Abstract. Smart home technology offers a viable solution to the increasing needs
of the elderly, special needs and home based-healthcare populations. The research
to date has largely focused on the development of communication technologies,
sensor technologies and intelligent user interfaces.
We claim that this technological evolution has not been matched with a step
of a similar size on the software counterpart. We particularly focus on the
software that emphasizes the intelligent aspects of a Smart Home and the
difficulties that arise from the computational analysis of the information collected
