The idea of applying semantic web technologies to the area of smart homes (SH) and building automation has resulted in a number of research activities and initiatives that have been recently developed. This article starts with an overview of ongoing work towards embedding semantics into home automation services. We then highlight the problems not considered by previous solutions. The core value of the work presented here is contained in a novel goal-driven approach for building automation service allocation and control. A new concept of semantic homes (SeH) and its architectural vision is another significant contribution. The comparison between existing and suggested solutions is rounded off by a use case scenario from the area of ambient assisted living.
