Building Access Control software is a sophisticated niche. A new open source project hosted by Sourceforge.net has started up to create a framework -plugin style of software to serve this market.


Initially this project will be of interest to software developers with C, Python or Tcl/Tk experience. The Sourceforge URL is:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/opndrs

Once we get the seed code rolled out and tuned this project will be of interest to any entities involved with building access control or building automation.

The framework for this software is licenced under the LGPL open source licence. The plugins for this framework can be licenced however the developer choses.

This licencing model will allow commercial uses of this software.

This software will be suitable for embedding into intelligent access control appliances.
