Modern home data networks based on the IP paradigm are nowadays conceived to support either the delivery of multimedia contents, and different services, such as home automation (e.g. household appliances commands, lighting and surveillance controls), and assisted living functions. A common delivery infrastructure, however, seldom corresponds to a unified service supply. This paper presents an interactive MHP application, aimed at turning a commercial DVB-T Set Top Box into a control unit for the simplified management of a home automation system. It also discusses a customization to enable video streaming over the home data network, that allows the delivery of assisted living services on the same infrastructure. Future developments of the system include the integration of biomedical devices to monitor the user's health conditions and automatically transfer relevant data to remote health assistance centers.
