Agenda / Key points discussed:

  1. Single user at home is not too viable at this current stage. Therefore, the system should cater for hospitals or nursing homes which have ward and shortage of man power.
  2. Cost issue in building up a working prototype of home automation system (e.g. using Z-Wave or other infrared transceiver modules) – Borrow modules from my previous IA company.
  3. Finalize home automation features – Pill (vitamin or general medicine) dispenser, alarm system with motion sensor, monitoring camera, lighting control, UI (web application)
  4. Focus on the usefulness of Raspberry Pi – how extendable it is, how it save in the cost, the merit of the system using Raspberry Pi.
