As the ageing population is increasing from time to time, the study is to propose an appropriate smart home design and construction to cater to the needs and difficulties of the aged people. In order to have a better idea and concept of smart home design and construction, it is required to determine the fundamental needs and difficulties encountered by the aged people. The self-administered questionnaire is performed in two ways which are online survey and hardcopy survey to gather primary data. It is circulating to the senior citizens who are aged 60 and above. One-Way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) test has performed to determine the common needs and difficulties of aged people and evaluate the significance difference between the age group and common needs and difficulties. The result showed that love and belongingness are the most regular needs and health issue is the typical difficulty faced by aged people. Significance difference will determine whether the needs and difficulties are faced by the aged people in the ageing population. ANOVA test has also shown that the telecommunication system is the most important smart home features among all the features. Further, the relationship between common needs and difficulties and smart home features has been tested through correlation test. There are presences of the relationship between the needs and difficulties and smart home features. Therefore, the smart home features are considerable and applicable to cater the needs and difficulties of aged people.
