Monitoring behavior of the elderly and the disabled living alone has become a major public health problem in the people modern societies. Among the various scientific aspects involved in the home monitoring field, the authors are interested in the paper and the proposal of a solution allowing distributed sensor nodes to communicate with each other in an optimal way adapted to the specific application constraints.
