Imagine!’s SmartHomes were created to act as living laboratories for testing and refining technologies that can improve the effectiveness and efficiency of service provision for individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities, and to create new opportunities for independence for those individuals. Imagine! is well into the second phase of its SmartHome project, moving technologies out of the SmartHomes and into other service areas as well as individual and family homes. Imagine!’s SmartHomes guru Greg Wellems, along with tech superstars Alex Andrews and Chris Baumgart, are sharing this presentation with Imagine! employees and others in the field, discussing how we are moving from the SmartHomes to SmartSupports.
