Configurable Zigbee-based Control System for People with Multiple Disabilities in Smart Homes

Configurable Zigbee-Based Control System For People with Multiple Disabilities in Smart Homes


Nowadays, home appliances manufacturers are increasingly relying on wireless sensor network and single chip embedded technologies to build smart environment. Many existing systems are already in the market, however, they were designed without envisioning the need of residents with special needs. This work presents a framework that enables the integration and control of devices within a smart home environment for residents with disabilities. The framework supports the integration of multiple control devices for different residents with different disabilities. Moreover, the work addresses the safety of the users by providing warnings and notifications in case of an emergency. A prototype was designed, implemented and tested.
