Abstract NSRC SOLARIS is a 1.5 GeV third generation light source constructed at Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland. The machine was commissioned in April 2016 and operates in decay mode. Two beamlines PEEM/XAS and UARPES were commissioned in 2018 and they have opened for conducting research in fall 2018. Two more beamlines (PHELIX and XMCD) are installed now and will be commissioned soon. Due to small size of the team and many concurrent tasks, automation is very important. Automating many tasks in a quick and effective way is possible thanks to the control system based on TANGO Controls and Python programming language. With facadevice library the necessary values can be easily calculated in real-time. Beam position correction with PID controller at PEEM/XAS and UARPES beamlines, alarm handling in SOLARIS Heating Unit Controller and real-time calculation of various vacuum parameters are shown as examples.
