Smart Home Innovation
Creating livable environments that are accessible to people of all abilities is the goal of Eskaton’s smart home automation Eskaton partnered with K4 Connect to integrate smart sensor technology into residential living apartments using every day devices such as lights and thermostats. Not only are the enhancements energy efficient but they provide residents with the control to customize their living experience. Features include: adjusting the brightness of lights, setting their perfect temperature on their thermostat and set the lights to day or night mode. Eskaton deploys Amazon Alexa in assisted living.
Eskaton Longevity Explorers shared the desire for a community APP. Their vision for the APP was to provide easy access to community information and their peers. Eskaton partnered with K4 Connect to offer Eskaton Connect, a community app that links residents to family, friends and community life. The features of the app include: a directory with resident photos, community photos, menu, events and the ability to connect with family members. Eskaton Connect also provides a family app that makes it simple to connect with family living at Eskaton, check the menu and view the events.
Every person wants control over their environment and the most natural way of interacting is through voice. Creating a fully livable environment must include a voice assistant to ensure all persons’ regardless of physical abilities are empowered to interact with their home. Eskaton partnered with K4 Connect to make voice assistance a reality to residents living at Eskaton Village Roseville. They are the first assisted living community to fully deploy Alexa. Residents now can use their voice to adjust their lights and thermostat, call the front desk, ask for the day’s events and menu.
