Due to the low availability of carers worldwide, technological means to meet the ever-increasing demand for care services are increasingly necessary. This paper discusses how the IoT is being used in the domiciliary care sector in the UK. It begins with market research and industry analysis to identify stakeholders and the possible application of IoT technology and devices in home care for elderly people. Since IoT technology is inherently vulnerable to security threats, the paper discusses security in home care automation, and also conducts a risk evaluation. This analysis and evaluation can be used to learn more about the target audience’s mindset. The results of this research can motivate and inform technology companies to enter the IoT market.
