Smart environments are increasingly available and support users in their daily activities in different ways. This paper presents a service-based approach for users active in a smart environment such as a building, campus or public place. The concept is illustrated through the SSP project which provides environment-specific and contextual services on mobile devices running the Android platform. The authors are experiencing an increasing level of connectivity and automation in their environment. At lot of devices are proposed to consumers to help them in their common tasks such as driving, road navigation, accessing information, booking or buying things and providing contextual advice.
