Smart Home Healthcare Industry Background

History of smart homes can be traced back in 1984 with introduction of the term Smart Home. Efforts to supplement the home with technology can be dated back in early 20th century. Introduction of the first microprocessors in the early 1970s created a new wave of devices that could be adapted for assisting homecare. Pico Electronics, a Scotland based company in 1975, developed the first network protocol, X10, focusing on home automation. Smart home healthcare focuses on providing care in the home for elderly, outpatients and people with disabilities. It was developed to aid healthy individuals in monitoring their health and well-being using sensors that are worn or implanted in the surrounding environment. The earlier group of sensors have garnered lots of attention recently due to introduction of devices such as Fitbit and others. These form the basis of a new emphasis on health and lifestyle awareness. Advent of technology in medicine and healthcare continues to lower mortality rate, and thus surges the need for alternative solutions. Smart home healthcare can prove cost-effective in assisting the disabled and elderly to stay independently in home for longer time. Smart home devices allow greater independence and quality of life while minimizing the chance of social-isolation. Thus, increasing demand for smart home devices will thus drive industry growth during the forthcoming years.
