A server infrastructure allows wireless wearable appliances or portable handsets to access consumer services offered via the server. Services are accessed via a Universal Home Services Interface (UHSI) which is shared by all access devices. The UHSI can include a voice-activated interface to simplify usage from non-graphical terminals. In a home network the infrastructure resides on a home gateway or central home computer and allows users access to local subsystems or external ¿ WAN services. An implementation based on a Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) home network is described.
