This paper aims to present a novel architecture for the indoors Ambient Assisted Living domain. This domain synthesizes features from the home-based e-health and ambient intelligence scientific areas. The HERA system addresses mainly the needs of elderly in the early stages of the Alzheimer disease aiming to improve the quality of their home life and extend its duration. Other user categories are elderly suffering from cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. The novelty of this architecture is the use of the TV and Set-Top-Box probably already existing in a user's home (and the remote control with which the user is familiar) providing services from an application server integrating agent technology-based personal assistance.
