Installing agoControl on Debian Jessie

Please mind that you should set up agoControl on a development system before installing it into production. We use systemd for smooth process handling.

Installation of agoControl Packages

Install apt Repository Key

wget -O - | apt-key add -

Add agoControl Repositories

Lastest unstable development packages:

echo '  
# agoControl sources repository
deb unstable main' >> /etc/apt/sources.list

Install agoControl

apt-get update
apt-get install agocontrol

Optional packages for hardware and extra feature support:

  • agocontrol-cloud (this package is temporarily unavailable!) - ago Cloud automation system suport on
  • agocontrol-owfs - Device for 1-Wire Hardware
  • agocontrol-zwave - Device for Z-Wave Hardware
  • agocontrol-meloware - Device for Meloware iPhone App
  • agocontrol-alert - Device for to communicate via sms, email, tweet, push notifications
  • agocontrol-rrdtool - Device for RRDtool graphs, plot, and lists of your measuring sensors

Configuring qpidd at installation dialog

During installation, you will be prompted:

type any password you want

Establish agoControl as an autostart service on boot:

apt-get install systemd systemd-sysv

Enable logging

add this as a new line in the "standard log files" area of the /etc/rsyslog.conf file:

local0.*       /var/log/agocontrol.log

edit config file (optional)

The System.conf file is located here:


This page lists all available sections: System.conf

Update your conf files to use the proper device name:

sudo nano /etc/opt/agocontrol/conf.d/zwave.conf 


Same goes for mysensor conf file:

sudo nano /etc/opt/agocontrol/conf.d/mysensors.conf 


start / stop / autostart services

Configue service autostart This will enable all services:

/opt/agocontrol/bin/ enable

You can also use "systemctl enable <service>" to manually enable specific services. ""Start components"" This will start all installed components:

/opt/agocontrol/bin/ start

Final steps

If you do not have additional hardware like Z-Wave or 1-Wire you can start the ago simulator to simulate some devices: Simulator
