Apps and web interfaces

There are now a variety of apps and web interfaces to control the smarthome. Below I would like to briefly introduce the three most important ones in more detail.


By using openHAB together with an android app everything can be controlled very comfortably by a mobile phone. Of course, there is also a iOS version.

All used icons are part of my deployment project and can be downloaded there.

Habpanel is an angular based web application. It is a good basis for custom surfaces and is used on my wall mounted display.

Another interesting UI is the Projekt Rotini. This Android App for openHAB is the best choice for control panels (tablets) which are embedded into wall. Currently it is in alpha state and some important widget types are still missing. But it is stable enough to give it a try and the first impression is very good.
