Abstract

Integration of smart home technology has emerged as a critical development that significantly increases the wellbeing of elderly people. This is accomplished by providing various tools and services that support health, safety and independent living conditions. The use of advanced security features such as remote monitoring, security cameras and motion sensors has been effective in preventing accidents and alerting caregivers or family members in potential emergencies, thus increasing the feeling of independence and self-sufficiency among the elderly. It also allows elderly people to maintain their independent living for long periods of time. In particular, smart home devices that allow an individual to control their environment through voice commands or remote access are optimized for efficiently and effectively completing daily activities. This technology also provides many health and fitness benefits, particularly for elderly people who are socially isolated or living alone. Studies have shown that smart home technology has a significant potential to improve the quality of life of elderly people. In conclusion, it is considered a critical development that allows elderly people to live independently, comfortably and safely.
