 NetHomeServer

NetHomeServer

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 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.

Current Project Activities

Currently firmware and interface module for the CUL-Tranciever from busware are beeing developed. This will allow control and reception for all devices using both the 433MHz or 868MHz bands for just €40!. See www.busware.de for details of the hardware.

 Power Mid

The CUL-transmitter will also support the PowerMid IR-transmitter working as a bridge to controlling IR-controlled devices!

 Mome Satellite

Peter is working on a Cloud Service for the NetHomeServer called NetHomeSatellite allowing presentation of measurement data and curves via WEB, without having to open up your local firewall.

Supported Systems

NetHomeServer interfaces with a number of avaliable home control systems like:

FS20 The FS20 system for remote control of lamps and appliencies via radio. Read more...

X10 The X10 system for remote control of lamps and appliencies via the mains wires. Read more...

Nexa The Nexa system for remote control of lamps and appliencies via radio. Read more...

UPM The UPM thermometer system for wireless temerature sensors. Read more...
