When you hear “wired home automation,” you probably think “difficult and costly.” Well that’s about to change. We believe it’s high time that home automation enthusiasts all over the world be given the resources they need to assemble a proper wired home automation system. GetWired provides reliable hardware and easy-to-use software that will help you get the job done right.
GetWired is built around the well-known and reliable RS485 communication standard and relies on the open source MySensors communication protocol. It is compatible with Arduino IDE and ready for plug & play interaction with a large variety of open source home automation controllers, including Domoticz and Home Assistant.
Wired home automation usually demands a lot of cable and a whole lot of effort. To minimize both, we recommend adopting a decentralized system architecture by distributing wall-mounted modules throughout the building. Doing so requires only one additional cable, which can live alongside your traditional electrical infrastructure.
Our hardware is modular. Our primary board, the RS485 MCU Module, includes an Atmega 8-bit microcontroller and an RS485 transceiver. Its size, shape, and pinout arrangement are optimized for use in home automation applications. It is designed to host a number of different shields, each of which allows it to perform a particular set of tasks, such as:
These shields are designed with ease-of-installation in mind. Some are wall-mounted and some are meant to be installed in your electrical switchboard. All are compatible with neat, 3D printable enclosures
We also provide easy-to-use, open source software that can be configured simply by commenting out the elements you don’t need. No programming experience required!
