Presently, most smart homes protocols are limited to controlled activities and environments for Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) of the elderly as well as convalescent patients. Mr Ghayvat’s research involved developing a wellness protocol that forecasts the wellness of any individual living in an AAL environment and generates decision-making information for the caregiver. He designed and developed the new protocol to suit the smart home system and found it reliable, efficient, flexible, and economical for wireless sensor networks based on AAL. His research findings suggest a wellness based smart home monitoring system, the application of automation with integral systems of accommodation facilities, could effectively boost and progress the everyday life of an occupant.
