In the future, Ambient Intelligence (AmI) technology could assist people autonomously and interpret their intentions. Current technology can already be used to recognize the presence of a person in a private or public space and trigger an automatic response or reaction depending on the user activity. This work describes ContextCare, an extension for an video surveillance system in a health care scenarios based on activity recognition using sensor smartphones. Both systems are coordinated using ECA parading.
