System architecture of customized intelligent lighting control and indoor environment monitoring system for persons with mild cognitive impairment or dementia

Abstract

A customized intelligent lighting control combined with an indoor environment monitoring system is presented as a novel system architecture for the help of elderly, especially for people with dementia. Bluish light, which affects human circadian rhythm, is the key element of this study aiming to find ways to enhance patient wellbeing and reduce nursing workload. Moreover, thermal comfort of occupants is monitored and discussed.
