The Smart Building Canopy

The canopy network consists of a single SmartMesh IP network deployed in your building, connected to the MQTT broker.

Throughout the following labs you will:

  • attach sensors to your motes
  • deploy the motes in your building; they join the canopy network
  • create your own account on IBM Bluemix and start a Node-RED instance which runs continuously
  • build a web interface using Node-RED
  • interact with your mote(s) from your phone
