In an interdisciplinary team, we developed personas and use cases addressing higher-level needs of residents in a smart home, such as safety, self reflection or evocation of memories. For one of the use cases, we describe a concrete usage scenario in which photos are taken automatically in predefined situations. We show how we implemented the required technology, a multi-camera person localization framework, and present results from a lab study to evaluate the performance and user experience of the technology.
