Getting Started with Node-RED

Getting Started with Node-RED

Use Node-RED to pull data into your groov EPIC over the internet, and also to push data from your groov EPIC into the cloud.

About this course

Node-RED is "a visual wiring tool for the Internet of Things."

In this course, you’ll create a Node-RED flow to pull data into your groov EPIC over the internet (cloud-to-device), and you'll also import a flow to push data from your groov EPIC into the cloud (device-to-cloud).  

Along with an overview of Node-RED, you learn how to:

  • Test groov EPIC's Security for Node-RED
  • Create a node
  • Test a simple flow
  • Try some debug settings and see the results in the debug pane

Course duration: 30 minutes
