Sense Everything, Control Everything (SECE) is an event-driven system that lets nontechnical users create services that combine communication, location, social networks, presence, calendaring, and physical devices such as sensors and actuators. SECE combines information from multiple sources to personalize services and adapt them to changes in the user's context and preferences. Events trigger associated actions, which can control email delivery, change how phone calls are handled, update the user's social network status, and set the state of actuators such as lights, thermostats, and electrical appliances.
