'Smart home' monitors hygiene habits

Dr Val Curtis, of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, shows the BBC around her "smart house".

She shows how the toilet, sink, soap and toothpaste in her bathroom are wired up to a central computer so that she can monitor her family's hygiene habits.

The system is part of a research project to track our daily behaviour.
