Systems are collections of modules

A system is the main logical building blocks within PlaceOS. They contain three components:

  • A collection of modules

  • Settings which will apply to the system and modules in it

  • Basic metadata (name, description etc)


Systems often represent physical spaces, such as meeting rooms. They can also represent connected items which run across physical spaces, such as a range of digital signage. Otherwise, they can represent a non-physical system with data inputs and outputs, such as a payment portal.

Systems and Zones

Zones are groups of systems which can reflect their physical or conceptual groupings. Systems can belong to zero or more zones.
