Hocuspocus is a small and extensible Web server for controlling key Linux applications via a Web server. This means you can adjust things like system volume from any browser, including a WiFi enabled PDA such as the iPhone. Multiple such servers can be controlled via a single service manager, enabling whole home remote control.
Cerberus-Prox is backend software for an inexpensive, easy-to-build hardware system that implements a functional door access control system. It supports HID clock-and-data prox card readers. A MySQL database (or theoretically any JDBC) is used for data storage. RXTX is used for serial port communication.
pichart is a GUI for pigrammar, an assembler and programmer for picloader-programmed devices. pichart offers a user-friendly interface, making programming PIC chips easy. It looks like a flow chart designer and permits operations like reading from the device's serial port, writing on it, setting ports' value, and setting timers. It also permits programming directly during execution.
mochad is a TCP gateway daemon for the X10 CM15A RF (radio frequency) and PL (power line) controller, the CM15Pro RF and PL controller, and the CM19A RF controller. The CM15Pro is the EU version of the CM15A. PL support includes extended dim and status query. Standard RF modules such as motion sensors and remote controls are supported. DS10A and MS10A RF security modules are supported. Ninja pan/tilt camera mounts can be controlled from mochad. The command line interface is well-suited for CGI scripts and cron jobs. mochad works well on embedded Linux systems such as OpenWRT and Chumby, so a PC is not required for always-on applications.
OpenNetHome is a home automation software project with a focus on being able to mix different technologies. It currently supports a number of different RF transceivers for controlling remote switches and receiving temperature and moisture data. It also supports Philips Hue lights. Its user interface is Web based, but all features are also accessible via a TCP/IP interface. It supports plugins for new features but also for new protocol encoders/decoders. Also included is a signal analyzer tool for reverse engineering new RF protocols.
