Las Vegas, Jan. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE: AYI) announces today the Juno AI™ smart home downlight is now compatible with SmartThings, an industry leader for IoT technology and home connectivity. Debuting the connectivity at CES 2020, Juno AI will be on display at the SmartThings partner wall, located within Samsung’s booth #1500. Juno AI is an advanced, patent-pending LED downlight that integrates advanced technologies, and now SmartThings intelligence, into a single ceiling light fixture, enabling a seamless, smart home ecosystem.

SmartThings reaches more than 50 million consumers, weaving connected living technology into more than 5,000 devices including mobile phones, appliances, and TVs to make everyday life easier. Juno AI lighting fixtures are the first products from Acuity Brands to integrate into the SmartThings ecosystem.

The Juno AI lighting portfolio integrates five advanced technologies, including SmartThings connectivity, Alexa voice service, high performance JBL® speakers, sophisticated lighting controls and state-of-the-art LED illumination. From dimming the lights to setting the mood with different color temperatures, the Juno AI speaker lights are seamlessly controlled via voice or the Juno AI, SmartThings or Alexa apps.

“Juno AI offers total control for today’s modern smart home, and by joining the SmartThings ecosystem, we’re pleased to continue to expand the range of platforms with which Juno AI is compatible,” said Jeff Spencer, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President and General Manager of Smart and Connected Devices. “Juno AI blends seamlessly into the home allowing consumers to easily communicate with advanced smart home applications. For privacy, the Alexa feature can be easily muted, or it can be turned off altogether by simply switching off the wall light switch.”
