CLAIMS

1 . A method for managing a remote electronic device (10.1 -10.4) using a user interface (401 ) on an electronic device (1 ), the electronic device being operatively connected to a database (13) associating, for each given device identifier, alternative argument values and graphical elements, the method comprising:

receiving (200) a user input through the user interface on the electronic device; determining (201 ) a first device identifier based on the user input;

accessing (203) the database to retrieve (204) a first graphical element associated with a first alternative argument value of the first device identifier, said first alternative argument value matching the user input ;

rendering (205) the user input by outputting the retrieved first graphical element.

2. The method according to claim 1 , wherein, upon reception of the user input, the method further comprises detecting (202) an initial argument value in the user input, and wherein the first alternative argument value matches the detected initial argument value.

3. The method according to claim 1 or 2, wherein the method further comprises receiving (200) contextual data with the user input;

wherein the alternative argument values of the first device identifier are filtered using the contextual data, and wherein the first alternative argument value is chosen among the filtered alternative argument values.

4. The method according to one of the preceding claims, wherein the method further comprises receiving (200) contextual data with the user input, and wherein the first device identifier is determined using the contextual data.

5. The method according to claim 3 or 4, wherein the contextual data comprises at least one among:

- location of the user;

- weather forecast data;

- temperature data;

- clock data;

- presence data;

- a user profile; or

- user's rights to access and control remote electronic devices.

6. The method according to the preceding claims, wherein the method further comprises retrieving the other graphical elements that are associated with the alternative argument values of the first device identifier, other than the first alternative argument value;

wherein the first graphical element is a selectable element, the selection by the user of said selectable element outputting at least some of the retrieved graphical elements, and

wherein upon selection (206) of a second graphical element, the first graphical element is replaced by the second graphical element.

7. The method according to one of the preceding claims, further comprising sending (208) an instruction to a remote electronic device identified by the first device identifier, said instruction comprising the argument value associated with the outputted graphical element.

8. The method according to claim 7, wherein the instruction is sent to the remote electronic device upon validation (207) by the user.

9. The method according to one of the preceding claims, wherein the alternative argument values of a given device identifier comprise alternative function values, each alternative function value identifying a function to be performed by a device identified by the first device identifier, wherein the first alternative argument value is a function value.

10. The method according to claim 9, wherein the alternative argument values of a given device identifier further comprise alternative parameter value identifying parameters of functions performed by the device identified by the first device identifier,

and wherein a second graphical element is retrieved from the database, said second graphical element being associated with a second alternative argument value of the first device identifier, said second alternative argument value matching the user input and being an alternative parameter value.

1 1 . The method according to one of the preceding claims, further comprising displaying the graphical element on the remote electronic device.

12. A computer program product recorded on a storage medium and executable by a computer in the form of a software including at least one software module setup to implement the method according to any of claims 1 to 1 1 .

13. An electronic device for managing a remote electronic device using a user interface (401 ), the electronic device being operatively connected to a database associating, for each given device identifier, alternative argument values and graphical elements, wherein the user interface is arranged for receiving a user input, the electronic device comprising a processor (402) arranged for performing the following steps:

determining a first device identifier based on the user input;

accessing the database to retrieve a first graphical element associated with a first alternative argument value of the first device identifier, said first alternative argument value matching the user input ;

rendering the user input by outputting the retrieved first graphical element.

14. A system comprising the electronic device according to claim 13 and a database (13) associating, for each given device identifier, alternative argument values and graphical elements.
