Approximately 14 million people in the United States are deaf or significantly hard-of-hearing (DHH). This means they are often unaware of important household sounds such as a doorbell, baby crying, microwave beeping, etc. While smart homes are becoming the norm, these solutions are heavily skewed toward the hearing community, largely ignoring the monitoring of commonplace but important household sound cues. Using existing home cable networking devices, we have been able to successfully detect daily household sounds of interest amidst the noise generated by a busy household. Detection of the sounds of daily living can then be utilized by existing visual alert signalers to notify the deaf or hard-of-hearing customer.
