Product Details

OpenHAB is a longstanding open-source home automation system that comes also with a powerful supporting community. OpenHAB has a plugins-ready architecture which helps developers to add new devices or integrate new services. It also has a developer-friendly REST-API, custom design with time and event-based triggers, notification service, and VoiceUI-powered control.

OpenHAB runs on Linux, Windows and macOS, but it also can run on Raspberry PI, Pine64 and Docker. It offers mobile apps for Android-based devices and iOS app for iPhone and iPad.

With OpenHAB, the user does not require cloud to run if the user requires a restricted system to protect his privacy, but its developers ensure its a cloud-friendly system if the user requires. In short, OpenHAB can support Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, IFTTT, and Apple HomeKit. To make OpenHAB ready for the cloud OpenHAB offers a cloud version that can be hosted on their service or the user can host it on his server.

Some of openHAB's strengths are:

  • Its ability to integrate a multitude of other devices and systems. openHAB includes other home automation systems, (smart) devices and other technologies into a single solution
  • To provide a uniform user interface and a common approach to automation rules across the entire system, regardless of the number of manufacturers and sub-systems involved
  • Giving you the most flexible tool available to make almost any home automation wish come true; if you can think it, odds are that you can implement it with openHAB.

Features of openHAB

  • Remote Access - Access your local openHAB instances securely without having to expose ports to the Internet or requiring a complex VPN setup.

  • 3rd Party App Integration - Connect your openHAB smart home to cloud-based platforms and services such as IFTTT, Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.
