Some cool features out of the box
Build great dashboards
You can create as many dashboards as you want in Gladys, and they are entirely customizable. Add your cameras, charts of sensors in your house, display who's at home and who's not.
Automate your life with scenes
You want to wake up with nice music? The coffee ready? Gladys can help you with that. Scenes are fully editable in the UI, and can be triggered from an event coming, at a specific time, or manually.
Always one message away
Gladys is a smart assistant. You can talk to her in the interface, or with our Telegram integration. Ask her to show you the image of the camera in the kitchen, and she'll answer back!
Lots of compatibilities, built-in
The most intuitive smart home software
Gladys is self-hosted, and all your data stays in your local machine at home, in a simple SQLite database.
Easy to use
We built Gladys like we would build any consumer product: no SSH needed, no files to edit.
We built Gladys user interface with great care, and always start with the design when working on a new feature.
Stability is one of the core values of the project, we built Gladys to run for tens of years.
Gladys is built with fast technologies (Preact + Node.js) and we care a lot about performances.
Gladys run as a Docker container. We use Watchtower to automatically upgrade Gladys.
Our users love Gladys
