Smart homes were developed to improve inhabitants comfort by integrating electronic devices that perform the control of domestic activities, such as home entertainment systems, yard watering, house cleaning, etc. They are equipped with sensors and actuators that rely on P2P networking to share services and resources amongst them. To perform home management, inhabitants want to access their homes, from anywhere in the world using everyday devices, like smartphones. These devices aren’t peers of the network. They are outsiders that use a technology different, accessing the in-house P2P networks through Service Exposers, a special set of peers that expose the services available in the P2P network. Expose the services is challenging, because services in the network are always changing, new services can appear and the existing can change their locations and methods. These peers use a different technology; non-standard and inaccessible by devices like smartphones. For this, a P2P Service Exposer architecture is proposed, that indexes all the services available in the network, expose them to clients in a standardized platform, such as Web Services, and perform translations between the two different technological environments.
