At Eskaton, we believe in exploring innovative ways to enhance the well-being of all our residents. Eskaton Connect is a simple way to promote family, friend and community life connections via a downloadable app. Additional smart home features ensure quality lighting and comfort in each apartment home.
Through our partnership with K4 Connect, five Eskaton Lodges and Villages are now outfitted with smart home lighting, motion sensing and a resident communication portal to increase the connection between residents, family and staff. Recently, Eskaton Village Roseville added voice-first technology with the Alexa Dot. Residents can now control their smart home with their voice.
