This article will be giving an overview about the technological structure of the futuristic home environments which are basically a combinations of smart environments, sustainable environments, communicable environments, Artificial Intelligence, in cooperation with mechatronic systems. These futuristic environments can be considered as a solution for the expected problems like energy crisis, healthcare & wellness of the human beings in their home environment. The introduction of sensors and comunication technologies can be seen as a platform or base towards the implementation of intelligent and interacting systems, such as service and maintenance robots.
