A smart digital home refers to a living space with devices that are
connected through wired or wireless networks. The connected devices may be
sensors, actors, consumer electronics, appliances, mobile and PC devices
that cooperate transparently for facilitating living and improving usability
in the home. Sensors can capture the and/or detect physical phenomena, like
temperature, humidity, illumination, etc., of living environments and notify
other devices of the phenomena; actors and other devices can then act
according to the phenomena to provide context aware services.

Home care of the old, the young, the sick and the disabled can benefit from
smart digital home technologies, by which carers are able to acquire the
states of the home and the residents anytime, anywhere and to take proper
actions immediately. By the technologies, proper actions can also be
triggered automatically in the presence of specific events, such as resident
falling, and stove catching fire, etc.

Smart digital home technologies enable working from home, remote education,
network shopping, online gaming, etc. High speed broadband network access
and all-IP technologies enabled by frameworks of IMS (IP Multimedia
Subsystem), SDP (Service Delivery Platforms), DLNA (Digital Living Network
Alliance), and so on, offer new communication capabilities. We can foresee
that innovative smart digital home applications benefiting from high network
capabilities will be blooming in the near future. Since a variety of devices
presents in a smart digital home, convergent (across all the screens of TVs,
PCs, appliances and mobile devices) and personalized user experience is
evidently the key for the success of new residential applications.
