The increase in computational power and the networking
abilities of home appliances are revolutionizing the way we
interact with our homes. This trend is growing stronger and
opening a number of technological challenges. From the
point of view of distributed systems, there is a need to design
architectures for enhancing the comfort and safety of the
home, which deal with issues of heterogeneity, scalability
and openness. By considering the evolution of domotic re-
search and projects, we advocate a role for web services in
the domestic network, and propose an infrastructure based
on web services. As a case study, we present an implemen-
tation for monitoring the health of an elder adult using mul-
tiple sensors and clients.
