What are the advantages of John OS in comparison with a traditional home automation system?
The easiness to integrate new functions reduces costs and time for the system integrators during the implementation of new projects; the possibility to use devices with different standards and the easiness in its configuration, make John OS the home automation system more user friendly available in the market. Last but not least it’s affordable, in fact the same functions are given by John at a cheaper price than any other domotic system.
In the Application Market there are many applications fitting any environment: from general ones suitable for any building, such as lighting control and energy efficiency, to ones dedicated to places such as hospitals, hotels, theatres and also factories and farms that need dedicated applications. Applications can be developed by any programmer, thanks to John O.S. specifications (available soon in this web site), without compatibility problems between devices, standards and structures.
As said, John OS is multi-standard because include the use of the most important standards such as KNX, Lon Works, ZigBee, EnOcean, X10, OneWire and others. It reduces complexity, time and costs.

Guidelines for developers and “How to”'s for integrate new products or services are available in the web site.
Home automation is already a fact and its advantages are well-known (energy conservation, more functions and increase of the project value).
Thanks to domotics our projects are in a new dimension where houses come to life in order to respond to the users needs.
In the most of the major buildings (stadiums, hotels, airports...) home automation systems are already used, for example to manage bioclimatic systems (see doc “[Diff - ENG] Guideline to merge architecture and home automation.pdf”), but also to create ornamental effects such as light or water special effects. In this area John OS can support any needs, helps architects and give added value in terms of more efficiency and optimization of time and cost.
Last but not least home automation give an high value added to your project and represent an attractive element to catch customers.
