LAS VEGAS – January 21, 2020 --  Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE: AYI) announces that the Juno AI™ smart home downlight is now compatible with SmartThings, an industry leader for IoT technology and home connectivity. Juno AI is an advanced, patent-pending LED downlight that integrates five advanced technologies, including SmartThings intelligence, Alexa voice service, high performance JBL® speakers, sophisticated lighting controls and state-of-the-art LED illumination into a single ceiling light fixture, enabling a seamless, smart home ecosystem. 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.

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. Both companies will collaborate to develop and innovate additional smart home lighting solutions through the Acuity Design Studio, which encompasses industrial design, engineering and portfolio management resources.

“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. “This expansion with technology will also continue to provide builders and contractors with an easy solution to deliver one advanced smart home application with simple installation.”
