WSU Smart Home in a Box
Smart Home in a Box is a free program that allows you to be part of a high impact research project that strives to create a long-term smart environment testbed to collect activity data in your home. The collected activity data is essential for our research and allows us to build advanced algorithms that can accurately identify a variety of activities which are necessary to building smart home applications. The benefits of accurate activity recognition has a tremendous amount of value including medical/assisted living applications for our aging population and developing more energy efficient environments. Accurate activity recognition will mean that we can build better home automation tools that will allow elderly to remain home longer or simply turn the lights off in a room when there are no occupants to conserve energy.
