K4Labs: Innovation Happens Here
At K4Connect, we are driven by meaningful innovation for older adults. This is what we do behind the doors of K4Labs – rigorously testing devices and systems to ensure we’re only putting the best technology into the hands of our residents. We specialize in enterprise IoT and have influenced the improvement of a number of consumer home automation devices and hardware from leading brands to better meet the needs of older adult users, including Johnson Controls International and Jasco, a manufacturer of GE-branded products.
Over the years, our lab experts have tested nearly 150 devices to determine those that best meet our criteria. Only an average of 15% receive the K4Labs stamp of approval for integration.
Our Guiding Testing Criteria
- Designed for Enterprise Deployment
- Older Adult-Friendly/Compatible
- Device Access & Availability
Jasco & General Electric
Working with Jasco, a manufacturer of GE smart switches & dimmers, we provided feedback on how to improve these products for older adult use. Through resident experiences and in-house testing in K4Labs, K4Connect uncovered improvements on customizable light dimming settings, motion-detected lighting for slower-moving seniors and optimized motion detection that helped avoid false positives, improved battery life and more.
Amazon Early Adopter Program
Our working relationship with the Amazon team has allowed us to improve voice experiences for older adults. Our R&D in voice technology has resulted in incredible value for our residents, including enterprise management Echo Dot devices, native smart home device controls, our customized ‘Call the Front Desk’ feature, and curating specific skills that can be pushed to community-wide Alexa devices. Our engineers are constantly innovating in the voice category with much more on the horizon.
Johnson Controls & KONOse
Johnson Controls is a leading home automation device company. We had the opportunity to collaborate with their team to improve the design and function of the new KONOse smart thermostat specifically for older adult users. Our K4Labs team evaluated the device on function and design, ultimately influencing a new device with an older adult-friendly UI and experience. Older adults are not just deserving of smart devices that work for them, but devices that look great, too.
