By Tim Mullaney — Kisco Senior Living is bringing voice-enabled smart home technology to its communities, in a bid to gain operational and financial efficiencies while enhancing resident and family satisfaction.

Kisco is making the move through the K4Connect platform, which is able to sync up with Amazon Echo. Linking up these systems allows residents to control elements such as temperature and lighting, as well as sign up for activities and get information such as the day’s menus, simply by asking Alexa.

With this latest launch, all of it is voice-enabled through Alexa. K4 provides the overlay platform and the customization for the Alexa voice-enabled platform.
