This article addresses the design and implementation of user interaction concepts for smart caring homes. Elderly suffering from age related frailty or chronic diseases, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and mild dementia are the targeted primary users. Their informal and formal caregivers are regarded as secondary users. The current smart home approach to user interaction is either too intrusive or too unobtrusive. This article proposes an alternative that implements both concepts in complementary interaction paradigms, using multiple types of feedback devices.
