This paper presents the work done in the integration of a spoken dialogue system in a new project on an Interactive Home of the Future. This spoken dialogue system gives access to a virtual butler that is able to control the home environment. In this system we combine automatic speech recognition, natural language understanding, speech synthesis and a visual interface based on a realistic animated face. In order to make the system available to the people using the home was necessary several modifications to the system to create a robust input interface.
