Thank you for supporting openHAB!
Since 2016, the openHAB Foundation e.V. (opens new window) is a non-profit organisation that promotes the project and the use of open, vendor-agnostic solutions to empower your smart home in all possible ways:
- Organizing events such as the Smart Home Day;
- Running this website on behalf of the project and dealing with marketing and media;
- Maintaining the build server (opens new window) and the repositories of release binaries (opens new window);
- Hosting a demo server (opens new window) for new users to try openHAB;
- Keeping the community forum (opens new window) server up and running;
- Running the free-of-charge myopenHAB (opens new window) service, an openHAB Cloud instance allowing 20000+ registered users to easily and securely access their smart home remotely, and connect them to the cloud;
- Taking care of the publication of the apps in Google Play (opens new window), the Apple App Store (opens new window) and the Windows Store (opens new window);
- Making sure openHAB has a presence on various external platforms such as IFTTT (opens new window) and Amazon Alexa (opens new window);
- and more!
Everything has a cost, and while you're enjoying these services for free, running them with no commercial intent is not. Your donations help a lot and are used solely for extending the goals of the Foundation. If you find these efforts useful, please consider donating what you think they are worth.
