Zodianet is a french startup which sells a home automation box : ZiBASE. They just released software running on ZiBASE for the Raspberry Pi : ZiBASE Mini. It is available as an SD card image or as a debian package.
There is a (not so) basic free version which is working with ZWave or enocean usb dongles. You will have a pay a licence for advance home automation (video streaming, data historization, scenarios…)
It is a nice way to start as software is free and Pi is cheap ! And it is known to work on CubieBoard also !
I’ll try it ! Downloading…
