Crestron and Delos Collaborate to Deliver an Indoor Home Environment that Helps Improve Human Health and Well-Being

The Crestron 3-Series Control System integrates with the Delos DARWIN Home Wellness Intelligence Platform to provide a seamless user-experience.

 

Rockleigh, NJ – September 16, 2020Crestron, the global leader in home automation and workplace technology, and Delos™, a wellness real estate and technology firm based in New York, today announce an integration between the Crestron 3-Series® Control System  and the Delos DARWIN™ Home Wellness Intelligence Network aimed at delivering a healthier home through new advanced features on the platform. As of today, Crestron is offering DARWIN to integrators and dealers in North America. A demo of the newly integrated platform can be viewed here.

In response to demand for well-living and design during the COVID-19 pandemic, Crestron and Delos collaborated to provide a seamless experience that transforms the home space through intelligent scenes designed to help support immune health and reduce the transmission of airborne illnesses. The Crestron 3-Series Control System integrates with DARWIN to control lighting, shades, HVAC and audio within the DARWIN platform. Advanced features like control of tunable lighting, circadian cycles and Delos Dawn Simulation work with the Crestron 3-Series Control System to improve the home experience. Users can now access DARWIN via a Crestron TSW touch screen or their mobile device.

“In the midst of the global pandemic, it was critical for Crestron to partner with Delos to deliver advanced technology in the home that promotes healthy living and well-being,” said John Clancy, Vice President, Residential at Crestron. “Crestron recognizes the importance of a healthy home environment, and it turns out technology can play a critical role. In cooperation with Delos, we are now able to improve the lives of many people by offering a more robust wellness ecosystem in the comfort of their home.”

DARWIN is designed to enhance health outcomes in the home and mitigate harmful indoor environmental concerns utilizing Delos’ proprietary wellness algorithms and sensor technologies to create spaces that help reduce stress, improve sleep quality, increase performance and enhance overall well-being. DARWIN intuitively responds to the conditions in the home, purifying air and water, and providing dynamic lighting that helps regulate the body’s natural circadian rhythms. The platform is designed to enhance energy, sleep and overall well-being, while reducing indoor contaminants that negatively affect respiratory, cardiovascular, immune, and cognitive health.

“For more than eight years, Delos has fostered research collaborations with leading medical institutions, including a collaboration with Mayo Clinic on the Well Living Lab, the first human-centered research facility dedicated to researching the indoor environment’s impact on human health,” said Paul Scialla, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Delos. “Through our integration with Crestron, we are now able to automate more advanced features on DARWIN, such as control of lighting, shades, HVAC and audio, to increase energy and improve sleep and overall wellbeing for individuals inside the home.”

The sophisticated sensor technology and intelligence of the DARWIN system, combined with the power and flexibility of a Crestron 3-Series Control System, enables dynamic control of the home environment to help maximize health, comfort, and well-being. By embedding the Delos DARWIN Android application directly into Crestron TSW touch screens, occupants can visualize the air quality in their home from room to room and provide precise control over the Delos experiences that trigger automatically throughout the course of the day.

DARWIN also provides critical information like air quality to Crestron to display on a TSW touch screen or mobile device. When DARWIN detects the air quality event, it communicates it to the Crestron Thermostat through visual and sound alerts to trigger fan speed remediation. This helps expedite air quality events in the home by moving air through the system.

NYC DOE Selects Delos to Provide Air Purification Solutions for NYC Schools

NYC Department of Education Selects Delos to Provide Air Purification Solutions for NYC Schools in Response to COVID-19

[New York, NY — August 31, 2020] — The New York City Department of Education today announced that it has selected Delos, a New York-based wellness real estate and technology company, to provide 10,000 air purification units for New York City public schools. The expedited deployment of this initial tranche will take place within the next two weeks.

The City School District of the City of New York is the largest school system in the United States, with over 1.1 million students taught in more than 1,800 separate schools. The New York City Department of Education will install the 10,000 air purification units prior to the first day of school.

The decision to partner with Delos was made in response to COVID-19, as mounting evidence suggests that small aerosolized particles that may carry SARS-CoV-2 can remain suspended in air and can persist in aerosol form for long periods of time indoors.

Air purification systems are considered by many to be a critical supplementary approach to reducing transmission rates by remediating airborne pollutants and contaminants.  The “Delos powered by Healthway” air purification units capture ultrafine particles and can reduce particles that carry airborne bacteria and viruses.

Traditional filters for mechanical HVAC solutions do not efficiently filter air particles as small as SARS-CoV-2 (.06 to .14 microns) in occupied spaces, where it matters most. The “Delos powered by Healthway” air purification units are portable, standalone units with technology that filters particles as small as .007 microns, at 99.97% efficiency.

“For more than eight years, Delos has fostered research collaborations with leading medical institutions, including a collaboration with Mayo Clinic on the Well Living Lab, the first human-centered research facility dedicated to researching the indoor environment’s impact on human health,” said Paul Scialla, Founder and CEO of Delos and Founder of the International WELL Building Institute. “We’re pleased to bring this research into practice to help the New York City public schools keep students, teachers, staff and the broader community safer.”

Community Investment Strategies To Integrate Wellness Solutions Into Affordable Senior Housing Portfolio

Community Investment Strategies Aligns With Delos To Integrate Wellness Solutions Into Affordable Senior Housing Portfolio To Help Bolster Healthier Environments

1,300 senior housing units in New Jersey will undergo an immediate health-focused facilities improvement upgrade

[New York, NY — July 29, 2020] – Community Investment Strategies (CIS), a fully-integrated real estate organization specializing in multi-family housing including affordable, age-restricted, and assisted living, as well as mixed-use redevelopments, today announced a collaboration with Delos, a wellness real estate and technology company, to integrate Delos’ leading wellness solutions into affordable senior housing units across New Jersey. Through the Delos Facilities Improvement Program, a newly launched program developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, each room will incorporate state-of-the-art technologies to help improve indoor air quality, UVC cleaning protocols and Cleveland Clinic programming for immune system strength.

The program will be provided in 1,300 apartments across New Jersey including 13 Heritage Village senior communities. The Facilities Improvement Program is a derivative of Delos’ popular Stay Well Program, drawing from a subset of Stay Well Program features. Combining cutting-edge research with technological advancements, Stay Well offers evidence-based health and wellness features, amenities and programs in hotels nationwide to help travelers maintain their health and well-being while on the road. The new Delos Facilities Improvement Program was developed in response to COVID-19 to help companies make immediate, cost-effective health and safety upgrades to their properties.

CIS will also enroll its entire portfolio in the WELL Health-Safety Rating program, offered by the International WELL Building Institute, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Delos. The WELL Health-Safety Rating is an evidence-based, third-party verified rating for all facility types, focused on operational policies, maintenance protocols, emergency plans and stakeholder education to address a post-COVID-19 environment now and broader health and safety-related issues into the future. CIS will be the first affordable housing developer in New Jersey to make this portfolio investment.

“CIS has always been committed to enhancing the quality of life of our residents, and the COVID crisis impacted lower income communities in ways many were not been prepared for,” said Christiana Foglio, Founder and CEO of Community Investment Strategies. “Our partnership with Delos has allowed CIS to lead the way for our industry to address the wellness protocols and needs of our most vulnerable populations.”

For over eight years, Delos has fostered research collaborations with leading medical institutions, architects, scientists and thought leaders to introduce evidence-based  programs and solutions into the built environment.  CIS’s commitment will help improve accessibility of these programs and solutions for communities that are most at risk.

“Community Investment Strategies has always worked with a people-first philosophy that put its residents and communities at the center of its work,” said Paul Scialla, Founder and CEO of Delos and Founder of the International WELL Building Institute. “By participating in the Facilities Improvement Program, CIS is acting upon this philosophy to address today’s most pressing concern and continue its leadership in building inclusive, attainable, safe and healthy spaces.”
