Due to a growing older population, researchers and industry are paying more attention to the needs of this group of people. Ambient Intelligence (AmI) aims to help people in their daily lives, achieving a more natural interaction of users with an electronic home environment. Embodied Conversational Agents (ECAs) arise as a natural interface between humans and AmI. Our contribution is to present AVATAR: an architecture to develop ECAs based on open source tools and libraries. In the current prototype the virtual agent acts as a natural control interface of the home automation system. In addition, we provide the details to allow its use by Spanish speakers.
