Home systems consist of home equipment connected to a central communication bus. They enable the separation of the actual device from its control centre. Because any ordinary pushbutton telephone can be used for telecontrol of the home system, the locus of control is expanded world-wide. In this paper a design study is presented of a user interface for such a system. Much effort is devoted to reducing the user's memory load, without sacrificing efficiency of use. The way synthetic speech is used to provide feedback is discussed briefly.
