The demography of the Federal Republic of Germany predicts that the average age of the society rises in future. A generation ago, elderly people died only a couple of years after being retired. Nowadays elderly people enjoy their after work-life for approx. 20 additional years. These are very active and they enjoy traveling, meeting friends or find new purposes in life. The research project "Home Interaction Service" develops new mobile assistants by using Smart Watches for continuously monitoring of physical activities to identify life anomalies and to assist elderly people in their daily life. New algorithm also enables the Smart Watch also to be a new gesture interaction device to control home consumer products and to support new services that might become available in future.
