Donations are more than welcome and will be used to buy new hardware, devices and sensors so they can be implemented in Domoticz. Please refer to the Domoticz website for details on how to donate.
Behind Domoticz is a group of people, who contribute to the Domoticz project on a completely voluntary base.
Ofcourse there is 'gizmocuz', the developer of Domoticz. He works on Domoticz almost daily!
He is supported by some other developers. <.... extension needed ...>
Ofcourse there are also other members, like those who maintain the forum (10 persons) and those who keep the wiki up to date.
But in fact, every member is part of the team, as everyone can contribute to this project!
