For the last decade wireless sensors, especially multi-modal sensor technologies have been developing for supporting healthcare services for elderly and children. The main motivation behind this is the fact that the world's expectations for an average lifetime is getting longer, thus increasing the costs of healthcare. The need for technological support on the subject has led wireless sensor technologies and sophisticated electronics to become within the reach of average users and research effort on the subject has attained much importance. The radio frequency identification (RFID), which has already been used in retail and the wireless biological and environmental sensors have begun to be used in healthcare and smart remote monitoring applications. In this paper, we investigate the issues to be considered while designing smart remote monitoring applications and propose an appropriate architecture.
