Supervision System for Home automation or micro-DOMOTIC

The implementation of Smart Homes is now simplified by the development of telecommunication technologies for high-speed Internet and Intranet, such as DSL or cable, but also the appearance of complete and reliable systems (SCADA type) at reduced costs. Indeed, home automation, remote monitoring (video surveillance and audio surveillance) and building automation are accessible by "Open Source" software. Stantor natively integrates the concept of M2M (Machine to Machine through the "Internet of Things"). It uses the latest telecommunications technologies and WEB: ADSL , Fiber optic cable, I-Mode, , WiFi, PLC, SOAP protocol, Websockets-HTML5 protocol, AJAX, WEB services, XML/SVG, smartphone controls, WAP2.x (xHTML-MP)...to connect electronic devices of various origins (Webcams, electronic system on "open hardware", embedded devices, electric meters, etc..). The installation of telecommunications equipment performance in the home opened the door to new services. This networking of microcomputers personal or professional can consider a permanent use 24/24 H of Web servers, data servers and application servers to low costs.

After microcomputer PC -> The personal server for smart homes.

In addition the existence of tested electronic boards currently makes it possible to connect the various sensors or actuators of the field of the home automation to a microcomputer functioning on standard operating system and using such standard software packages them. These software packages either being sold by editors or free of right (freeware).

The marriage of the home automation and the WEB technology gives rise to the:

micro Domotic or e-Domotic

The project STANTOR for "Système de Télésurveillance Automatique par iNTernet d''Objets en Réseau" is a platform of open supervision for receiving, manage and interact in real time from various manufacturers of equipment for automation. This project offers a teleprocessing of the various equipment of buildings for dwellings or offices realized by a technical chain of low cost whose robustness of the elementary components is proven.

STANTOR is a OPEN SOURCE project (licence - GPL). It is consultable under "sourceforge.net".

This product implements a core software offering all the functions of monitoring and control equipment connected to one or more micro-computers over networks using the standard TCP/IP (Internet / Intranet with IPv4 and IPv6, I-mode, WAP2). Opening towards buses of ground the such the powerline communications (Home plug..), the radio operator networks with short range (WiFi, ZigBee, 6LowPan, wireless USB,...) is an essential component of the future development of this project.

General description

The architecture of the system is of type 3 tier + including:

  • A tool for dialogue navigator WEB (Firefox, IE, Safari,...) and micro-navigators (I-Mode, Opera WAP2).
  • A Web server Apache.
  • A database server MySQL/MariaDB.
  • A server for the specific applications.
  • One or more microcomputer hardware drivers.

The assembly can be located on a single physical computer or in the "Cloud". In the case of "Cloud", the computers supporting the database, web server and specific applications are located in a host site (eg: ISP - internet service provider, private datacenter, etc ...). Only the computers controlling the devices (sensors, actuators,..) will remain close to the equipment.

Description of the main components essential or optional.

  • USB interface board K8061/VM140 for acquisition and control, connected to micro-computer.
  • USB interface board K8055/VM110 for acquisition and control , connected to micro-computer.
  • USB interface board Arduino ("Open Hardware") for acquisition and control, connected to micro-computer.
  • Ethernet or WiFi interface board Arduino ("Open Hardware") for acquisition and control , connected to micro-computer.
  • I2C interface board K8000 for acquisition and control, connected to micro-computer.
  • Module of X10 control (protocol of the data exchanges per transmission current on the electrical supply network 220V/110V).
  • Analog sensors and switches on a 1-Wire bus.
  • USB Webcams. Infrared remote control with interface board.
  • Sound cards.
  • Connections with electronic electricity meters of “bleu” type within the framework of energy saving.
  • Navigators Firefox, IE, Safari, Opera.... allow to visualize the states of the sensors and allow to order the actuators through forms.
  • Micro-navigators cHTML for I-Mode and WML compatible with standard WAP 2 and WAP 1.1. established in the mobile telephones give access functions similar to the navigators WEB.
  • The data base used is mySQL with modules of the accesses written in PHP. It records digital and numerical informations.
  • The management of alarms through electronic mail (e-mail).
  • The management of alarms through instant messages XMPP (Jabber).
  • Using standard IP protocols IPv4 and IPv6 between computers.
  • Opening to the hardware sensors and actuators used in "smart grid" (with low energy consumption).

Stantor - Domodulor uses the SOAP protocol (XML + HTTP) and Websocket (HTML5) protocol between the micro-computer or mico-controler managing hardware and the central micro-computer that can possibly be located in a access provider ("Cloud"). The software developments are done in C language, PHP scripting language, SQL, Javascript / AJAX and HTML / cHTML / xHTML. Linux distributions supported are Ubuntu, Fedora, Mageia (Mandriva).
