Cut the Gordian knot – The QIVICON eco system for smart home

Session Type: 
Standard Talk [25 minutes]
Speakers

There are lot of products available for smart homes – from do-it-yourself packages up to professional, exclusive or industrial solutions. Most of the available products are silo based – no easy integration of additional devices from multiple manufacturers, no additional wireless or wired communication options. Even the software environments are closed, customers are restricted to the available applications / configurations of their product provider.

Home Automation for Geeks

Session Type: 
Standard Talk [25 minutes]
Speakers

There are by now many commercial offerings with OSGi-based service gateways, but most of them do not go beyond the primitive use cases of an "All off" button or reducing the room temperature at night.

openHAB takes you much further than that: While running on small and cheap embedded devices like the Raspberry Pi, you can explore the world of Home Automation beyond the ordinary: Do a presence simulation with the push of a button; see live charts of your sensor data and adjust your irrigation schedule through Google calendar. openHAB is meant for geeks: It comes with a powerful, Xbase-based scripting language, which allows to easily define every kind of automation logic you could possibly have in mind. Through its modular OSGi architecture it is furthermore very easily extendible, so that it can connect to a multitude of different systems.

This session will demonstrate some of the advanced features of openHAB and introduce the core concepts behind it.

Adaptive in-production monitoring of an OSGi Smart Home box

Session Type: 
Extended Talk [55 minutes]
Speakers

A new world of applications emerges in the home thanks to the growing variety of sensors and actuators available. Several application domains are considered, e.g., security, energy efficiency, comfort, ambient assisted living, multimedia communication. As the whole range of devices and applications is not foreseeable, one great challenge lies in the deployment and maintenance of a software environment embedded on a Home box open to third party applications.
