We are looking for platform in for Homo automation . We could use any FREE open source a long as it has the required features:
.- We did not expect to create from scratch, what we expect is something we could customize to use. And MUST be FREE platform (no cost anytime).
.- We could add devices in an easy way, with details such as room, device, status.
.- Could work thru an web URL. But we need an adaptive design. That means it must work using tablets, ipads, cellphone (iphone and android), computers. If needed to be customized we need to use php.
.- Need to work inside a local network (not using internet) and also from outside the local network using thru internet. We are not sure how it will work to have local area network access, and also internet access. But if needed to mount a server (prefer not) it need to be 1 Server to handle many houses, having them with user and password. But again we prefer that devices itself work as server, could be a raspberry, arduino or other device.
.- We need a way to reset access password in case the user forget it WITHOUT loosing the previous setups & devices. It could be any idea to restore the password, example a click in a device or connecting to the same local network or any valid idea.
.- We need FULL detailed instructions on how to setup devices (such as raspberry, arduino o any standalone device that is related to operation). In case of server installation needed is expected to receive a step by step detailing package setup. Nothing will be received as you must know.
.- Use common open standard. We do not want to be restricted to buying specific brands and not expensive devices. Must work with simple compatible brands.
.- ON/OFF Lights: 1 by 1 or ALL OFF
.- Open/Close Blinds or garage door
.- ON/OFF devices attached to wall plug socket (or by extension socket)
.- Define schedules for ON/OFF Lights and plug sockets, open/close blinds and garage door.
.- If possible read room temperature
.- Play different Music in different rooms
.- Additional to schedule do the same but according to conditions such as temperature, daylight and others.
.- Speech controlled operation
.- Alarm functions integration (sensors, door/window open)
.- Access security cams
Coders that BID must tell the following, without the, will not be considered:
1.- Which platform the plan to use
2.- Which devices will be needed
3.- BID amount
4.- REAL Time needed to finish project
5.- How they will make it work inside local network and also from internet
.- Could add any other comment if needed.
