Node-RED can interface with almost any web API, for example, Adafruit, Thingspeak, and Google Spreadsheets for data visualization, or Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for user interactions.

What is Node-RED?

Node-RED is a visual programming tool used for wiring together hardware devices, APIs, and online services. It uses a flow-based programming interface, which can be accessed through any browser. It uses Node.js as a runtime environment, which makes it ideal for event-driven applications. Its visual programming style makes it possible that the most commonly used tasks can be easily automated without writing any code.

Node-RED Dashboard

Node-RED has a free downloadable plug-in called Node-RED Dashboard. This plugin opens up a new level of web visualization and dashboard customization. The plugin gives the user a clean and easy-to-use platform of which the visualization features can be tailored to each and every individual's liking. The platform is hosted on the IQ Home gateway itself, so it is available across the network.

With the plugin, the incoming measurement data can be displayed as a line, bar or pie chart. Additional gauges can be assigned, colored, and customized. The plugin is filled with many other widgets, that make the experience easier and results of measurements a breeze to look through.
