OpenMotics is a software & hardware platform that automates a house, building or neighbourhood. Via our platform we offer the possibility to link up ALL the various technologies for automation and optimisation. We create one central platform for monitoring, consultation and management of all technologies.
Via our Open Source platform we want to offer an affordable total solution for every resident, owner and home. We do this by combining affordable Open Source hardware with modern software solutions.
The OpenMotics Brain/Brain+ module is the brain of the installation and forms the foundation of an OpenMotics system through its numerous connections.
The Relay module has 8 internal bistable relays that can switch both normal loads and motors for blinds and curtains, or that can be used as potentialfree outputs.
The CAN Control module provides the option to add an extra CAN bus or DALI bus to the OpenMotics installation. A CAN bus is used to connect OpenMotics micro CAN modules to an installation.
The Energy module allows you to monitor up to 12 electricity circuits (230VAC) in detail; both for energy users and energy generators.
We offer a free cloud service to make your house a smart home.
Thanks to the local interface, the OpenMotics system remains active even if the internet connection in your home is interrupted. You can in fact manage your home from the inside without any external connectivity.
OpenMotics offers a user-friendly mobile app for easy management and control of your home automation. You can even customise the application according to your needs and wishes.
Just as you personalise your smartphone by adding apps, so you can personalise your OpenMotics home automation with extensions and integrations such as Google Assistant, Philips Hue … Extra integrations and extensions are added regularly, which is further proof of the flexible nature of OpenMotics.
An open source programme is one in which the source code is open for everyone who wants to improve and/or study it. The possibility that the community is constantly monitoring our platform is what makes open source secure.
Want to know more about the technical details of the system and the possibilities? Take a look at the OpenMotics Wiki. All sources are also available on Github. We would love to hear about how you have adapted the OpenMotics system to suit your own needs!
