What is dowse?

IoT missing On-OFF button

The IoT (internet of things) hype loves to generate buzz about things that will be allowed to connect to the internet and talk to other things. This buzz requires attention. Things like home appliances should have a clear behaviour and a simple switch to put them off.
Dowse puts this switch back to any device in your LAN.

Experiment along

Dowse talks back to your devices. Uses open standards: MQTTWebsocketsOpen Sound Control
So many types of devices can treasure the messages that Dowse publishes to turn them to action. Is a good start for artists, hobbyists and makers to create amazing network-aware effects and interfaces.
We try to help a community of dowsers to explore this possibility. 

Check our community pages and share your dowse projects.
