RALEIGH — One of the Triangle’s fastest-growing startups, K4Connect, recently gifted 150 Amazon Echo Dots to senior residents at The Cardinal at North Hills.

The startup is a mission-centered technology company that creates solutions for older adults and individuals living with disabilities. The gift seemed appropriate as Amazon Alexa deploys K4Connect’s flagship product, K4Community, which the firm says “makes any senior living community a truly Smart Community.” Its underlying, patented Internet-of-Things platform technology is known as Fusion.

Andy Kohlberg, CEO of Kisco Senior Living, speaks to residents at The Cardinal.


Last year, the firm raised another $12 million in venture capital to expand its “smart home” living technology.

Future K4Connect products also include K4Home, which the company says is for older adults living in their own homes, and K4HomeCare, which is designed for care agencies.
