Nowadays, most hospitals have new problem that is lack of medical nurse due to the number of patient increas rapidly. The patient especially with physical disabilities are difficult to control the switch on electrical appliances in patient's room. This research aims to develope voice recognition based home automation and being applied to patient room. A miniature of patient's room are made to simulate this system. The patient's voice is received by the microphone and placed close to the patient to reduce the noise.V3 Voice recognition module is used to voice recognition process. Electrical bed of patient is represented by mini bed with utilising motor servo. The lighting of patient room is represented by small lamp with relay. And the help button to call the medical nurse is represented by buzzer. Arduino Uno is used to handle the controlling process. Six basic words with one syllable are used to command for this system. This system can be used after the patient's voice is recorded. This system can recognize voice commands with an accuracy 75%. The accuracy can be improved up to 85% by changing the voice command into two syllables with variations of vowels and identical intonation. Higher accuracy up to 95% can be reached by record all the subject's voice.
