In this article we identify the general communication patterns of physical devices and define all interfaces and conflict resolution strategies that are present in any ensemble. Based on this approach we define a generic component topology applicable for Ambient Intelligent scenarios. We validate our interface framework by showing the application of two smart scenarios: the smart conference room and the smart living room and the possibility to move applications and devices from one ensemble to the other. Our approach guarantees the fully extensibility of device ensembles with new devices.
