xAP Home Automation protocol

From XAP Automation
Jump to: navigation, search

xAP is an open protocol intended to support the integration of telemetry and control devices primarily within the home - it is the glue that supports the interconnectivity of Home Automation devices.

The primary design objectives are:

  • Simple, easy to implement/retrofit
  • Suitable for use with a wide range of processing capabilities, from embedded controllers to fully fledged PC's
  • Operating system agnostic
  • Programming language agnostic
  • Network agnostic

These are lofty design goals, and initial implementation is currently focussed on IP based networks, PC's running Linux and Win/32, and Rabbit embedded microcontrollers.
