This paper presents an assisted living system for elderly people. The assisted living key areas comfort, safety and health are defined and discussed. A strategy is elaborated which mainly uses standard home automation sensors. The solution is based on the transformation of sensor signals by automata and fuzzy rules to detect safety-or health-critical situations. The role of comfort as an enabling factor is also described. A real pilot project to implement the solution is specified.
