The Node-RED integration on the TNA Connect V2 allows you to connect even more devices, protocols, and APIs to the evalink ecosystem seamlessly.

Why Node-RED?

Node-RED is a versatile and user-friendly interface that simplifies the integration and automation of devices and protocols. With its intuitive drag-and-drop interface, you can easily create custom workflows and automation rules to process data on the device.

With its integration into the evalink ecosystem, you can use the TNA Connect V2 with Node-RED to process large amounts of data locally and escalate data of interest to evalink talos, our alarm management platform.

Access a wide range of technologies in one place

With Node-RED, you can integrate various technologies and devices very simply. Node-RED connects:

Sensors: Environment, temperature, pressure, humidity, brightness, digital inputs, buttons, door & window sensors, people presence, water leak sensors, energy/power meters, etc.

Smart controls: Switches (relay/remote), dimmers, lights, valves (water/gas), locks, HVAC, smart plugs, etc.

Protocols & interfaces:

- Automation: BACnet, OPC UA/DA, Modbus TCP/RTU, KNX, RS-232/RS-422/RS-485, IoT, MQTT, ZigBee, Z-Wave.

- General: (REST) API, SNMP, ICMP, WebSocket.

Real-world applications

With Node-RED for evalink, a new world of integrated security systems opened.
