home-automation (13)



BlueLava
BlueLava is a Web and WAP (CGI-based) x10 interface. Using commandline-based x10 tools as its backend, it allows you to control x10-compliant electronics and x10 modules from within a Web browser or a WAP/WML-enabled device. Uses of BlueLava include the remote control of lamps, appliances, and other electronics via the Internet.

DIY Zoning
DIY Zoning is a set of tools and instructions for controlling a state-of-the-art HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) system. It covers airflow balancing, temperature control and zoning, energy conservation measures, remote access, 1-wire devices, and home automation.

Lintouch-Runtime
'Lintouch' is a realtime visual control center software suite (known as HMI or MMI in the automation industry). It features a server-client architecture that is extensible via a plug-in architecture; this makes it possible to define new connectivity on the server side (ModBus/TCP, SNMP, Profinet, etc) and to define new control and visualization primitives on the client side (PushButtons, Lamps, TemperatureMonitors, Conveyers, and Elevators).

Lintouch-Server
'Lintouch' is a realtime visual control center software suite (known as HMI or MMI in the automation industry). It features a server-client architecture that is extensible via a plug-in architecture; this makes it possible to define new connectivity on the server side (ModBus/TCP, SNMP, Profinet, etc) and to define new control and visualization primitives on the client side (PushButtons, Lamps, TemperatureMonitors, Conveyers, and Elevators).

Listener
'listener' is a security-related program like 'motion' (which detects motion on a Webcam): it listens for sound. If it detects any, it starts recording until the sound stops (or a bit later, which is configurable). It stores the audio in .WAV files

MisterHouse
MisterHouse is a home automation program. It responds to voice commands, Web browsers, time of day, serial port and X10 data, external files, etc., and can speak via Text to Speech engines.

Mvc
'mvc' is a text mode v4l video capture program that features motion detection. It is very small and easy to use, and can be used to monitor and record the people that enter your room.

PAUS - Perl AUtomation System
PAUS is a system for controlling stuff with simple event-based Perl scripts. It can be used for controlling your house, creating an alert system, or making a remote controlled mp3 player. It is a flexible project that merges other I/O projects together, such as lirc (remote control), lcdproc (LCD output), mpg123 (mp3 player), and various I/O boards (such as the K8000). It's modular, extensible, multi-threaded, and has networking support.

Phantom home Heckert gnu.small.png
GNU Phantom.Home is a computer controlled home automation system. The software includes a circuit diagram for building the Phantom.Home.Controller, a simple circuit board that attaches to your PC's parallel port. Using the combination of hardware/software you can control (ie flip on and off) nearly any 120v device. With a little bit of electronics know-how, you can probably control nearly any device at any voltage by modifying the circuit boards to meet your needs. The simple circuit included can be created and built for around $25.00. The modules cost around $10.00 (basically a heavy duty relay). Phantom Home is now compatible with HDML, so if you have an HDML wireless phone you can use it to operate the system.

Phantom security Heckert gnu.small.png
GNU Phantom.Security is a computer-controlled security system. Using the software and a simple circuit board (diagram included) that you build, you can create a good basic security system that is computer controlled. The system can use off-the-shelf security devices like motion sensors, door magnets, and fire/smoke detectors with little to moderate modification. You can have a total of 5 devices per port. If the machine the system is running on is connected to a LAN/WAN or the Internet, you can have it send email. If you have a pager or cell phone capable of receving email, you will then have around the clock intrusion/fire detection for your home or office.
