In this paper, we present MERCURY, a platform for simple integration and management of

heterogeneous devices and services via a web-based interface. In contrast to existing approaches,

MERCURY is geared towards non-IT-savvy end users. It enables these end users to easily interconnect

devices, which can act as sensors or actuators, to model rules that trigger actions. Sets of rules allow

users to model entire, often reoccurring, scenarios. It shall thus enable users to take full advantage of

the potential for support in everyday life such integration offers. Technically, our solution is based on

Portal technology. We describe a tangible scenario to portray the steps a user will need to take to

achieve the desired functionality.
