Abstract: The number of elderly people suffering from physical or cognitive difficulty is increasing continuously. Elderly people prefer to live in their familiar environment where they can easily perform different activities of their daily life which is also good for their mental and physical well-being. Internet of Things is a mechanism through which any objects can be monitored, controlled, and manipulated. In order to develop efficient application for the elderly living at home independently, the researcher should be aware of the home objects as well as of the living environment. This study uses systematic literature review to determine applications developed to assist elderly people inside their home. A total of 25 primary studies are identified. With the analysis of those studies, important and relevant objects in the daily life of the elderly are identified. Using the results from the review, a new scenario of home environment is visualized. The visualization is expected to provide caret akers with a better view of the living condition of the elderly and position and state of the home objects. This new home scenario is expected to offer a secure and easy living environment for the elderly, where Internet of Things can be used to control all the frequently used home objects by the elderly.
