Advances in phone technology and new style of computing paradigm (i.e., cloud computing) permits real time acquisition, processing, and tracking of activities in smart home. In this paper, we develop android smartphone application to assists elderly people for independent living in their own homes. It reduces the health expenditures and burden of health care professionals in care facility units. We assume smart home as an intelligent agent to perceive the environment and process the sensory data on cloud.
