Akron’s SeniorTV, a provider of affordable television entertainment, community-specific programming, and Internet and WiFi solutions for senior living communities, has been acquired by Periscope Equity-backed Sentrics, a provider of integrated technology platforms for senior living facilities.

“For too long, seniors have only been able to use their TVs for passive entertainment,” Sentrics CEO Darin LeGrange said in a statement. “By integrating SeniorTV into our existing multifaceted solution, we will transform the TV into something that empowers senior residents to step beyond mere entertainment and engage them, their families and the community through easy-to-use, two-way interaction.”

SeniorTV Founder Rick Briggs will remain as president and will have an expanded role leading marketing efforts for Sentrics as executive vice president and chief marketing officer.

Periscope Equity is a Chicago-based private equity firm focused on investments in technology-enabled business services companies across a number of verticals.
