Event Monitor for Independent Senior Citizens #ArduinoD16

Via Joep van Wky on hackster.io

The aging population of the world presents enormous financial challenges. There are not enough retirement facilities to cater the needs of the elderly and costs are high. The tendency is that elderly people prefer staying in their own homes for longer. That makes the elderly more independent and happier, but risks are higher when they fall or experience health or security problems. Sometimes that is only discovered hours or days after the incident.

With this non-invasive system daily events can be monitored and recorded and a set of rules can be applied to generate an alarm condition. This includes:

  • opening and closing doors
  • switching lights on or off
  • using electrical appliances
  • movement in various locations in the house
  • temperature measurement
  • panic button
  • fall detection (monitor worn by elderly)

A summary of this information will be sent to the cloud. With the monitor app users with access to the service will be able to monitor various statuses and will be alerted of emergency situations. These users may include family, friends, emergency services and health services.
