An integrated Real-time Luminous Facilities Management (Rt-LFM) system website has been developed, including hardware for data collection and software for data storage and download instantly. Two lighting sensors (illuminance, and color temperature) have been combined into a single device for measuring the continuous luminous data in the residential care homes. A wireless sensor network has been established through the combination and connection of lighting sensors to monitor the luminous conditions. The dynamic luminous environment data can then be saved and downloaded in the cloud-based system. By using the Rt-LFM system, the caregivers and managers in the residential care homes can promptly realize the luminous environment based on the instant data, while the construction professionals can then well design the building services for new homes or renovation. It is expected that the long-term health of our elderly will be improved finally. Furthermore, the subsequently improved elderly health conditioning will also relieve the medical burden of the government in central.
