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.

J/CoMM is an OS independent RS232 remote control. The system has a client/server architecture, has an adjustable HTML GUI, and includes drivers for cameras and beamers (e.g., EIKI LC-XM1/SM1/VM1). The server runs on the computer where the devices are connected via RS232. The client can be any computer having a Web browser, JRE, and access to the device control Web site on the server. The Web page (GUI) communicates with the server through an embedded Java applet (RMI).

Logiclic is a home automation solution. It has just a little kernel (Servlet in Java), and you can add a Manager to this kernel and access it via a Web browser. The manager can exchange services like Tini management, I2C driver, X10 Driver, Switcher Manager, Thermometer, LCD control, etc. With this modular part, you can make your own solution of home automation. It features a neuronal manager and a scripting manager. Documentation is in French.

OWFS (One Wire Filesystem) allows easy control of the 1-Wire bus under Linux. The bus can either be viewed in a Web browser (OWHTTPD) or as files (OWFS). This makes manipulating the 1-wire devices easy with shell scripts, Perl, C, and other programming languages. 1-Wire devices are intriguing chips made by Dallas Semi. They are cheap, uniquely numbered, and take minimal wiring to connect (a data/power line and ground are all that's required. Chip functions include memory, switches, counters, and sensors of temperature and voltage.
