This node makes it easy to use Node-RED to read, insert, update, and delete data in FairCom Edge. It communicates with FairCom Edge using its REST plug-in.

The FairCom Edge Node.js node module for Node-RED can be installed providing a storage node icon in your Node-RED palette. Drag this storage node into your flows and quickly add persistence to your application.
