Internet of Things scenarios demand adaptability to hold the heterogeneity of systems and devices employed; gateway-based solutions are a common answer to the issues of smart environments. The development of software for gateways, using a middleware to handle the different devices demands, is possible in our working scenario, but the maintenance cost of such a solution is high because of software development constraints imposed by hardware and system limitations of the gateway. This paper depicts an SDN approach for smart environments resulted from a refactoring of a previous middleware proposal. Through an instantiation of the refactored middleware in a home network to deliver a health monitoring service the benefits are demonstrated; the benefits regard the digital representation of the physical realm, deployment and maintenance of services, and management of devices and networks.
