Thank you for supporting openHAB!

Since 2016, the openHAB Foundation e.V. 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 and the repositories of release binaries;
  • Hosting a demo server for new users to try openHAB;
  • Keeping the community forum server up and running;
  • Running the free-of-charge myopenHAB 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, the Apple App Store and the Windows Store;
  • Making sure openHAB has a presence on various external platforms such as IFTTT and Amazon Alexa;
  • 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.
