibilities to offer their customers. Josh.ai’s location awareness and advanced understanding of shade types allows for precise control of window coverings such as sheers and blinds. Natural language commands such as “Ok Josh, close the east blackouts” as well as “Ok Josh, increase the first floor solar shades to 75%” are now possible for Somfy customers.

Somfy’s unique position as an OEM component allows us to do the technical work for the variety of our artisan customers, so they can be sure that their products will be reliably and consistently placed in the controlled environment. With this, all RTS and Zigbee Somfy motorized products will be able to integrate seamlessly into the Josh.ai voice-controlled home.
