    Default Freedomotic Open Source home Automation

    Freedomotic is an open source building automation software (eg. home automation) distributed under GPL2 license, written in Java. The project aims to develope an open source extensible framework for intelligentbuilding automation.

    Freedomotic can actually interact with X10 devices, Android, Arduino and much more. Freedomotic is a peer-to-peer distrubuted building automation framework with automatic load balancing; it can be deployed on a network of low-cost hardware nodes like BeagleBoard (creating a domotics VPN) or on a single standard PC.

    If you are a professional developer or interested in do it yourself (DIY) building automation, Freedomotic can help to easely create your own building automation system without starting from scratch

    Freedomotic Building Automation Project is hosted on GoogleCode:

    Really interested in this. I've had a quick look, however, and can't seem to find any tutorials regarding setting up a new environment (ie. not the DISI Domotics APplication Lab)?

    I may be missing something, I'll try again when at home when I have all my stuff connected

    Default New Freedomotic version released

    The version 5.0 was released.
    Please visit http://freedomotic.com for more details.

    Freedomotic is an open source building and home automation software written in Java.

    The aim of the project is to build a data mashup oriented building automation framework for seamless integration of building and home automation technologies, mobile, web and social networks. Freedomotic leverages modern distributed computing architectures, and provides crosslanguage APIs for extension.
    How it works

    Freedomotic supports popular building automation technologies like BTicino OpenWebNet, KNX, Modbus RTU, X10 as well as custom automation projects using Arduino devices, do it yourself (DIY) boards, third party Android frontends, text to speech (TTS) engines, motion detection using IP cameras, social networks integration like Twitter, and much more... All this features are deliverd as downloadable plugins from our marketplace.

    WHO CAN BE INTERESTED
    Private Users: Tired of incompatible, expensive automation technologies and remotes everywhere? Learn why automate your home with freedomotic.

    Business Users: Museums, shops, offices,...? Learn how to create innovative services for your customers with freedomotic.

    Developers & Organizations: Freedomotic can be easily extended with cross-language plugins. If you want to develop a plugin for an automation protocol, integrate your own "do it yourself" Arduino board or create a custom frontend for Android with your brand take a look here.

    WHERE CAN IT RUN
    Freedomotic can run on any OS with Java support (Linux, Windows, Mac, ). It can be deployed on a single standard PC, a PCs network, a network of embedded devices like BeagleBoard to create a set-top-box, or a mixture of the previous.

    WHEN WILL BE AVAILABLE
    Freedomotic is actually a working beta but is growing rapidly with the suppport of our community. We are searching for contributors and you can contribute in many way, development or not, let us know writing to mauro@freedomotic.com

    Hi to all
    our developer Gabriel has released a new version of the Android client for Freedomotic.

    At this moment the client should work on 2.2+ android clients, tablets or smartphones (tested on a ics tablet and on a 2.3.5 smartphone Galaxy S).

    An external broker with the stomp endpoint configured must be used. At this moment the included broker doesn't configure correctly the stomp.

    The floorplan view at this moment is in development, it allows pitch and zoom, move, and select an object. However because the ongoing change of the imageProvider on Freedomotic, some images doesn't show (black rectangle). The use of the images is a problem at this moment of the restapi as it is not capable of serve it correctly.

    Also, when an object is selected on the floorplant on a tablet (land mode) at this moment it shows the object data on almost all the screen, it will be changed. However ideas about how to use the floorplan on tablets, flows or mockups are welcome

    Again, the "theme" of the app is not decided jet, so again, ideas At this moment the client is capable of select objects, change objects values, and it auto-refresh changes from the bus.

    REMEMBER: THIS IS A PRELIMINARY VERSION

    Take a look at http://code.google.com/p/freedomotic-android-client/

    We need your help for graphics, suggestions, coding and so on.
    Stay tuned!

    Hello,
    for some versions we want to focus our own work on the optimization of the framework features we already have.

    We've uploaded a new daily build if you want to try a first draft of the optimization work (http://code.google.com/p/freedomotic...ld-5.2.397.zip).
    Changelog:
    MOST NOTABLE CHANGE: created a new example environment with static background and topology layer over it
    created new timed triggers that starts on freedomotic startup (to stop/restart double click on clock plugin)
    stomp connnector now works in embedded broker also from LAN
    now messages are serialized to XML only when they leave the local JVM (eg: delivered to STOMP clients) otherwise they are dispatched at the same speed as java method calls
    rebuild of rest plugin. To test it point your browser to http://localhost:8111/v1/environment/
    changed the snap to guide from 25cm to 5cm in environment editing mode
    only valid objects are displayed in the list of available objects (click the combobox over the plugin list and choose "Object")
    ported light object class to the latest framework version. Light on the map now are "Light" no "ElectricDevice" so you can dimm them.
    Also freedom.exe and the related start-freedom.sh are not in this NOT FEATURED version so to start it you have to go to terminal/cmd and type

    java -jar freedomotic.jar

    you can try with double click on freedomotic.jar file first but it can fail so you are warned
    Regards

    SOME SCREENSHOTS

    Hi to all!
    We have released the first prototype of Freedomotic GWT client. Now it has very few features but it's growing.
    This is a web application to be deployed on the webserver plugin

    -JDK must be 1.6
    -You need the last dailybuild of freedomotic, or a git clone. (at least git sha >1442175 ). Download from http://code.google.com/p/freedomotic/downloads/list
    -The RestApi plugin must be installed (it is already included on the dailybuild or compile it from code, the marketplace version would not work)
    -The webserver plugin must be installed (it is already included on the dailybuild)
    -The war file must be extracted and copied to the folder es.gpulido.webserver/data/webapps/gwt_client/ on the webserver plugin

    It uses websockets, so a chrome browser, firefox>=11 or Iexplorer>=10 is needed (or any browser that implements the websockets feature)
    We are testing the client on different platforms so we need your help.
    Please test it and reports some info as

    -operating system (version, service pack for windows)
    -browser (version number)
    -java (version)

    FOR DEVELOPERS: the source code is available at http://code.google.com/p/freedomotic...clients%2Ffree...

    There is a lot of work to do so if you want to contribute please contact us.
    Thanks
