Ambient Intelligence is an interesting research application area for Multi-Agent Systems, in general, and for Agent-Oriented Software Engineering, in particular. In this paper, we focus on the methodological support that agent-oriented methodologies can provide to such kind of systems: we discuss HomeManager, an application for the control of an intelligent home designed through the SODA agent-oriented methodology. There, the house is seen as an intelligent environment made of independent, distributed devices, each equipped with an agent to support the user's goals and tasks.
