As the population on the earth is growing, the long-ranging planning of health and medical facilities are affected. Especially with old-aged people, health issues are more compared with other aged people. The medication given by the doctors to old age people to those health issues is not rememberable. People need to take the pills with a specified dose at a recommended time and frequency especially in case of diabetes and high blood pressure. To overcome the problem an IoT device is designed to remember about their medication time to the old people and their caretakers. The IR sensor present in the system will be continuously monitoring whether medicines has been taken properly by the patient or not. By using the GSM, the caretakers have been notified to their smart phones and watches. So, we design a pillbox which acts as a safety net for patients. The main objective of the system is to inform the patients to take their medicines in time that is prescribed by the doctor and to inform their family members which reduces their work.
