    In recent years, wearable technology has become a hot topic in the tech industry. The use of wearable devices is skewed more towards younger individuals. In the thesis, we will explore the reasons why this is so, since monitoring of physical condition is also important for the elderly in terms of providing better and more proactive treatment and better home care. Within the thesis we will present the developed solution for monitoring physical condition of people in home environment with emphasis on the ease of use, low price and scalability. We created a wearable device prototype and a data collection service to which wearable device connects and sends data. wearable device is based on SoC module ESP32, its task is to continuously monitor heart rate and galvanic skin response (emotional arousal). Gathered data is sent to the server. Wearable device is connectable to the data collection service that can be deployed in the cloud or locally. The server stores, processes and visualizes received sensor data and notifies caretakers when it detects anomalies in physical condition.
