This paper proposes a new architectural approach of a home-appliances system that (seen in Fig. 1 ) embeds three different main components: smart home entertainment, remote monitoring and assistive systems. A review of State of the Art of the actual architectures and implementations in the field of e-Heath systems is presented (see Fig. 3 ). A rational approach for system developing is detailed, starting from a prototype point of view (see Fig. 2 ) to the new integrated smart home entertainment

A stream-based home entertainment system will provide a friendly and immersive environment facilitating the connection between the technical system and the house residents. Sensors forming a Body Area Network (BAN) will be also integrated with the new smart home entertainment devices.
