In this paper, we suggested the indoor tracking service for a home resident using on/off switches and sensors. As an implementation environment this system is developed based on TMO scheme and TMOSM developed from previous works. In order to trace the moving locations of a home resident, we first described the indoor location technology, which adopt physical proximity sensors. And second, we showed a class diagram and interaction model for implementation of proposed system based on TMO scheme and TMOSM. And we described the home structure, as an environment of physical home placement diagram of on/off switches and sensors and acquisition board for receiving signals from them. And we finally implemented the indoor location tracking and a monitoring system. From this system, we obtained healthcare information for providing various home environments, and showed whole of indoor location tracking procedures and continuous moving situations of a home resident via our system.
