Background: The number of elderly people is growing, and it becomes a challenge for families to safeguard their health. They are facing decline in their health and missing some of the quality of life provided to them. They are unable to control their self. They are vulnerable to fall and get in dangerous or restricted area.

Aim: This study aims towards an experiment using Real-Time Location System (RTLS) via ZigBee technology in order to track the elderly person at his/her home.

Objectives: To track the old people and provide them proper care and support whenever they are facing challenging times.

Methods: RTLS is a system that offers a real-time tracking and positioning of people or objects.

Results: The results showed that the ZigBee technology provides valuable insights to find the location of an elderly person at home and sends an alert when a person gets in a restricted area.

Conclusion: ZigBee has contributed to be one of the best of its kind of protocol that can help to track and manage aged people at their house.

Keywords: Elderly people, real-time location system, ZigBee, n-core polaris, protocol, vulnerable.
