Fall poses a serious impact on health issues of an elderly person. Fall detection is one of the necessary actions to be taken. So the fall detection system is needed. Thereby here the development of the system includes methodology based on sensor-video integration technology. The event of fall occurrence can be detected using the sensor as well as the camera and the acquired information is sent as messages and live video feed to the user in case of emergency through making use of Wi-Fi technology.
