In this work, we propose HuMorse, a universal home automation system for the elderly and people with disabilities of vision, speech or paralyzed limbs. Analog input using facial processing or tilt gestures is captured via smart-phone and is mapped to Morse code - dots and dashes. This Morse code sequence can be interpreted as words in a group to form an instruction from a basic instruction set. Using such a translation scheme - we define an architecture that can be used to communicate short messages and actuate simple commands on home automation systems such as heating, cooling, and the operation of smart doors and windows. In our prototype, we are able to achieve 90 - 95 \% instruction translation accuracy and actuation time in the order of 9 - 13 seconds depending on the length and complexity of the instruction.
