Detection rules represent one of the components of the rule models in event processing systems. These rules can be discovered from data using data mining techniques or domain experts’ knowledge. We  demonstrate a system that provides its users the means for creating and validating such rules. The system is applied on real-life environmental scenarios, where the main source of data comes from sensors. Based on historical data about events of interest, the scope is to formulate rules that could have caused these events. Using a scalable infrastructure the rules can be tested on massive amount of data in order to observe how past events would fit to these rules. In addition, we create semantic annotations of the dataset and use them in the system outputs in order to support interoperability with other systems.
