Welcome to the Open Source Automation Wiki

The Open Source Automation project is free automation software that runs on Windows and requires no programming to setup. It has a nice graphical interface and has unique features that high-end security and automation systems do not. OSA is still in early development, but progress is made every day and the future is bright.

This Wiki will attempt to provide detailed setup instructions, user guides for the many features in OSA and API documentation for developers who wish to create plug-ins.
