As smart home technologies continue to be deployed in research and real world environments, there continues to be a need for quality visualization of the smart home data. This data come from a variety of sensor sources, artificial intelligence algorithms and human feedback. Building tools that are easily configured, rapidly developed and capable of communicating with both real time and historical data is ever challenging. This work introduces PyViz, a smart home focused middleware interactive

During its development, issues of configuration, ease of use and adaptability have been addressed. The demonstration of this tool hopes to enlighten the audience about the facets of user interfaces, network agents and smart home complexity.
