Today, Sensors/wireless sensor networks are being deployed around the world, measuring local and global environmental conditions. Their advanced sensing functionalities enable context-aware smart platforms, middleware and applications to proliferate. Residences are transformed into smart home, incorporating embedded sensors and pervasive technology. In an idealized vision of a fully integrated smart home, all the operations of a house can be efficiently controlled by a unified smart ubiquitous

A main barrier is the proliferation of incompatible standards and protocols used by various device manufacturers, which makes the smooth integration of appliances from different vendors a complex process. In this paper, we exploit these new technological possibilities to bring smart home towards the Web, achieving high interoperability and flexibility. By employing standardized, well-known, reliable and scalable Middleware Platform, between the embedded devices of the smart home can be addressed. We present the development of a smart home service, supporting concurrent interaction.
