Here is a list of software I created / contributed available for download. All software listed on this page is released under GPL license or similar (meaning they are free to use and they are open source). Most of this stuff, and more, is available on github.
pySolo is a complete suite for sleep analysis in Drosophila. Complete means can be used at any stage of the experiment, from data acquisition to data analysis. It is easy to use, intuitive, amazingly fast and easily expandable. Acquisition can be done either using the common IR monitors or video imaging. A module for video analysis is also provided: it uses regular webcams and infrared lighting. A complete system able to monitor 1500 flies could be setup for anything between $1000 and $3000. pySolo is absolutely free and released as open source project. It runs on any OS.
