Ubiquitous environment is expected to be result of researches and studies in ubiquitous home base on. However, because of the complexity of the ubiquitous home base on, the realization of error handling seems impossible. In this paper, we present how to detect and recover from these errors for the Ubiquitous Home utilizing a fault simulator developed for the study and through a variety of experiments, results were discussed and analyzed. Base on the said results, future works are also discussed.
