Abstract—The digital home service proposed here is intended to implement an emotional interface in relation to each user’s condition by applying living-related convergence technology including IT, BT, electronics and architecture to the residential environment. The digital home service system operates in the order of information recognition, signal transmission, integrated control, expression. We have implemented a system that works with the concept step by step weight forest, the sea, healing, depending on the body weight of the signal. To find out user preferences for the proposed system, a demonstration setting was installed. A questionnaire survey was conducted with 300 participants in the setting. The survey results showed user satisfaction was high in the order of lighting, sound, vibration. The user recognition sensing, systerior and LED/optical fiber emotional lighting system are integrated into the proposed digital home service. The emotion-oriented customized service based on the information of user condition allows users to control their surroundings at their own discretion. And this study implemented the service infra capable of accommodating user preferences with the convergence of heterogeneous technologies and industries in a relatively less objective field of emotion, which is prone to individual differences.

Index Terms—Emotional convergence technology, digital home service, user interface, system interior, interaction.
