Node-RED Integration

Node-RED Integration

Date: Expected to be released in September
Component: Node-RED
Release Note:
After several months without publishing our progresses here, we want to to start sharing our updates here as before. Today we have to announce that we are working in a library for Node-RED that allows working with Workflows, adding a vast amount of capabilities and interoperability to Thinger.io ecosystem.

Some of the expected features (nodes) for Node-RED in the first release:

  • Read/subscribe to device data
  • Send data to a device
  • Call an endpoint
  • Read/Write data bucket
  • Read device state (connected/disconnected)

This way, it would be possible to add intelligence and logic to the devices connected to Thinger.io. We are planning also to add a hosted solution of Node-RED (under subscription) and integrate it under our console administration. What do you think about that? :slight_smile:

Additional Information

We have working now a preliminary version:

    Very much in favour of this ! The thinger.io infrastructure is great for collecting data, especially from ESPxx devices, but I need more…
    What has been missing is the ability to use the sensor data to make simple decisions and then send the resulting action back to an IOT station.
    Hopefully, Node Red will provide that facility?

      Hi David, this feature is already available to install in Node-RED. It is just a beta, but it works fine! Just open Node-RED and search for Thinger.io nodes.
