The reason why many people choose open source software is that it’s completely free and they can modify it however they want. For this software we do not provide direct support though UniPi is compatible. They require EVOK as a layer between them and the hardware itself.
- EVOK – our original software what we keep developing, updating and we will always support it. It is a thin layer between hardware and more complex software (FHEM, Node-RED, custom-made scripts etc.). Suitable for developers and their own software.
- FHEM – server software for home automation. Provides the best compatibility with all controllable hardware in Europe. Perfect for solutions combining wired and wireless technology. We provide premade package in our e-shop for easy installation. Made in Germany.
- Node-RED – Open source platform developed by IBM. Easily programmable, quick development, allows visual programming. It has a huge library of blocks allowing to connect together many services and hardware. It is the best software for cloud solutions.
- PiDome – Another open source platform which excels in user friendliness but is also satisfying for advanced users. Allows quick and easy development.
- Domoticz – an open source platform for home automation control. Its web user interface is made in HTML5 and all browsers are supported. It supports multiple operating systems, either desktop or mobile and allows alerts and notifications.
- Pimatic – a home automation framework that runs on node.js. It provides a common extensible platform for home control and automation tasks. It has uniform interface, is web-based, offers automation rules and supports extensions.
- DomotiGa – DomotiGa is and open source software created for home automation control from Netherlands. It was made for Linux and is programmed in Gambas Basic. It can be along with the server can be controlled with a web client and from iPhone or Android.
Commercial solution (we provide the support for it)
These platforms provide professional solutions for advanced users and suitable for more complex projects. Customers who choose this software in their UniPi Building Set or UniPi Industrial Set have it installed already and we provide full support for it. They include thin layer for communication with hardware along with more complex functions..
- Mervis – our official software. It is normalized IEC 61131-3 and together with UniPi makes professional PLC cheaper than other alternatives. Customer will recieve runtime program, fully-featured IDE and HMI editor for web user interface design and 10 data points for free stored in database for the lifetime.
Commercial solutions (we are compatible, they provide support)
These platforms are compatible with UniPi and are developed and update by private companies and we do not install them and do not provide direct support. These also require EVOK as a communication layer between more advance code and pure hardware.
- CODESYS – is a software platform especially designed for use in modern industrial automation projects. Its development system is made in accordance with IEC 61131-3 standard for PLC software programming.
- REX control system – commercial platform suitable for industrial solutions. Of all software provides the quickest communication and is suitable for real-time projects. Programmed via vast library of blocks and allows visual programming.
- Wyliodrin – offers free lite version, user-friendly platform. Allows visual programming and quick development.
- HomeSeer - very user-friendly platform made in the USA.
