The crisis brought about by the spreading of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pushed the medical field around the world to explore techniques to monitor one’s health condition. A critical aspect of containing illness is isolation; however, it could also lead to less interaction between a patient and a corresponding caregiver. This study aimed to develop a home healthcare system for a person under monitoring, like those experiencing illness, that is easy to use and multifunctional. The system includes the following devices: a smart medicine box that could remind the patient which medicine to take at a specific time of the day; an automated vital signs monitoring device that could automatically retrieve vital signs from a pulse oximeter and temperature sensor; general communication devices between the patient and the caregiver; and a web application that is locally available for the patient and the caregiver and could be accessed by a doctor using the Internet. The said devices are interconnected via a local network, and a Raspberry Pi syncs the data from the local database to the cloud database, where the doctor can view it using the online web application. The said devices were successfully implemented and interconnected via a router and tested with an Internet connection. The delays recorded in the devices were low enough to make them acceptable for possible medical usage in the future once medically proven safe to use.
