Opto 22's website will be unavailable for scheduled maintenance on Thursday February 29, 2024 at 10:00PM PST for an estimated 4 hours. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
With the Internet of Things, developers have API's to restfully access all kinds of data sources (databases, cloud analytics, etc.) and all the different endpoints can be connected easily with Node-RED so all this cloud data is more accessible than ever. In this workshop, we use Node-RED weather to request data from the Weather Underground API then parse, format and send it to a SNAP PAC controller as an example of how to connect your physical I/O control systems to real live cloud data.
