Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are a new paradigm of telecommunication networks. WSNs are designed to perform efficient data collection and environment monitoring, among other applications. This paper presents an approach of modelling and simulation of cooperation between active products that are equipped with a platform of sensor networks and ambient communication capabilities in order to increase their security, in a context of ambient intelligence of a deposit for chemical substances. The concept of active products supported by a model that they propose, offers the possibility for objects to interact between them in an autonomous, transparent and intelligent way, without any human help.
