    This report describes the development of an Information System which aids the elderly
    and disabled perform home control.

    The Information System acts as a set-top box which generates video signals to display a
    graphical user interface (GUI) on a television. The GUI can be navigated by the user
    through a remote control.

    The Information System can communicate with X10 modules, therefore being capable of
    turning lights and appliances around the home on and off.

    The internal and external temperatures can also be displayed on the television screen.

    A clock also keeps the time and date and these are displayed at the top of the
    Information System’s GUI.
