ATLANTA – November 19, 2019Acuity Brands, Inc.

The patent-pending Juno AI downlight with Alexa built-in can order pizza, play music and playlists, and control other Juno AI downlighting in and around the home – including dimming the lights to set the mood and adjusting color temperature from warm to cool.

Juno AI weaves smart home automation and voice-assistance into our everyday activities.”
