New Juno AI™ Delivers Smart Lighting, JBL® Sound System and Amazon Alexa in Single Ceiling Fixture
Atlanta, Jan. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE: AYI) announces today its Juno AI™ smart home downlight will be featured by Amazon in the Alexa Booth at CES 2019, the world’s largest and most influential technology event, held January 8-11 in Las Vegas. Juno AI is an advanced, patent-pending LED downlight that integrates Alexa and a JBL® speaker into a single lighting fixture to create a smart home ecosystem.
Juno AI can be easily installed in the ceiling during new construction or retrofitted into an existing recessed downlight housing, eliminating the clutter of additional counter, tabletop, wall or ceiling devices. In addition to delivering high quality LED lighting and sound, Juno AI integrates Alexa to provide users with hands-free control of smart home devices as well as the ability to ask questions, hear the weather and more.
“This integration of technologies easily and affordably converts any house into a functional, seamless smart home,” says Jeff Spencer, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President and General Manager Residential. “Being located in the ceiling creates a unique advantage enabling Juno AI to deliver not only intelligence through simple voice commands, but also exceptional lighting and sound.”
“As the smart home trend continues to grow, lighting is the one resource that not only exists in every room, but is already hardwired in the ceiling, creating an ideal environment for a centrally located command center that has continuous power,” explained Spencer. “Furthermore, the fixture does not need to be illuminated for the voice service to operate. Juno AI is a simple, elegant solution that streamlines the smart home ecosystem.”
Discover Juno AI at the Amazon Alexa Booth in the Venetian Las Vegas Hotel Ballrooms C-D from January 8-11 or visit Juno AI. Juno AI is expected to be available for purchase in the spring of 2019.
