ByDesign Vision & Sound Marketing Adds Josh.ai Voice Control Platform to its Lineup

AI-driven voice control platform offers privacy, accessibility, and simplicity, ideally suited for the residential custom integration market

Long Beach, CA (March 18, 2019) — ByDesign Vision & Sound Marketing (VSM), a leading independent manufacturers’ representative in the audio/video and lighting industry, has expanded its scope to include home automation and control solutions with the recent addition of the Josh.ai platform to its line of best-in-class products. Dealers who undergo training of Josh.ai configuration and installation provided by ByDesign VSM will then be able to offer the voice control solution to their clients. The control software and complementary showroom or demo hardware are available immediately to trained and qualified dealers. 

“Since the inception of ByDesign, we’ve considered it of paramount importance to stay on the leading edge of home technology, and the recent addition of Josh.ai helps us do just that — which allows us to maintain our reputation as a rep firm that offers the most innovative solutions available,” says ByDesign VSM founder Joaquin Rivera. “Through its proprietary Natural Language Processing technology, ability for end-users to launch commands through voice or an app, advanced security and privacy features, and seamless smart home integration, Josh.ai offers a completely new—and far better—approach to voice control in the smart home. The timing couldn’t be better for us to introduce this line to integrators in our territories.”

One of the biggest differentiators of Josh.ai is its ability to protect the privacy of its users. Data shared by end-users with the platform remains private, never shared for marketing purposes or third-party advertisements. The information Josh.ai collects is only used to make the system smarter and more intuitive.

Another hallmark is its ability to understand compound commands and nicknames for products and scenes, and learn about the home environment over time. The time of day and the room in which a command is issued are all analyzed by the Josh.ai software to significantly improve reliability and accuracy. 

Adds Alex Capecelatro, Josh.ai CEO, “We’ve been diligent about partnering with the right integrators over the years as we’ve grown and expanded our offering, and now that ByDesign VSM is carrying Josh.ai we will be able to engage with the most exceptional home systems professionals in the ByDesign territory of Northern and Southern California, and Hawaii. ByDesign VSM’s commitment to growing the marketplace mirrors ours, which makes this relationship a win-win for both parties.”

Offering an app-based control interface that’s designed specifically for the custom installation market, Josh.ai differs from mass-market voice control solutions, giving dealers a way to differentiate and expand their business.

By Design Vision & Sound Bridges Tech And Design Gap

By Design Vision & Sound Bridges Tech And Design Gap

 

Serving as a liaison between integrators and designers, rep ByDesign Vision & Sound offers unique services that mesh a home’s technology and architecture

Durability, profitability and support. These are the three pillars on which ByDesign Vision & Sound Marketing (VSM) bases its unique business model. It’s a philosophy that resonates not only with home systems integrators who buy best-in-class products from this well-established manufacturer’s rep firm, but also with high-profile architects and interior designers. “We have the word ‘Design’ in our company name for a reason,” says company founder Joaquin Rivera. “Design is at the heart of everything we do. Every product line we carry and every service program we provide revolves around design. We give our dealers the tools they need to deliver real value to the design community and establish long-lasting, meaningful relationships for greater success.”

ByDesign VSM helps fosters dealer/designer relationships in ways beyond offering focused product lines that cater to creativity of design. For dealers who have limited resources to create their own home theater and lighting designs, ByDesign will do it for them, often at no charge. “Being able to present architects and designers with professional, comprehensive CAD drawings, sightlines, and renderings puts the dealer in a completely different light,” says Rivera. “No longer is the dealer perceived as an adversary but as an advocate of good design.” Moreover, it fosters closer collaboration between the two professionals and helps ensure cohesion between a project’s technology and design.

ByDesign VSM reinforces its design services by facilitating communications between the dealer and designer. “Our in-house designers have the knowledge and training to speak the same language as the designers with whom our dealers are collaborating,” Rivera explains. “We can bridge the communications gap that sometimes exists to ensure a smooth, successful working relationship, and that the technology and design mesh well together.”

To inspire the design community to embrace technology as a valuable asset for their projects and clientele, ByDesign VSM hosts classes and presentations at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, Calif.
