Main goal is to create secure, reliable and cheap platform for internet of things (IoT).

Before we start building our system we have some basic requirements:

  • secure - we don't want our neighbor (or stranger 1000 km away) switch on/off our lights :).
  • reliable - no need additional explanation.
  • cheap - we want build our system from components easily available on market for low price.
  • access to our system from everywhere with different connection options. 
  • we want all systems on our server. We don't want to depend on external cloud services. We want our data stay ours - no NSA sniffing :). Of course if we want we can share our data with external services, but only if we want. 
  • low power consumption - our system runs 24/7 so we dot't want to increase our electricity bill because of that. We also want to run our sensors on batteries at least one year (sometimes even 5-10 years).

 

EasyIoT architecture

As we see on picture we use Raspberry Pi as EasyIoT server. Raspberry Pi is easily available everywhere and it's cheap. Model A and B consume about 2.5 W of power, model B+ consumes even less power.

 

Some EasyIoT server features:

  • modern responsive HTML5 web interface,
  • password protected access with SSL encryption support,
  • programmable automation engine,
  • logging sensor information in database,
  • support for mobile devices (WEB and native),
  • SMS access and control,
  • it allows access from different devices: desktop and mobile,
  • supports different drivers: MySensors, Raspberry Pi GPIO,
  • low power consumption,
  • WEB service API.

 Sensor node features:

  • low power consumption - if it runs on battery it must run at least 1 year without need to change batteries (some of sensors even 5 years), 
  • small size

This is really a great project. I have installed it on my raspberry pi, and I'm putting together some sensors with arduino micro.
