Activity recognition is a popular research area with a number of applications, particularly in the smart home environment. The unique features of smart home sensors have challenged traditional data analysis methods. However, the recognition of anomalous activities is still immature in the smart home when compared with other domains such as computer security, manufacturing defect detection, medical image processing, etc. This chapter reviews smart home’s dense sensing approaches, an extensive review from sensors, data, analysis, algorithms, prompting reminder system, to the recent development of anomaly activity detection.
