The rapid and constant evolution of Smart Spaces has introduced an increase in the complexity and quantity of its components, making the monitoring and management processes more challenging and complex. On the other hand, Service Mashups enable the design and development novel and modern Web applications based on easy-to-accomplish end-user service compositions.

We introduce the concept of Smart Space ”governing”: managing an Smart Space with a set of monitoring processes and specific actions performed by the system when some events or behaviors occur. Our approach to this concept allows the end-user to personalize those processes and actions by creating Service Mashups that can published into the platform’s marketplace in order to be reused.
