This paper presents design and implementation of a homecare system that provides home control assistance and fall detection services using a wrist-watch type wireless motion and location sensing device. This user interface device is equipped with a Zigbee radio transceiver to communicate with a home gateway and track location of the user. The user interface device is also equipped with a 3-axis accelerometer to measure user's 3D motion data so that the home gateway can recognize the user's behavior and fall status.
