Abstract: Smart home technologies have been developing rapidly in the last few years. However, there is still a lack of annotated rich datasets that can be used for different analysis purposes by researchers. The motivation for this study is driven by the need of self-management for chronic disease patients and the often neglected privacy aspects. The study describes the extension of an existing smart home environment at Great Northern Haven (GHN) with ambient and wearable devices. The discussed principles include the design of the experiment, data collection strategies and encountered challenges in regards to the sensors, connection problems and occupation with multiple inhabitants.
