I had my fair share of endeavors with closed and open home automation solutions and this one really hit it off. openHAB is an amazingly flexible center for your smart home, regardless if you are playing around with ESP8266's or driving a whole KNX installation. It's open source and the almost 200 add-ons can talk to nearly everything out there, from Z-Wave over Alexa and IFTTT, your Tesla car and up to whatever you get onto MQTT.
One warning though: "With great power comes great responsibility" ;) openHAB is not a point and shoot adventure. Setting up your SmartHome takes a few minutes but it's totally worth it! Happy Hacking ;)

What's not to like? OpenHAB is free, open source, has an active developer community supporting it, is easy to install for anyone even slightly technical, continues to release improvements and integrations and generally works very well. DIY home automation isn't a 'plug in and everything magically works' sort of thing, but with openHAB and some spare time to configure it you will be happy you aren't paying a monthly fee to a 3rd party and have a system that handles multiple protocols (Z-Wave, ZibBee, X10, Philips Hue, ect, ect) with ease.
Running it on raspbian, powerful and easy to use! Well maintained and free cloud service w/iOS and Android apps.
OpenHAB offers plenty of connectors to a wide variety of data source, be it hardware stuffs (sensors, devices, ...) or software ones (weather forecast services, ...).
Its scripting features are pretty powerful once learned, especially when associated to a persistence store.
One drawback though : the learning curve is quite steep. It takes time and reading to really get the best out of it. But once it is done, you are ready to automate anything you want in your place !
openHAB is BEST-IN-CLASS multi-protocol software for home automation !!!
It's free, open-source and very powerful. There are available many many addons (bindings).
Excellent support for any existing and future IoT device!
Great tool for my home automation with growing amount of bindings!
powerful, flexible, reliable, great community
Open-Source project which aims at freeing its users from vendor lock-in.
It's my home controller and it's amazing!
it is robust opensource that gives full control and high service reliability
It's a very powerful environment allowing you to interface with a large variety of devices. If you know how to write code it is also a very powerful way to automate tasks among many different devices in your house.
Open Source, great support, good features
