AUDIO-ONE, who is a leading Crestron Installation and Programming firm serving Miami, South Florida and the Los Angeles market, had a chance to discuss on platforms using Crestron as the backbone in creating new home automation interfaces. Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder of the social networking company, Facebook, is once again gaining attention in one of the world's fastest growing industries: Home Automation. Known as Jarvis, this iPhone app has been referred to as Mark's "custom-made artificially intelligent assistant." Similar to Amazon's Alexa, Jarvis interfaces with Messenger, according to Zuckergerg's Fackbook blog post. In addition to connecting smart devices and phones around the home, Javris can use Facebooks' visual face detection to determine intelligent tasks such as notifications when the baby is awake, or who is ringing the doorbell. To learn more about Jarvis and Crestron technologies, read on.
Zuckerberg's Jarvis is Built Upon Crestron's Smart Home Technology
AUDIO-ONE, with it's showroom located in Sunny Isles and Fort Lauderdale, FL, along with installation crews and services in Los Angeles, CA, is one of Crestron's top authorized leading custom installation companies, which for almost 2 decades has led the way to building some of the smartest homes in the world. With over 8 CEDIA Industry Awards for best systems and installation company, AUDIO-ONE's projects span from South Florida, to California, the North East coast to as far away as Ghana Africa, with clients flying Audio One's teams over the world.
What is interesting to note is that Jarvis is actually built on top of Crestron's elite smart home technology. Crestron has been leading the way in luxury custom smart home automation for many years, and is definitely compared as being the "ultimate" provider of home automation for homes of "the 1%" most wealthy persons in the world. Crestron home automation systems can cost thousands to over millions of dollars and allow people to control the majority of all electronic systems in the home from anywhere in the world with internet access including lighting, motorized shades, alarm, access control, home theater, audio, video, sound system, HVAC and so much more.
Clancy, Crestron's president of residential systems, said Crestron would typically be able to power many of Jarvis' features through its own apps. But Crestron, in this particular project, created an API that would let Zuckerberg build his own "front end" in his preferred programming language, Python.
