The vast interest in the IoT has led to the development of many solutions in multiple sectors. In this chapter we concentrated on AAL and Smart Homes which are two domains that are closely interrelated. Of particular interest is the interoperability between the solutions deployed which as expected rely on different software and hardware platforms. Our attention has focused on consolidated proposals, evolved over the time, which are a base for other projects. In particular, we presented three major projects and their evolution: UniversAAL, Domoinstant and AllJoyn.
