Abstract

Due to better lifestyle than before people live longer now. There is a steady increase in number of elderly people around the world and it is expected that the situation is not going to change in future. A smart home monitoring system based on intelligent wireless sensors network has been developed to provide a safe, sound and secured living environment to the elderly people, especially living alone at home. The system consists of optimum number of cognitive wireless sensors that includes current, bed, panic button and water flow sensors has been presented. The cognitive sensors provide information that can be used for monitoring elderly by detecting abnormality pattern in their active daily life. The system will generate early warning message to care giver, when an unforeseen abnormal condition occurs. It will also, analyze the gathered data to determine resident's behavior.
