Would you put an Amazon camera in your bedroom? Lets investigate the privacy concerns of IoT adoption, and cover some ways to regain control of your own home.
Last month there were several mentions of the fabulous Node-RED tool, originated at IBM and now under the aegis of the JS Foundation. We will look at how to get started with this tool, and what you can do. Node-RED is a drag-and-drop tool for automating everything from your home to your factory. It excels at linking together disparate systems that otherwise could not interoperate. I like to think of it as "the duct-tape of IoT".
