Okosotthon rendszerek speciális alkalmazási lehetőségeinek vizsgálata

Dr. Szabó Sándor

Technological developments have recently led to a significant increase in the number of different smart home solutions and in the interest of the general public. People want to feel comfortable and safe in their homes, to spend their free time in a useful way, and are therefore more open to modern solutions.


The student's task is to study smart home options and wireless technologies, to study the literature on the subject, and to analyse commercially available solutions. Using this knowledge, the student will implement various security and comfort functions using sensors and investigate their controllability by camera. Furthermore, testing the functionality of the developed solution, analysing the concept and evaluating the results. The task will give the student an insight into the possibilities of the modern smart home concept.

In addition to the usual convenience functions, smart home systems can also be used for other applications. A camera system connected to the smart home can detect abnormal postures (fainting, heart attack detection), fever detection, fire detection, burglary security, facial recognition, etc. A properly complemented smart home system can keep elderly family members safe, and in case of health problems, the system can automatically generate an alarm and notify the ambulance or relatives.

In addition to camera systems, the smart home can also be equipped with appropriate sensors to measure heart rate and ECG. Atrial fibrillation is the most common form of cardiac arrhythmia, accounting for almost a third of all strokes in developing countries. Because atrial fibrillation can be intermittent, it often goes undiagnosed in hospital. A stand-alone laboratory can provide the tools to detect it by monitoring the heart rhythm in the home. Using different technologies, such as wave analysis, it can help to rule out false alarms and provide continuous data on a day-to-day basis, thus taking preventive care of our heart health.
