Patients at home may forget to take their medicines on time, miss doses or even take overdoses. This particularly applies to the elderly at home. Hence, this paper presents a monitoring system to improve the medical adherence which is based on Internet of Things (IoT) concept known as smart medicine cabinet monitoring system.  The system is proposed to remind the elderly to take their medicines on time, to ensure that the elderly have taken their medicines and to notify the family member of the…
