ABOUT LADD

Living Arrangements for the Developmentally Disabled
(LADD) is a non-profit founded in 1975 with a mission to
upgrade lives of the people living with disabilities.

THE CHALLENGE

LADD was seeking a solution that enabled young adults with developmental issues to live independently. Current solutions in the market were cumbersome and expensive, so Cinnova stepped in and invested several years of probono planning to build a comprehensive solution.

RESULTS

Early release versions of the solution have been deployed for user testing with hundreds of young adult users who are comfortable utilizing smart devices to maneuver their living requirements. Cinnova developed dashboards reduce the requirements for on-site support and provide immediate communication to the users.

PROJECT EXPANSION

Building on the success of the initial phase of the smart home solution, LADD and Cinnova have now embarked on Phase-2 of the Smart Living project that will include complete plug and play device integration and a lower cost hardware requirement along with complete IP ownership. States across the US have lined up to partner with LADD to roll out the solution in their markets.

UNITED NATIONS HONORS LADD FOR SMART LIVING SYSTEM

The Smart Living solution won praise from the UN’s Zero Project in 2023
