Abstract Over the past decade, there is an accelerating interest in Ambient Intelligent (AmI) environments, that has resulted in an abundance of 'smart' products, applications and research prototypes, which aim to revolutionize daily human life, boost productivity and enhance well-being. Given the vast number of currently available devices and services, it is not possible for developers to build all-inclusive applications, which will enable users to systematically monitor and control the variety of physical devices and services that they own. Instead, users need to either rely on diverse applications from different vendors to accomplish their goals, or use integration platforms sacrificing functionality and rich interaction in favor of interoperability. With the emergence of `Internet of Things', several mature technologies are available nowadays to develop interactive-rich user interfaces. Various technologies have been established, that allow the composition of user interfaces (UIs) by making a “mashup” application, which is a web page, or applications in general, that combine data and services from existing interfaces, resulting in the production of functional and rich UIs. This thesis proposes the UInify design studio, which empowers designers to compose flexible web applications in real-time. This framework binds, under a common roof, all the individual user interfaces that control and/or monitor hardware and software components of a smart environment (e.g. a smart home) by providing an intelligent user interface developed as a web application mashup. UInify offers a set of tools allowing designers to combine multiple individual UIs together and introduces new rich user interface compositions. The end-users are provided with a single UI through which they can control the intelligent facilities of their surroundings, as well as tailor their surroundings according to their needs. After reviewing the relevant motivational state-of-the-art, the high-level architecture and the implementation details are elaborated. Several use cases of composite applications with the proposed system will be described, such as an application for the Home TV and an Interactive Kitchen Countertop.
