Juno AI connects to any Alexa-enabled smart home devices – lawn sprinklers, vacuums, security cameras, ambient lighting and much more – through simple voice commands.

“Juno AI offers total control for today’s modern smart home, from lighting, sound, voice, privacy and more,” said Jeff Spencer, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President and General Manager of Smart and Connected Devices. “Not only is Juno AI blending seamlessly into the home, it allows consumers to easily program advanced smart home applications all while controlling privacy by muting or turning it off completely with the flick of a switch. We are proud to receive this significant industry recognition and look forward to driving further innovation in the smart lighting and smart home market.”
