The Technological Challenge
Habitations Bordeleau is a seniors’ residence that wants to introduce new technologies, for instance to lower the heating costs, to assist with falls and to reduce the residents’ loneliness.
Evey is a home automation app that makes voice and intelligent control of various connected objects possible (lights, heating, TV, etc.). The start-up wants to test its technology on the market with a potential first client.
The Partnership and Test Objectives
The application has been adapted for the retirement home market to reduce energy costs (by 20% to 30 %) through better use of lighting and heating, and improved comfort and safety of residents through voice control of the device and recognition of the users’ habits.
Outcomes and Impacts
Objectives of energy costs reduction are reached.
Comforting technology for residents and their families.
Development of financial partnerships for the start-up.
