Abstract This paper presents an ongoing effort to create added value complete services for end users on top of an AAL continuous data gathering environment. It presents the general architecture proposed by the GIRAFFPLUS project for long term monitoring of older users at home. The paper also describes the main choices concerning the middleware (UNIVERSAAL compliant), the long-term data storage, and a user-oriented component, called DVPIS, dedicated to interaction with different users of the AAL environment. The interaction services pave the way for creating a complete approach for differentiated users.
