Freedomotic is an open source, flexible, secure Internet of Things (IoT) development framework, useful to build and manage modern smart spaces. It is targeted to private individuals (home automation) as well as business users (smart retail environments, ambient aware marketing, monitoring and analytics, ...).
Freedomotic can interact with well known standard building automation protocols as well as with "do it yourself" solutions. It treats the web, social networks and branded frontends as first class components of the system.
How can you use Freedomotic?
It allows you to build smart spaces. Freedomotic can manage from small apartments to huge buildings, like museums, schools, corporate offices, malls and university campuses. For OEMs and software developers Freedomotic is the solution to easily create building automation systems, smart retail environments, home automation managed services and innovative IoT ambient aware applications, drastically reducing development effort and time to market.
Freedomotic can be integrated with popular building automation technologies like BTicino OpenWebNet, KNX, Modbus RTU, Z-wave as well as custom automation projects using Arduino devices, do it yourself boards, third party graphical frontends (like this one for Android), text to speech engines, motion detection using IP cameras stream, social networks (for example Twitter), and much more... All this features can be delivered from a marketplace (you can build your own) as downloadable plugins.
Where it can run
Freedomotic can run on any OS with Java support (Linux, Windows, Mac, …). It can be deployed to the cloud, to servers, to a single standard PC, a PCs network, a network of embedded devices like Raspberry Pi (try it!), or a mixture of the previous, creating a distributed network.
When it will be available
Freedomotic is actually a working beta but is growing rapidly with the suppport of our community. We are a real open source project. You can help us contributing in many ways, you don't need to be a software developer to join us!
How does it works
Freedomotic is an open source building and home automation framework distributed under GNU GPL2 license. Freedomotic leverages modern enterprise integration patterns and distributed computing architectures, along with json APIs for extension.
