What is it?
MyWatts is a demonstration of using the Emutex ubiworx framework to build a home automation system that is connected to the Internet. Ubiworx connects all the sensors and controllers in the house into a smart gateway allowing them to be monitored and controlled from web apps and mobile devices.
How it works?
In the MyWatts demo ubiworx runs on an Intel Galileo platform with an Xbee shield to create a wireless "mesh" control network. The network consists of the Galileo base station, four Passive Infrared motion detectors, temperature sensors and 2 relay stations. It also has a Carlo Gavazzi energy monitor connected over ModBus via a RS485 to USB convertor.
