In the analytical part of this report several EC projects, developing an idea to create the intellectualized home environment (IHE) serving for peoples’ comfort on the base of multiple internet things and services (IoT&S), are discussed, and the EC HORIZON 2020 program perspectives in this field are presented.

The IHE itself is presented as a complex sociotechnical fabric with the inherited mixture of real human and elements of artificial intellect as well. Multi-agent-system-based intellectics is used for the IHE’s training, retraining, self-training, and functional behavior. Three aspects of human being’s behavioral features, usually considered as intellectual actions, were practically realized, and they introduced new additional dimension to the systems complexity.

The IHE’s complex systems model implementationwas simulated to demonstrate the practical vitality and efficiency of the theoretical approach to the realization of intelligent environment of IoT&S for usre‘s comfort in two projects: ,,Research and Development of Internet Infrastructure for IoT&S in the Smart Environment (IDAPI)“, and “Research on Smart Home Environment and Development of Intelligent Technologies (BIATech)”.
