Smart systems for the support of people with dementia are being installed in many parts of the world. There is little standardization of infrastructure, resulting in many incompatible systems and non-interoperable devices being installed. Smart apartments in London and Bristol have been developed using off-the-shelf infrastructure based upon the KNX buildings automation system. This approach has resulted in short development times, and excellent interoperability and reliability.
