From OpenEnergyData Wiki

On this page APIs and information about HomeAutomation hubs is gathered.

Many devices in the home are not able to communicate with the ubiquitious technologies like Ethernet or Wifi. Those devices use other protocols that allow them to run on small batteries or without batteries at all. HomeAutomation hubs contain the hardware to transfer from ethernet or wifi to those other protocols.

Relevance for Energy

To operate todays energy efficient buildings efficient it is helpful to control the building technology. Measureing followed by action is therefor ever more important.

Offerings

Herewithin some tools and systems are named that are invented, produced or deployed in Switzerland.

Protocols

Check wikipedia for a thorough list of protocols.

Wireless protocols

  • ZigBee is an open protocol based on 802.15.4. The IPv6 implementation usually happens through 6LoWPAN.
  • Thread by Samsung, ARM and Nest article (en).
  • Bluetooth low energy (BLE) version 4.2 is very low power and IPv6 compatible through the new IPSP profile.
  • Enocean alows battery free sensors and switches/buttons through an extrem low power send-and-forget mode combined with energy harvesting methods based on piezo crystals or temperature differences.

Wireline protocols

Home Hubs

There are some Home Hubs currently released or under development

  • Apple TV (to be announced) with Apple HomeKit
  • Google NEST Thermostat
  • Amazon ECHO
  • Logitech Harmony
  • Rasperry/PI with OpenHAB based on Eclipse Smart Home
  • Synology NAS with OpenHAB

Rapid development toolkits

There are some toolkits that allow rapid development toolkits

  • The Tinkerforge platform is developed after the Arduino style with added simplicity and computing power.
  • Arduino allows rapid development of a great variety of protocols and formats.
  • The Arduino Lightblue Bean Platform is a battery cell based BLE 4.0 platform.
