This Page will describe the functionality of the system and the different modules


Introduction

The OpenMotics home automation platform consists of DIN rail Modules typically installed in the fuse box. Each Module has a specific purpose: receive input, toggle electrical circuits, control external dimmers, etc. The different modules are interconnected by a RS485 bus. The Gateway is the brains of the system containing 2 different systems inside: The Master Computer (Microchip 18F67J11 controller board) and the Gateway computer (Linux based Beagle Bone Black). The Master computer houses all different home automation functions (Lights, outputs, stores, Temperature/humidity/brightness, thermostats, intelligent functions etc) where the Gateway computer will take care of the secure communication to the outside world and the programming of the different functions in the Master Computer.
