GNU Phantom.Home is a computer controlled home automation system. The software includes a circuit diagram for building the Phantom.Home.Controller, a simple circuit board that attaches to your PC's parallel port. Using the combination of hardware/software you can control (i.e. flip on or off) nearly any 120V device. And with a little bit of electronics know-how, you can probably control nearly any device at any voltage by modifying the circuit board to meet your needs. The simple circuit included can be created and built for around $25. The modules cost around $10 (basically a heavy duty relay).

GNU Phantom.Security is a computer-controlled security system. Using the software and a simple circuit board (diagram included) that you build, you can create a good basic security system that is computer controlled. The system can use off-the-shelf security devices like motion sensors, door magnets, and fire/smoke detectors with little to moderate modification. You can have a total of 5 devices per port. And if the machine the system is running on is connected to a LAN/WAN or the Internet, you can have it send e-mail. If you have a pager or cell phone capable of receiving e-mail, then you will have around the clock intrusion/fire detection for your home or office.

DirectFB is a thin library that provides developers with hardware graphics acceleration, input device handling and abstraction, an integrated windowing system with support for translucent windows and multiple display layers on top of the Linux framebuffer device. It is a complete hardware abstraction layer with software fallbacks for every graphics operation that is not supported by the underlying hardware.

Device::ParallelPort is a Perl API that allows low level access to the parallel port of most computers. It does this by using a number of drivers, which can be customized and added to, including Linux (direct and parport), Win32, Script, Dummy, and more. It also contains a number of direct access devices including an example printer and a relay controller card.

PAUS is a system for controlling stuff with simple event-based Perl scripts. It can be used for controlling your house, creating an alert system, or making a remote controlled mp3 player. It is a flexible project that "merges" other I/O projects together, such as lirc (remote control), lcdproc (LCD output), mpg123 (mp3 player), and various I/O boards (such as the K8000). It's modular, extensible, multi-threaded, and has networking support.

IControl interprets signals from Creative's RM-900 remote control and the accompanying IR LiveDrive! receiver unit. It is currently capable of sending input to various programs (including XMMS, Xine, XawTV, and XScreensaver), as well as circulating window stacking order (sending windows to the background), and changing input focus. It is completely configurable, allowing the user to map any key to any action the daemon supports. Support for other remote controls is planned.

x10dev provides a /dev interface to an X10 network through a combination of Linux kernel modules and daemons. It is intended to provide a standard interface and syntax to shell script utilities (such as cat and echo), Perl scripts, C programs, or Java programs so that everything from a quick hack to a more advanced program can manipulate the X10 devices in an automated home regardless of the transceiver used. Its simplest use is with shell scripts (examples of which are provided in the package). Currently the project supports the 3 X10 transceivers (PowerLinc Serial, PowerLinc USB, and CM11A).
