Abstract: The Homer system for telecare and home automation is described. Core capabilities are shared between these applications, supplemented by application- specific devices and services. Current home systems do not support simple, yet sophisticated, ways of controlling the home in a generic high-level way. In contrast, Homer is designed to make it easy for non-technical users to achieve this. Developers create home components that expose their services and functionality in a way that encourages combination. Components are made accessible to end-user applications through an HTTP interface, allowing use of any interface technology. Internally, Homer supports automation through policies that combine the functionalities and services offered by components. These policies can be created using many kinds of user interfaces. The Homer architecture, components, policies and user interfaces are discussed. Finally, the paper concludes with an evaluation of the work in comparison to similar systems.
