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.
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).
Javacelot is a Java utility for communicating with an Adicon Ocelot over the serial port. It uses Keane Jarvi's RXTX utility for raw serial port I/O, Jakarta's Log4J for logging, and Ant for building. Javacelot mainly adds a friendly API for triggering and responding to X10, infrared, and other Ocelot signals. It's not an application in itself, but a tool to facilitate the creation of Java-based home automation applications, especially heavily threaded Web-based applications.
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.
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.
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.
