Abstract

In modern civilization people live longer than before and it is expected that this increased longevity will be enjoyed in a safe, sound and secured living environment. But with increased of age mental abilities are reduced and there is a necessity of caregiver which may interfere with their privacy. In this research work, we target towards the development of a wireless sensors based home monitoring system especially for elder people. The current system is based on sensors which detect use of electrical appliances whether they are connected to electrical mains. But it has been realized to there is a requirement of a few more sensors to making a smart home monitoring system. This paper has reported the development of a bed-sensor which forms one sensor of the home monitoring system.
