Nowadays, interaction with our surrouding environment has increased due to the presence of numerous devices that provide us with services. This is especially true in Smart Homes and can be of great help for the disabled people and the elderly that can no longer perform daily tasks they used to. However, in case of failure, corrective actions can be heavy to take, thus the need for the system to recover by itself and ensure service availability. Service availability is provided through service

It presents a multi-level approach in which both off-line and on-line reconfiguration schemes are used to gradually recover from failed services. Static, effect-based, path and resource reconfiguration levels are described. They have been successfully implemented in the DANAH assistive system, which combines both navigation and service provision for smart homes.
