 People crave for successful aging, without any dependency on others and this requires taking care of an individual’s physical, mental and social health. In order to facilitate the elderly to maintain their capacity to carry out the daily activities of life, advances in smart home technologies are initiated. These technologies provide an embedded assessment of an individual’s functional ability in his/her home on a moment-to-moment, daily, and longitudinal basis. The disabled people can benefit the most from this technology as they encounter huge difficulties to even perform the basic activities of daily life. The target of smart home systems is to create an environment that is aware of the activities taking place within it. Smart homes are no longer design concepts of the future. They are being built now, and they are having a direct impact on the lifestyles of people living in them.
