As the trend of home automation is increasing and people are very much interested in it, the need to make it more required and efficient. As old and disabled people are an important part of our society, we can’t just sit around and enjoy the latest technology and let them alone in their lives. There has been an emphasis on making systems that are suited for them. There are slight changes for them in automation systems. These systems should be made especially for these people as normal people can live on their own. We, as human beings, should be responsible for making their lives easy, safe and comfortable.

Microsoft Corporation’s C.E.O. Steve Ballmer said, “The number one benefit of technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn’t think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential”. Homes, old homes and special-care centers need to install smart home automation technology to provide them with safety, security, entertainment and other facilities. Automation systems for old people can be embedded health systems or private health networks. These systems are effective in order to maintain their independency and safety.

Smart homes allow these people to stay in home rather than walking around in healthcare facilities, and as a result making them feel confident, independent and determined. Other family members and guardians can take care of them and watch over them from their offices far away via internet connection. These systems vary from simple alarms, reminders and alerts to sophisticated computer controlled network interfaces. Smart home security integrates remote keyless entry systems. There are systems and tools for emergency assistance.e.g. a small wireless pendant transceiver to be worn around neck, an antenna a patient holds over their implanted cardiac device to transmit data for downloading over the telephone line and analysis by the  physician, and systems to help elderly and disabled deal with their loneliness and depression by connecting them with other elderly or disabled people.
