This paper discusses an architecture that aims to unify and simplify the supervision and control of networked devices in commercial building environments. To be adoptable for real-life applications, the technical key features of such an architecture are mainly derived from four high-level requirements: the system must add true user value, still be easy to use, work for a broad range of quite different devices and minimize the engineering costs. This results in a distributed, ad hoc capable and scalable hard-and software infrastructure with the ability to adapt to the context of use and goal-centric services provided by the numerous underlying devices of the heterogeneous building network. Preferably, standard mobile clients such as smartphones and PDAs act as control points providing a graphical end user interface generated on the fly. This text explores the different building blocks that make up such a system, elaborates topics that are currently under research and proposes a solution.
