Santa unpacked a bag full of smart technology at The Cardinal at North Hills’ recent holiday party.

K4Connect CEO Scott Moody, dressed as the legendary figure, passed out Echo Dot devices Dec. 19 to residents of the Raleigh, NC, Kisco Senior Living life plan community as part of its expanded partnership with the operator.

The devices use Amazon Alexa, with K4Connect’s flagship product, K4Community, to provide voice-first smart home experiences for residents.
