Existing technologies in home and building automation system interface offer extensive possibilities to improve the individual life. However, especially seniors have large problems with the usually technology-centered user interfaces and avoid the technology. Instead, they are used to speech, which leaves speech-recognition and -synthesis suitable technologies for barrier-free interfaces. However, speech-based user interfaces require a large effort for adaptation, from the design of the user and system interfaces, to the adequate installation of devices. This paper introduces an approach to reduce this effort by a generative programming approach of the user and system interface.
