Build simple flows to move data to and from databases, cloud applications, and APIs.

Included in groov EPIC is Node-RED, an open-source software program you can use to wire together devices, databases, cloud applications, and APIs (application program interfaces) with simple logic flows.

Many people use Node-RED for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Node-RED provides engineers with an easy way to connect edge computing systems, such as industrial automation controllers, to cloud services such as Amazon Web Services™ (AWS) IoT, IBM Watson IoT™, and Microsoft® Azure®.

In Node-RED you connect prebuilt nodes (provided by device manufacturers or software developers) together to make a flow. The flow provides the logic to accomplish your goal. You can also add function nodes containing JavaScript.

Because Node-RED is a general-purpose programming environment, you have the freedom to create the flows you like using any nodes you choose. Opto 22 PAC Control nodes (for groov EPIC processors and SNAP PAC controllers), groov Data Store nodes, and a wide variety of other nodes are easy to install.
