Currently I am working on a start-up to create an open sourced RaspberryPi based thermostat. This project seems to have a lot of potential and I love the people I’m working with. Currently I am working on the back-end which consists of a Mosca (MQTT) server with a web-socket tied in for browser support. The architecture I am going after looks like this. This way to extend the server you would only have to add a Job, Service, or Route file to the project to extend how things work. Hopefully we can make the web front end as easy to extend! I hope this project takes off. I would like this project to bring more smart thermostats into homes and bring more people into the world of open source hardware and software.
