The market of smart homes, offices, generally smart buildings has been growing very much in recent years. At the same time, the market offers many opportunities for both technical applications and business cases. The paper shows how the smart homes technology data and its analysis can be used to determine the behaviour patterns of the residents; how the important data can be saved; how to compare the behaviour patterns with actual situation; how to evaluate the difference between the patterns and reality; how to calculate the intervention of the expert systems; how to inform about a change in behaviour of the residents; how to report an alarm when house space seems being disrupted and how to react when serious malfunctions occurs. A fuzzy-expert system was used with benefit for these tasks.
