Constructing a smart home is not a task without intricate challenges due to involvement of various tools and technologies. Therefore, this research work presents a concept of context-aware low power intelligent SmartHome (CLPiSmartHome). For CLPiSmartHome, we propose a communication model, which provides a common medium for communication, i.e., same communication language. Moreover, an architecture is also proposed that welcomes all the electronic devices to communicate with each other using a single platform service. The proposed architecture describes the application, analysis and visualization aspects of the CLPiSmartHome. Furthermore, the feasibility and efficiency of the proposed system are implemented on Hadoop single node setup on UBUNTU 14.04 LTS coreTMi5 machine with 3.2 GHz processor and 4 GB memory. Sample medical sensory data sets and fire detection datasets are tested on the proposed system. Finally, the results show that the proposed system architecture efficiently processes, analyzes, and integrates different datasets and triggers actions to provide safety measurements for elderly age people, patients, and others.
