Smart home technology is becoming a must-have in senior living.
Thanks to the pairing of individual smart home devices with home systems such as Amazon Echo and Google Home, senior living residents can turn up the thermostat, dim the lights, find out what’s for dinner and get reminders about what programs they’re signed up for, all with the sound of their voice.
