Freedomotic is an open source, flexible, secure Internet of Things (IoT) development framework, useful to build and manage modern smart spaces. It is targeted to private individuals (home automation) as well as business users (smart retail environments, ambient aware marketing, monitoring and analytics, etc).

Freedomotic can interact with well known standard building automation protocols as well as with "do it yourself" solutions. It treats the web, social networks and branded frontends as first class components of the system.

How can you use Freedomotic?

It allows you to build smart spaces. Freedomotic can manage from small apartments to huge buildings, like museums, schools, corporate offices, malls and university campuses. For OEMs and software developers Freedomotic is the solution to easily create building automation systems, smart retail environments, home automation managed services and innovative IoT ambient aware applications, drastically reducing development effort and time to market.


Freedomotic can be integrated with popular building automation technologies like BTicino OpenWebNet, KNX, Modbus RTU, Z-wave as well as custom automation projects using Arduino devices, do it yourself boards, third party graphical frontends, text to speech engines, motion detection using IP cameras stream, social networks, and much more... All this features can be delivered from a marketplace as downloadable plugins.
