About

BeeeOn.org is an open source and open hardware project aimed for supporting the era of internet of things (IoT). Its goal is to develop a modular, easily extensible and secure system for home control and automation. The system is divided into several parts. On the bottom of the architecture there are end stations, i.e. sensors and actuators. Sensors measure something in the field, for example temperature, humidity, and others. Actuators can be used for doing something interesting, like turning on the light or opening the window, etc. BeeeOn project has its own sensors, but it is also aimed on integration other sensors and actuators from different vendors. Some of already supported are listed on separate web page. Such vendors can utilize several wireless technologies, such as ZigBee, Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc. in their products. These end stations are wirelessly connected to another important part of the system -- the gateway. Project BeeeOn has its own hardware for such gateway, but it is not limited for use on such ones. For example, gateway software can be utilized on your home router, for example this one (in common running OpenWRT or other Linux based system). Responsibility of this software is to secure communication with different end stations, anomaly detection within wireless network and secure bidirectional communication with a farm of servers (or cloud). These servers collect data from sensors for further analysis (e.g. to determine the optimal environment from meteorological sensors). A server also sends various commands to end stations depending on the user or other (e.g. automatic) types of actions. And finally, users can access the whole system via the Android application or by own web interface

Third-party devices

In addition to the BeeeOn sensors and actuators, the system supports a range of devices from other vendors. Please check the list of currently supported third-party sensors and actuators to see if your device is supported.

It is also possible to use your router as the gateway with the USB gateway dongle. This eliminates the need to use a standalone gateway. More information on how to turn your router into a gateway can be found here.
