The conventional architecture of smart home is usually server-centric and this may cause many problems. The distributed architecture presented in this paper is based on multiple OSGi (Open Service Gateway Initiative) platforms. Relative home appliance services which are compliant with R-OSGi middleware for the home network system are also developed. The important aspect of R-OSGi is that it offers distribution transparency and uses the natural boundaries between software modules to establish the potential boundaries for distribution of the application. Experimental results obtained from the demo room show that the architecture is practical and reliable.
