An overview of Node-RED

What is Node-RED?
Node-RED is a simple yet powerful flow-based programing tool that allows you to collect data from new and legacy sensors, field devices and data points via a RISC or X86 computer platform, across all industries and application areas, and send relevant information to local and cloud dashboards, alters to emails and social media. Primarily, it is a visual tool designed for the Internet of Things, but can also be used for other applications to very quickly assemble flows of various services.
