GNU remotecontrol is a web application serving as a management tool for multiple IP enabled HVAC thermostats (device), and other Building Automation devices. The purpose of GNU remotecontrol is to read from and write to multiple IP enabled thermostats.
remotecontrol can be found on the main GNU ftp server: http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/remotecontrol/ (via HTTP) and ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/remotecontrol/ (via FTP). It can also be found on the GNU mirrors; please use a mirror if possible.
remotecontrol has Unattended Server Side Automation (USSA), accomplished in separate script files. These files are optional to remotecontrol. These scripts are not distributed with a version release of remotecontrol. They are only available through the remotecontrol repository. The usage instructions for each USSA file are in each script, at the top of each script file. remotecontrol add-ons can be found at http://svn.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/trunk/add-ons/?root=remotecontrol (via HTTP) or
svn co svn://svn.sv.gnu.org/remotecontrol/trunk/add-ons (via SVN).
Documentation for remotecontrol is available online, as is documentation for most GNU software. You may also find more information about remotecontrol by running info remotecontrol or man remotecontrol, or by looking at /usr/share/doc/remotecontrol/, /usr/local/doc/remotecontrol/, or similar directories on your system. A brief summary is available by running remotecontrol --help.
remotecontrol has the following mailing lists:
- remotecontrol is the only list, for now. An alias from bug-remotecontrol is in place. This list is used to discuss most aspects of remotecontrol, including development, enhancement requests, general user help, discussion, as well as bug reports.
Announcements about remotecontrol and most other GNU software are made on Savannah News for remotecontrol and info-gnu (archive).
Security reports that should not be made immediately public can be sent directly to the maintainer. If there is no response to an urgent issue, you can escalate to the general security mailing list for advice.
Development of remotecontrol, and GNU in general, is a volunteer effort, and you can contribute. For information, please read How to help GNU. If you'd like to get involved, it's a good idea to join the discussion mailing list (see above).
