ago control Install Debian Wheezy

Please mind that you should set up ago control on a development system before you install it on any productive system and that we use systemd for smooth process handling. You can download Debian Wheezy here:

Installation of ago control packages

Add Sources

echo "deb wheezy main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

Install ago control

apt-get update
apt-get install agocontrol agocontrol-admin

Optional packages for hardware and extra feature support:

  • agocontrol-cloud - 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

HINT: Systemd Startup Script Support - If you want the ago control services to be started automatically we strongly recommend to install this:

apt-get install systemd systemd-sysv

IMPORTANT: After installing systemd you should reboot your system

Configuring qpidd at installation dialog

Please enter the password for the Qpid daemon administrator. Administrator password:

type any password you want

You need to restart qpid as the agocontrol package changes the ACL configuration.

edit config file (optional)

The config.ini file is located here:


This page lists all available sections: config.ini

add udev rules (optional)

echo '# OWFS 1 Wire USB Adapter LinkUSBi
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0403", ATTRS{idProduct} =="6001", SYMLINK+="usbowfs", RUN+="/bin/systemctl restart agoowfs.service"

# Vera Z-Wave USB Stick - Cygnal Integrated Products, Inc.
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="10c4", ATTRS{idProduct} =="ea60", SYMLINK+="usbzwave", RUN+="/bin/systemctl restart agozwave.service"'> /etc/udev/rules.d/99-agocontrol.rules

You can test the rules via:

udevadm trigger

Or display detailed USB device info with:

udevadm info --query=all --attribute-walk --name=/dev/ttyUSB0

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. You need to check it out from SVN.

apt-get install subversion
cd /usr/src
svn co agocontrol

Start the simulator:

python /usr/src/agocontrol/agocontrol/devices/

You can see some console output if you play with the devices in ago's web interface.

Access the web interface

Hint: You may change "" to your hostname or ip-address.

Access the NEW JS ADMIN interface
