Smart Independent Living
Independent living for those who are disabled or aging in place using Smart Home Technology
Smart Homes are defined as homes that have heating/air conditioning, lighting, security, access control, telephone, entertainment, irrigation and security systems connected to a PC with an always-on Internet connection and software that enables the operation of all systems using the PC. The PC is programmed to automatically operate some systems by time or events or manually as desired. Since the systems in a smart home are connected to a PC and the PC is connected to the Internet, the home can be controlled and monitored from any location in the world by anyone with authorized access.
