Technology is present in different sectors of society, a world mediated by information and communication technologies, can offer for people with special needs the possibility of improving the limitations imposed by their physiological condition. Today the Internet of Things (IoT) is the emerging technology that can provide people with special needs the support to achieve a better quality of life. It is in this context that the proposal of an IoT architecture with indoor and outdoor scenarios connected to Assistive Technologies (AT).
