Joe Whitaker Proves Valet Voice Control ‘Concept’ in Dallas Model Home

Realtors are Impressed with Technology That Embeds Amazon Echo Dots into In-Ceiling Speaker Brackets for Invisible Multi-Room Audio Control

Joe Whitaker Proves Valet Voice Control ‘Concept’ in Dallas Model Home

The Thoughtful Home by JWhitaker Designs is working with J. Anthony Custom Homes of Lucas, TX, to integrate Origin Acoustics’ Valet amplifier technology into a new custom home development in the Dallas area. Thoughtful Home owner Joe Whitaker, who has custom integration firms locations in St. Louis, MO, and Dallas, TX, partnered with Origin to create the Valet product line.

The Valet product line, which launched at CEDIA 2017 in September, embeds Amazon Echo Dots into in-ceiling speaker brackets for a nearly invisible voice-controlled multi-room audio distribution system.

Origin’s Dave Donald was on site at the builder’s show home open house last week to help Whitaker demo the system for visitors comprised mostly of area realtors experiencing voice control for the first time. Tony Prutch, owner of J. Anthony Custom Homes, hosted the open house.
