    Our everyday living environments are inhabited by a huge and constantly increasing number of electronic devices. Smart Environment is a common name for a physical place where these various devices interact with each other in order to provide useful services for the end-user. Because different people usually have different kind of needs it is important that the user is able to configure the Smart Environment so that the services provided to individual user are in fact useful. In this paper, we present an approach for enabling end-user to configure how the Smart Environments functions. In our approach we utilize Semantic Web technologies and publish/subscribe based architecture for providing semantic interoperability in the Smart Environment. As a proof of concept, we present a reference implementation of a tool that can be used to configure Smart Environments and a case study in a smart greenhouse domain.
