This paper proposes a multi-agent system architecture for a service acquiring system. The proposed system is integrated in an ambient intelligent system, AmIHomCare, a smart house who supervises elderly people in their homes and also helps people during their daily activities. The service acquiring system is specified and validated using a formal specification method - Event B.
