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.
A typical OpenMotics Home Automation and/or Power Measurement installation requires an external 12VDC power supply.
We’ve selected the perfect one for the job: with its compact size you reduce the need for a big fuse box and its efficient as well!
The Output module is the work horse of your home automation platform: with its built in relays it can toggle up to eight electrical circuits (lights, outlets, etc.) or four shutters/blinds (4x up down).
The Temperature module enables you to connect up to 8 sensors. The available sensors consist of multiple combinations of temperature, light and humidity sensors to suit your needs.
The Input module features 8 inputs that relay information to your home
automation installation. Connect switches, motion detectors, pulse counter contacts, magnet contacts, etc.
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!
