Open Source Home Automation

More and more new cool devices and technologies arrive at our homes every day. But though they are all aimed at enhancing our lifestyle they all lack one important feature: a common language they could speak to each other to create a really automated and smart environment at home. The main goal of openHAB is to provide an integration platform to fix this issue.

openHAB is a software for integrating different home automation systems and technologies into one single solution that allows over-arching automation rules and that offers uniform user interfaces.

This means openHAB
  1. is designed to be absolutely vendor-neutral as well as hardware/protocol-agnostic
  2. can run on any device that is capable of running a JVM (Linux, Mac, Windows)
  3. lets you integrate an abundance of different home automation technologies into one
  4. has a powerful rule engine to fulfill all your automation needs
  5. comes with different web-based UIs as well as native UIs for iOS and Android
  6. is fully open source
  7. is maintained by a passionate and growing community
  8. is easily extensible to integrate with new systems and devices
  9. provides APIs for being integrated in other systems
