Despite the buzz around the Internet of Things (IoT) there are still many devices, systems and protocols for home automation that cannot be directly hooked up to your wifi and used through IP.
To enable smartphone apps to access them and to integrate them with other devices, an IP gateway is required – if it connects to more than just one specific system, this is usually called a home gateway.
Eclipse SmartHome is a flexible software framework for such home gateways. Being initiated by the popular open-source project openHAB, the Eclipse SmartHome project leads the way from the niche to the mass market by fostering industry adoption and by introducing new concepts for setup and configuration procedures of such solutions.
In this webinar you will learn about the concepts of Eclipse SmartHome, what services it provides and how to build a customized solution with it.
The Internet of Things is not merely a buzzword, it’s a fast expanding fact.
With an ever-rising variety of devices on the market to help you automate, protect, and monitor your property, it has never been simpler nor more tempting to try your hand at home automation. Whether you’re expecting to manage your HVAC(Heating Ventilating Air Conditioning) system from another location, add in a home entertainment, safeguard your home from stealing, fire, or other threats, reduce your energy use, or perhaps control a small number of lights, there are loads of devices offered at your grasp.
While connected devices oftentimes contain personal components, a good starting point in bringing open source into your home automation system is to ensure that the device which ties your devices together-and presents you with an interface to them (the “hub”)-is open source. The good news is, there are many different options in existence, with options to run on everything from your always-on computer to a Raspberry Pi.
Have a look at a portion of our preferred.
Calaos is designed as a full-stack home automation platform, together with a server application, touchscreen interface, web application, native mobile phone applications for android and ios, and a preconfigured Linux operating system to run underneath. English speaking readers should be advised that, while some English documentation is accessible, a portion of the instructional material together with support community forums are primarily in French.
Calaos is licensed under version 3 of the GPL and you can view its source on GitHub. https://github.com/calaos
Domoticz is a home automation system with a very wide collection of supported devices, including weather stations to smoke detectors to remote controls, with a countless number of added third party integrations documented on the project’s site. It is designed with an HTML5 frontend, rendering it reachable from both desktop computer browsers as well as most modern cell phones, and is light-weight, running on various low power devices just like the Raspberry Pi.
Domoticz is written chiefly in C/C++ under the GPLv3, and its source code can be found on GitHub. https://github.com/domoticz/domoticz
Home Assistant is an open source home automation platform, and is designed to be quickly deployed on essentially any machine which could run Python 3, from a Raspberry Pi to a NAS system, and even arrives with a Docker container to make deploying on other systems so easy. It combines with a great number of open source and also business oriented products, which means you can link, for example, IFTTT, weather information, or perhaps your Amazon Echo device, to handles from locks to lights to even a command line notifier.
Home Assistant is released under an MIT license, and its source is available from GitHub. https://github.com/balloob/home-assistant
OpenHAB (short for Open Home Automation Bus) is among the most famous home automation tools among open source fanatics, with a large user community and a good number of supported devices and integrations. Written in Java, openHAB is transportable across most major systems and in addition runs effectively on the Raspberry Pi. Supporting many devices, openHAB is designed to be device-agnostic while making it easier for developers to add their own devices or plugins to the system. OpenHAB also ships android and ios apps for device control, and a design tools so you’re able to produce your own UI for your smart home system.
You’ll find openHAB’s source on GitHub licensed under the Eclipse Public License. https://github.com/openhab/openhab
OpenMotics is a smart home automation system with both hardware and software under open source licenses, designed at providing an in depth system for managing devices rather than stitching together many devices from various providers. In contrast to several of the other systems designed chiefly for simple retrofitting, OpenMotics concentrates on a traditional hardwired solution. For much more, see our full article from OpenMotics backend developer Frederick Ryckbosch.
The source for OpenMotics is licensed under the GPLv2 and is readily available for download on GitHub. https://github.com/openmotics
These aren’t the only available choices, needless to say. Loads of home automation hobbyists opt for a various solution, or perhaps prefer to roll their very own. Several other potential choices to think of include things like LinuxMCE, PiDome, MisterHouse or smarthomatic. Other folks go for personal smart home devices without adding them into a single well-rounded system.
