FairCom Edge Node-RED connector

Node-RED is an open-source solution for building low-code, event-driven applications. It is designed to wire together hardware devices, APIs, and online services. It is low-code because it provides a graphical user interface for building flows. It can collect, process, and deliver data to supported protocols using conditional logic.

Node-RED and FairCom Edge complete each other. Node-RED does not include a database or an MQTT broker. FairCom Edge contains an embedded database and a mission-critical MQTT broker with JSON APIs, making it easy for Node-RED to configure MQTT topics, persist data, and query data.
