With the development of mobile internet of thing technology and remote monitoring technology, which are widely used in nursing homes, a design method of intelligent monitoring system for health of the Elderly in nursing home is introduced. Through internet of thing technology networks in nursing homes, the functions of intelligent monitoring, vital signs monitoring, call alarm, tracking and positioning are realized. Furthermore, due to the instability of mobile Internet, the best treatment time may be missed. Then, in order to better monitor the health status of the elderly in real time, the intelligent reflector technology is applied to the remote monitoring system. Thus, the monitoring efficiency for medical staff can be improved in the nursing home.
