abstract

  • In many countries, the number of elderly people has grown due to the increase in the life
    expectancy of the population, many of whom currently live alone and are prone to having accidents
    that they cannot report, especially if they are immobilized. For this reason, we have developed
    a non-intrusive IoT device, which, through multiple integrated sensors, collects information on
    habitual user behavior patterns and uses it to generate unusual behavior rules. These rules are
    used by our SecurHome system to send alert messages to the dependent person"s family members
    or caregivers if their behavior changes abruptly over the course of their daily life. This document
    describes in detail the design and development of the SecurHome system.
