The paper presents Interact-DDM (interact - domestic device management), a solution that integrates domestic devices with traditional computer networks. The architecture proposal is based on TCP/IP network management standards: SNMP protocol and management information bases (MIB). The centralized management operation has been enhanced with additional capabilities integrated on the agents. The design has been performed permitting a very flexible device definition and dynamic configuration. This is achieved by the meta-definition of devices in the system MIB. A laboratory experiment has been deployed to check and validate the design proposed, where multiple configurations have been tested, and the design modularity has been proved.
