Abstract

In recent years, there has been a steady rise in the installation of smart environment systems. These systems can consist of a wide range of sensors and actuators and as such can become very complex, which brings the average user to the limits of her technical understanding. Consequently, innovative methods are required to simplify the interaction with such systems. This paper describes an approach for recording events triggered by a user and for linking those to actuator effects. Through this, even those end-users who are inexperienced with modern day technology can create custom rule sets for smart environment systems.
