Enseo, a senior living technology service provider, today announced partnering with senior living voice hub proptech Volara, according to a press release.
The company says the integration will enable community residents to use voice commands to control in-room entertainment suites and smart apartment controls, which it says is an important tool for fall prevention in senior living communities.
Enseo says that through its recently announced CORE platform, residents are able to use natural voice commands to manage this experience and eliminate the need to unnecessarily stand or move around their unit. It says existing customers who enable Volara Voice Controls can expect the same data and reporting streams, including real-time data updates, remote monitoring and management.
“We are thrilled to partner with Volara to offer voice-enabled controls to our residents to address the unique challenges and growing technical demands in the senior living space,” stated Margaret DeVinney, Senior Living Strategist at Enseo, in the release.
“When developing solutions for senior living communities, we strive to implement features to keep residents safe while creating a more familiar, easy to use and convenient experience,” she said.
Volara says that as part of the partnership, it will also provide voice-based conversation management software and its secure integration hub to protect communities proprietary data from disclosure to the major natural language processing platforms.

“We are excited to work with Enseo to bring voice control to their senior living customers. By combining voice with TV technologies and apartment controls technologies, together we are changing the resident experience with solutions that increase convenience and safety,” said David Berger, Volara CEO.
The partnerships follows the announcement of CORE by Enseo, which the company says is an upgrade of its Enseo Entertainment Experience, E3. In addition to its entertainment suite, the platform also provides managed WiFi, smart apartment room controls, safety and staff support controls.
Based in Plano, Texas, Enseo currently serves more than 85 million users annually through its IoT, smart room automation and energy management technology.
