The eHomeConfigurator was created, while I was doing my PhD studies. It is an open-source eHome system creator, software integration, and development project. The result of the project is a tool and environment for supporting eHome systems and processes.

Even, if I have some future ideas for updating eHomeConfigurator to a non-rule-based smart home management tool, I am currently missing the resources to support such a project.

In the meantime, please check out the followng great opensource and actively maintained alternatives. I personally use Home-Assistant but have successfully used OpenHAB and FHEM in my classes - Home Assisstant: - OpenHAB: - FHEM:
