When we added our Home Automation Technology Choices page a few weeks ago we got emails asking us to consider some other systems.
Amongst them was a new free and open source home automation application called “Domoticz”. Design to control various devices and receive input from various sensors around the home, the main hardware at the centre of the setup is an RF Receiver/Transmitter from RFXCOM
. Domoticz supports Linux/Unix, Windows as well as embedded devices. The GUI is a scalable HTML5 web frontend, and is automatically adapted for Desktop and Mobile Devices and the developers say it is compatible with all browsers.
- Supported Hardware: RFXCOM Transceiver, P1 Smart Meter, YouLess Meter
- Extended logging
- iPhone / Android push notifications
- Auto Learning sensors/switches
- Manual creation of switch codes
- Share / Use external devices
- Designed for simplicity
