Alexa Smart Properties for Senior Living elevates residents’ quality of life in their communities

What is Alexa Smart Properties for Senior Living?

Alexa Smart Properties provides device fleet management to provide Alexa capabilities at scale. Residents can use Alexa to easily access information and communicate, helping them to lead more independent and socially engaged lives. At the same time, Alexa enables staff to focus on high-impact areas by creating greater efficiencies with resource-consuming activities such as, check-ins, announcements, and maintenance service requests. Alexa technology streamlines associates’ workflows and provides more quality time for resident care.

Security and Privacy features

Alexa Smart Properties for Senior Living

Alexa Smart Properties was built with resident and community privacy in mind. We have built in multiple layers of privacy protections:
  • Wake word: The device will not stream audio to the cloud until it detects the wake word “Alexa.”

  • Microphone controls: Using Alexa is optional. Echo devices are equipped with a microphone off button. When the button is pressed, the microphones are electronically disconnected and a dedicated red light is illuminated. When the microphones are turned off, the device cannot stream audio to the cloud, even when you say the wake word.

  • Indicator: When Echo devices detect the wake word or when the Action button available on some Echo devices is pressed to activate Alexa, a visual indicator appears on the device to indicate that the device streaming your request to the cloud. For instance, a light ring on the Echo will turn blue.

  • Privacy: Voice recordings are not saved. Amazon handles any personal information it receives through Alexa in accordance with Amazon’s Privacy Notice (www.amazon.co.uk/privacy)
