We present our planned efforts within the SensHome project in building a corpus of daily activities in smart environments. The recordings consisting of measurable events as provided by the instrumentation along with video and audio recordings. SensHome foresees a threestep development where the instrumentation is verified in a dual-reality setting followed by recording in controlled environments. Finally, the recordings will be done under real circumstances. We extend previous work on activities as formulated by (Leontiev, 1978) and (Stahl, 2009) with the notion of partial orders of ontologically represented events denoted episodes that constitute fundamental building block for annotations.
