    node-red-contrib-iokey

    Node-RED Connector for the io-key

    node-red-contrib-mindconnect

    This collection of nodes contains three nodes to receive measurements, alarms and events from a sensor connected to an io-key. ​

    Installing the node

    # change to your ~/.node-red/ folder
    cd ~/.node-red/
    npm install node-red-contrib-io-key

    Node-RED - Manage Palette Installation

    You can also install the node via the manage palette feature in the Node-RED administration UI.

    How to use the Node-RED node

    Step 1: Connect an io-key with at least one sensor to your cloud

    ​Step 2: Create and deploy the flow

    • Add a measurement, alarm or event node to your flow
    • Add your tenant-config and enter your hostname, username and password
    • Now you need to deploy the flow so that the measurement node can fetch the list of io-keys
    • Open the node configuration again and choose your io-key and sensors from the dropdowns
    • Select your preferred format and deploy your flow again
    • You should now receive measurements, alarms or events from your io-key ​

    Formats

    Each node can output your data in the following formats: ​

    • MindSphere: The node will return a format which can be used together with the MindConnect node to send data to MindSphere

    • PPMP: The node will output a standardized PPMP message

    Example flows

    MindSphere Communication

    This flow establishes a connection to the MindSphere via the mindconnect node.

    Getting Started

    Step 1: Import Flow

    • Import the Node-RED flow from below

    Step 2: Set up MindSphere

    • Create a MindSphere asset
    • Generate an onboard token
    • Copy the onboard token into the mindconnect node

    Step 3: Test it

    • Now you have successfully set up your MindSphere Communication

    ]

    Push-Notification Example

    This demonstration flow is used to check whether temperature thresholds have been exceeded. If this is the case, a push notification is sent to the configured smartphone. (A limit of one notification per minute has been set)

    Getting Started

    Step 1: Import the flow into your Node-RED flow

    • Select import in the upper right menu
    • Select Clipboard
    • Copy the JSON from push-notification-flow.json into the Node-RED modal

    Step 2: Download the Pushover app for receiving Push-Notifications

    • Go to Google Play Store or Apple App Store and download the app: Pushover
    • Create an account
    • Verify your e-mail and login here
    • Scroll down until you see a table called Your Application
    • Create a new application
    • After the successful creation of a new application you will see a API Token. Copy it.

    Step 3: Install the Node-Red Pushover Node

    • Open "Manage palette" in the Node-RED Menü
    • Select Install
    • Search for "node-red-contrib-pushover"
    • Click install

    Step 4: Connect Node-RED and Pushover

    • Open the Pushover-Node
    • Create a new key
    • Copy your API Token into the field Token
    • Copy your User Key from the main page of Pushover into the field User
    • [optional] Enter a name of your key into the field name
    • Save your key

    Step 5: Test it

    • Now you have successfully set up your Push-Notification-Flow. Just send values which are higher then 25 with your io key or adjust the flow for your own thresholds.

    Dual Silo Monitoring Example

    In this showcase two io-keys are used to monitor two silos. The sensor readings are converted to liters and the flow adds up the fill levels of both silos. If the total material is too low the flow sends an email to notify the supplier.

    Getting Started

    Step 1: Configuration

    • Sensor Value to Meters-Nodes: Adjust the formula so that the node outputs meters. - For example, if your sensor readings are in cm you need to divide by 100.
    • Calculate Fill Level-Nodes: Adjust the constants SENSOR_MOUNT_HEIGHT and SILO_DIAMETER to match your silo's physical dimensions. You can also adjust the formula if your silo is not cylindrical.
    • Check if Empty-Node: Adjust the constants THRESHOLD and HYSTERESIS. If the fill level is below the threshold an email is sent.
    • email-Node: Setup your mail server and the recipient

    Step 2: Test it

    • Now you have successfully set up your Silo Monitoring flow. Just use the transferred data from the io key sensor or select the test data inject input to run the flow with test data.

    Microsoft Azure Communication

    This flow establishes a connection to the azure cloud via mqtt.

    Getting Started

    Step 1: Set up Azure

    • Create a new device on your Azure IoT Hub
    • Generate your device's SAS token
    • Enter your device credentials in the mqtt node: _ Create a server configuration: _ In the connection tab add the following values _ Server: {your iothubhostname} _ TLS: Activate checkbox _ Client-ID: {your device_id} _ In the security tab add the following values _ Username: {your iothubhostname}/{your device_id}/?api-version=2018-06-30 _ Password: {SAS}
      • Back the main tab of the mqtt node enter your topic:
        • Topic: devices/{your devicename}/messages/events/

    Step 2: Test it

    • Now you have successfully set up your Azure Communication

    AWS Flow

    With this flow sensor data can be directly published via MQTT to an AWS IOT Broker.

    Getting Started

    Step 1: Create a AWS Thing/Device

    • Select the AWS IoT Core service
    • Create your AWS Thing with a suitable policy
    • Download all required certifications and keys

    Step 2: Configure the MQTT node

    • Select the mqtt node
    • Add a new server
    • Enter your server address and the following port: 8883
    • Check Enable secure (SSL/TLS) connection
    • Add a new TLS configuration and upload the Certificate, Private Key, CA Certificate from you AWS IOT Broker
    • After clicking on update the node should successfully connect with your broker

    Amazon Alexa Example

    With this flow you can activate or deactivate the data transfer to a cloud platform (here MindSphere) via Alexa spoken command. This is an small example how to interact with Alexa in your Node-RED flow. For deeper functions Alexa skills are needed. You find more information to this topic here

    Getting Started

    Step 1: Download the Amazon Alexa app

    • Search for new devices
    • Select the IO Key Data Transfer device

    Step 2: Install required modules

    • Navigate to the manage palette in Node-RED and install the following modules
    • @mindconnect/node-red-contrib-mindconnect
    • node-red-contrib-alexa-local
    • Copy you Agent Configuration into the mindconnect node

    Step 3: Test it

    • Now you should be able to control alexa via your voice. For example: "Alexa turn IO Key Data Transfer on/off"
