Home automation, Internet of Things, these terms are a hot topic these days. "Things" are starting to talk to each other, are internet connected, and are trying to make our lives and not less important, our homes, more comfortable. Which is nice, but, comes at a price.

programmed and often are very complex. Also, you have to play by their rules.
We believe this can be different by using free, open source software.
