There are many benefits to using Alexa Smart Properties in care homes and senior living locations. However, there is one benefit which is often overlooked and that is the ability to enable existing Alexa Skills for residents.

Alexa Skills are essentially voice apps for Alexa. Over the past eight years brands, charities, developers and publishers have created thousands of Alexa Skills. This cumulative effort must account for millions of pounds and hours of development. Best of all, those skills can be enabled on devices in a matter of seconds.
