HD TV, WiFi, Engagement, Voice

The all-in-one quality solution giving residents the options they want.

FUTURE PROOF SIMPLICITY.

Entertain360℠ is the most innovative entertainment solution in senior living.  This modular platform was created from decades of experience serving thousands of senior living communities.  From a single building to a sprawling campus, there are options for every need and budget.

TV is the most popular pastime and source of local and worldly information. Having the right channels in crystal clear clarity equals resident satisfaction.  Simplifying operations by eliminating cable company logistics of move-ins/move-outs is a timesaver.  With larger TV sizes being the new norm, filling the screen with a quality signal is more important than ever.

Technology for television and Internet is converging and Entertain360℠ leads the way with function and future-proof simplicity. The best part—it can utilize TV wiring infrastructure already in place for HD television, internet and phone service. 

When combined with Engage360℠, the television connects residents with your community, family and everything that matters. A simple, big-button remote offers access to regularly scheduled programming and on-demand content. Keep it Simple. Make it Great.

SINGLE WIRE SOLUTION!

There is no need for multiple devices or remote controls for TV, Internet, Streaming, Resident Engagement or DVR.  The all-in-one Sentrics360℠ Gateway combines every needed function into ONE device using ONE simple, big button remote:  Changing channels, streaming on-demand movies, accessing the Internet and engaging with family and community. The Gateway may be used with a no-set-top-solution for multiple TVs in the same apartment.  There is no other solution that provides this simplified integration for senior living.  No matter the brand or quality of digital television, Entertain360℠ offers what today’s residents want.

REVENUE OPPORTUNITIES

Based on the resident mix, progressive operators often offset a substantial portion of TV programming costs through the resale of Internet, DVR and telephone service.  Whereby TV service on a bulk basis may be provided to all as an amenity, other services may be provided at wholesale for re-billing individually.

FREE TV CHANNELS

Based on local geography, additional local broadcast channels may be available. This includes primary networks for redundancy plus dozens of digital sub-channels. Hundreds of older rerun syndicated TV shows are available from 30-50 years ago, many in black and white. Bring back memories and customize your channel lineup. Best of all – there is no additional monthly programming fee! Ask for a channel listing for what may be available in your area.

SPECIALIZED UNIQUE PROGRAMMING

SeniorTV Radio Network: A highly enjoyable audio service featuring Oldies but Goodies. Utilize for background music with on-screen channel guide or resident information channels.

One-Day University: Award-winning educational guest speaking events specially designed for senior living.

Automated DVD and Video File Server: Scheduled playback of DVD libraries, recorded religious services and special community events.

DVR SERVICE

Recording capability is built into the Sentrics360℠ Gateway used with the Entertain360℠ platform – no other devices or installation required. Instead of residents purchasing and subscribing to a third party DVR service it is easier and more economical from the community. DVR service may be enabled on an individual basis as a new revenue source or activated in bulk as an amenity to all.

SMALL SPACE – FAST INSTALLATION

HD has never been better!

Because it uses the same wiring for television no additional infrastructure is required—it is already in place.  No more Ethernet cabling to pull, no more electrical outlets to add for powering access points.  Password protected Personal Area Networks enable complete privacy for a growing list of connected devices.
