"When smart devices are closed, they're not smart at all.
Netbeast is an open source platform for developing Internet of Things (IoT) applications for appliances and other devices. It's an environment-agnostic platform that allows users to ignore details like wireless protocols, brand-specific public APIs, or device detection. One of Netbeast's main goals is to help foster and develop an open source community in IoT.
Dashboard: Platform for users to install applications and control smart products API: Unique and simple interface to create applications and plugins that allow devices to communicate with each other. Plugins are the "secret sauce" behind Netbeast's API engine; They allow you to control devices through the Netbeast API. With plugins, you can register a resource for others to use, like an LED panel, a microphone, or other IoT smart home products.
Netbeast applications allow you to control how devices interact each other. You don't have to worry about which brand of devices you're using, you only need to say what you want to control (lights, sound, sensors, etc.) and the value you want to give them (color, power, track, etc.)."
