ioBroker Settings and “How to” Examples

Currently I’m investigate iobroker, a fascinating “Internet of Things” software.

How to extend the ioBroker “Node-Red” Adapter with additional nodes like Arduino?

  1. Go to the iobroker installation directory like “/opt/iobroker9/node_modules/iobroker.js-controller”
  2. Type “./iobroker stop”
  3. Go to “/opt/iobroker9/node_modules/iobroker.node-red/node_modules/node-red”
  4. i.e. install Arduino with “npm install arduino-firmata”
  5. Back in the ioBroker directory type “./iobroker start”

Node-Red nodes can be found at

Example of ioBroker with Node-Red Integration:
