The piMyHome Project
piMyHome is a fast web application for the Bticino/Legrand home automation system, running on a Raspberry Pi, a credit card sized and cheap mini computer platform. piMyHome is not a commercial project, it's completely open source and free for anybody. Developers who want to join us are very welcome.
piMyHome is still in early development and not ready yet. Our first public release is expected in November 2015.
|2015-02-11||Monitor daemon for who 1, 2 and 4 is almost done.
Realized in python3, addresses and other static data are stored in sqlite3. States are stored in redis key-value cache. Slim and very fast. Running on RaspberryPi with Raspian Jessie.
|2015-05-15||Event daemon working. Pushover alarm notification implemented.|
|2015-11-05||Started GUI development with a second approach using Tornado. Admin interface will remain in Django for easier handling of databases and authentication. Multi-language implemented.|
- A monitor daemon is fetching OWN messages from your Bticino gateway and stores the state of each device (light, shutter, heating etc.) in a Redis value cache.
- An event daemon watches what's going on and launches a user-defined action when an event is triggered. The action launched can be anything, not just limited to the bticino system.
- A nice and responsive web multi-language frontend to manage your home automation with any device capable of browsing html pages, such as a smartphone, tablet, desktop PC, or XMBC (TV).
- Access control for users and groups.
- Each user can have his own environment and favorites.
- Completely managed via browser, no programming skills required.
