Abstract: Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) applications aim to allow elderly, sick and disabled people to stay safely at home while collaboratively assisted by their family, friends and medical staff. In principle, AAL amalgamated with Internet of Things introduces a new healthcare connectivity paradigm that interconnects mobile apps and sensors allowing constant monitoring of the patient. By hiding technology into light fixtures, in this paper we present AmbLEDs, a ambient light sensing system, as an alternative to spreading sensors that are perceived as invasive, such as cameras, microphones, microcontrollers, tags or wearables, in order to create a crowdware ubiquitous context-aware implicit interface for recognizing, informing and alerting home environmental changes and human activities to support continuous proactive care.
