Thinux is a thin-client server on a live CD. It boots a network of diskless computers to automatically start an application such as a Web browser. Each thin client machine acts as a cluster node to share its processing and memory resources with each other to take the load off the server. It is a turnkey solution that does not change nor rely on your existing systems to run. By booting from a removable CD, it does not lock-in the user so it is convenient to test. It is ideal for any organizations that require large deployment of software automatically and cost effectively.
mg.applanix is a multi-featured, configurable, Web- and MySQL-based application for management of small and medium-sized accommodation establishments, such as hotels, campsites, hostels, and motels. mg.applanix features an occupancy table for all managed rental objects, a detailed customer information and booking file, a tiny organizer, and customizable printing of bills, address labels, etc. It also provides user-based session management. Users are members of predefined groups which provide a simple access restriction mechanism. Localizations for several languages are available.
This Java Client demonstrates the simplicity of creating a remote control Web-based client/server for home automation control with the WiSH x10dev drivers. The package includes a socket server which runs on the same machine as the x10dev drivers. Java clients are provided which emulate the SmartHome PowerSynnapse tool, emulate the HomeControl GUI, and create a new graphical tool for using a SmartHome Templinc.
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).
YASP is a simple and open protocol for building networks with small microcontrollers. It is designed to have a small footprint for easy implementation with minimal hardware resources, but without sacrifice advanced features and future growth. The protocol scalability is implemented using variable length fields. The physical layer use the NRZ encoding as in RS-232, but using dominant and recessive bus states to provide a reliable way to detect collisions.
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.
DIY Zoning is a set of tools and instructions for controlling a state-of-the-art HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) system. It covers airflow balancing, temperature control and zoning, energy conservation measures, remote access, 1-wire devices, and home automation.
