The recent ubiquitous/pervasive technologies allow general household appliances to be connected within the network at home. The Home Network System (HNS, for short) is comprised of such networked appliances to provide various services and applications for home users. The great advantage of HNS lies in integrating (or orchestrating) features of multiple appliances, which yields more value-added and powerful services. The authors call such services HNS integrated services. In developing and providing a HNS integrated service, the service provider must guarantee that the service is safe for inhabitants, house properties and their surrounding environment.
