Senior Living Developers Struggle to Manage Facilities' Continually-Evolving Technology Needs

In the senior care industry, technology has become a key component of overall patient care. However, do you feel like you’re struggling to get your arms around your facilities’ low voltage technology needs? We understand that you have many conflicting priorities where you need to focus your time and resources, such as development, construction and personnel. You likely have many questions about technology...as well as some you didn’t think to ask. That’s where an experienced security integration/life safety partner can truly be a lifesaver.

An intricate speciality, there are specific requirements based on building, fire and other life safety codes. Sometimes they are understood by the architect, but not in every case. In addition, there are other technical requirements that need to be considered, including having all functions in one place.

Adding an additional layer of complexity, development and construction budgets are highly scrutinized and technology always competes with other important aspects of the project. There is a low voltage technology budget per property and there is always question on whether spend is being optimized. Working with the wrong partner can cause cost overruns, problems with products and installation, as well as unreliable technical support.

That’s why it’s critical that you work a company with low voltage safety and security experience, specifically in the senior living industry. The technologies utilized in these facilities are vast and include:

  • Door Access
  • Video Surveillance
  • Intercom
  • Delayed Egress
  • Wander Guard
  • Security
  • Resident Phones
  • Resident Cable
  • Patient Locator
  • Nurse Call System
  • Fire Panel and Smoke Alarm
  • AV
  • Community Channels (Activity, Weather, Marketing, News, etc.)
  • Nurse and Aide Device
  • Network/Fiber
  • Data Cabling
  • Data Closet
  • Guest WiFi
  • Business WiFi
  • Business Phones

There are very few companies that offer all of this capability in-house. In many cases, you are forced to juggle multiple vendors, with different schedules, processes and capabilities, which can be a nightmare for the project managers. Ideally, if you can streamline this service under one highly-experienced vendor, you are far more likely to see quality work completed on time and within budget.

Technology Install Partners, with locations across multiple states, has the expertise to effectively manage this work, addressing the unique requirements of each project, versus taking a cookie-cutter approach. With significant experience in the senior living industry, including an in-depth understanding of local, regional and national requirements, Technology Install Partners has successfully completed more than a dozen projects in this space. Let us serve as your trusted partner and take the worry about low voltage technology off of your very full plate.
