This paper describes the deployment of speech technologies in STARHome, a fully functional smart home prototype. We make use of speech and speaker recognition technologies to provide three voice services, namely, voice command for controlling home appliances, voice biometric for entrance-door access control, and service customization (speaker-loaded command control). Voice applications for STARHome have been designed to deal with short utterances and low SNR.
