The WRRC system is based on OpenWRT, which is a Linux Distribution for the Linksys Router.
For WRRC downloads go here:
WRRC is built on other Open Source Projects.
Some of which include
Software included in the firmware are:
Basic utilities via Busybox
A mini sendmail for email notification
cron for job scheduling
- See busy box
rrdtools graphing and data storage
* Special thanks to Christian Magnusson for being able to cross compile everything, especially rrd which I was never able to do. He also listened to my suggestions for the temploggerd (logging/poller) and implemented them. So WRRC can log more than just temperatures.
OWFS to talk to the 1 Wire Network
Paul Alfille's excellent work that makes all the monitoring and control possible, and in an easy to implement way.
Linux, another very important component.
WISH, X10 control software for the Powerlinc II and CM11A X10 computer interface
a web server for client brower connection
telnet server for remote connection
last 2 are compelling reasons to upgrade to the new version of a commercial product. Funny that almost all Linux distributions give them to you free.
This is just technical information, the end user should not have to worry about any of this. Just install the firmware and some packages and you're on your way.
And many thanks to all the other Open Source Programmers out there that made great free (as in beer and sharing) software available. WRRC is proof that Open Source can work. I wasn't happy with a commercial controller and two months after discovering that the Linksys Router runs Linux, we're up to having a monitor and web interface.
Also a special thanks to Scott for hosting this site. Also Scott has been very valuable in actually trying the system from the start, helping me with CGI? and providing a lot of positive feedback.
This site is based on a Wiki System, which is also an Open Source Project :D
