Every day the senior citizen’s activities are monitored with non-invasive methods.
The person’s daily profile is created based on the actions recorded by the home automation system, such as the pulling up and down of blinds, the turning on and off of lights and the use of household appliances.
Moreover, other information is recorded such as weight, footsteps, quality of sleep from fitness sensors (e.g., Fitbit, Withings, Garmin).
All of this data is put together to create a complete profile which describes the individual’s habits and state of health.
Changes are analyzed over time, and notifications of possible discomfort symptoms are sent to family and doctors.
