The Role of Node-RED in WISE-PaaS/RMM
Node-RED is a visual tool provided by IBM for wiring together hardware devices, APIs, and online services – for wiring the Internet of Things.
WISE-PaaS/RMM has Node-RED built in as a logic editor. Developers can open the Node-RED web interface on the 1880 port of WISE-PaaS/RMM. We provide all WISE-PaaS/RMM features, like device control, and database access as Node functions (RMM-Nodes) for developers, so they can easily create flow control logic, based on WISE-PaaS/RMM functions. For example, a developer can use Node-RED to monitor the CO2 values in a meeting room, and when the value goes too high, turn on a blower by remote control RMM-Node. Developers can also use Node-RED to get data from other web services, software, or databases, and integrate it as a web-socket with JSON data format for WISE-PaaS/RMM or other software/web-application uses.
