The missing On-OFF button in IOT

Things like home appliances should have a clear behaviour humans can understand and react upon and a simple switch to put them off. 

Dowse puts an ON/OFF switch back to any device in your LAN.


 keeps your private network private and lets you understand what is trying to talk about what and be aware of misbehaviours. 

If necessary Dowse can mute things as well: it switches their access to internet off, 

Dowse is a open source project. Experts can look at is code. 
Is built to last and to be used by anyone because is a community project.

Dowse talks back to your devices. In open standards: MQTT, Websockets, Open Sound Control.

Many types of Internet connected things can treasure the messages that Dowse publishes, to turn them into action.

Is a good start for artists, hobbyists and makers to create amazing network-aware effects, visualisations and interfaces.

We try to help a community of dowsers to explore this possibility.

Check our web pages and share your dowse projects with us.
