Currently, society has more aging filters and this is done because: each year the amount of adults who exceed 60 years of age increases, each year more men and women participate in activities outside their homes and thanks to this, new solutions are required to help take care of older people (the elderly). Systems that support us with the care of the elderly at home already exist and some are economic, allowing healthcare centers to obtain them and help them remotely take care of our love ones. As the years go by, technology has made the comfort of our loved ones at home possible. In this research, a novel architecture and initial prototype is presented focused on comfort and it exploits the multi-agent systems paradigm that includes both stationary and mobile agents. In addition, an adaptative mechanism is presented that allows mobile agents to adapt to diversified local environments.
