Nethome Server, Icon by Archigraphs (Cyberella)


The NetHomeServer is a software/hardware project for home automation. The core functionality of the home automation server is to integrate functions like lamp control, temperature measurements and control of audio and video equipment into one framework where it is possible to mix and match devices from different vendors and build features which integrate functions from all kind of units. The core is a server program which is easy to install and runs on Windows and Linux (probably on many others as well)

Components, Icon by Archigraphs (Cyberella) The server itself is written as a set of loosley coupled modules which exposes an interface consisting of attributes and methods. The modules are connected to a common message bus where they can listen for events in the system and send events when something happens. Here you can see an index of the modules that are currently avaliable.
