Do you think we are missing an alternative of OpenRemote or a related project?
Welcome to the OpenRemote 3.0 platform; an intuitive user-friendly 100% open source IoT platform. We have our origins in Home Automation but our 3.0 platform is focused on generic IoT applications and is a completely different stack to any of our 2.x services. As the code base is 100% open source then the applications are limitless. Here's an architecture overview:
You can quickly try the online demo with restricted access, login credentials are
The quickest way to get your own environment with full access is to make use of our docker images (both
arm64 are supported).
- Make sure you have Docker Desktop installed (v18+).
- Download the docker compose file: OpenRemote Stack (Right click 'Save link as...')
In a terminal
cdto where you just saved the compose file and then run:
docker-compose -p openremote up
If all goes well then you should now be able to access the OpenRemote Manager UI at https://localhost. You will need to accept the self-signed certificate, see here for details how to do this in Chrome (similar for other browsers).
Not using localhost?
The URL you use to access the system is important, by default keycloak expects it to be
https://localhost if you are using a VM then you will need to tell keycloak at startup, so if for example you will be accessing using
https://192.168.1.1 then use the following startup command:
KEYCLOAK_FRONTEND_URL=https://192.168.1.1/auth docker-compose -p openremote up -d
cmd /C "set KEYCLOAK_FRONTEND_URL=https://192.168.1.1/auth && docker-compose -p openremote up -d"
Try creating assets, agents, rules, users, realms, etc. using the Manager UI, please refer to the wiki for more information, some things to try:
Where's the data stored?
Persistent data is stored in a PostgreSQL DB which is stored in the
openremote_postgresql-data docker volume which is durably stored independently of the running containers (see all with
docker volume ls).
If you want to create a backup of your installation, just make a copy of this volume.
