NETIO AN51 Paessler PRTG: How to control power outputs with a button on a map

AN51 shows how to use PRTG to monitor and control NETIO power sockets using a map. To control the power outputs, an external script is used to switch the outputs on and off over the URL API.



AN50 - Prometheus and Grafana for NETIO power data analysis and visualization

This application note describes Prometheus monitoring system, how to use it to monitor runtime information about NETIO power sockets and how to visualise obtained data in Grafana. It can be used in Linux / Windows / as Docker image. The used protocol is JSON.

Paessler PRTG power monitoring with NETIO power sockets and electricity meters

AN48 shows how to read NETIO power socket states from the Paessler PRTG Network Monitor (Windows only) in order to measure energy consumption. In this example, the device is accessed over SNMP and its electrical parameters (Wh, W, A, Hz, Power Factor) as well as power output states (on/off) are read.


AN46 – PaPouch Wix software - how to use it with NETIO power sockets 230V (Modbus/TCP)

NETIO AN46 demonstrates how to connect smart power socket and Wix software with using Modbus/TCP protocol. Wix Measurement is a tool for monitoring and storing of data from wide range of devices which allows to control connected power sockets and make graphs of measuring power values (Current, Voltage, TruePF or kWh).


AN44 EcHo Plus (NEETS) for AV applications controlling electrical power sockets 230V

NETIO AN44 demonstrates how to control outputs and read measurements (state, W, A) from the 110/230V NETIO smart sockets/outlets by Neets Control System over LAN/WiFi network.
Neets Control System is an easy way, how to control the AV systems. Neets EcHo Plus is the simple keypad control system connected to LAN. Neets devices can now easily control directly electrical socket outputs. It’s easy to use and you do not need to be a programmer or electrician to do so!


NETIO Power Analyzer: Explore power consumption

NETIO AN42 shows how to use the NETIO Power Analyzer utility (for Node-RED) to explore the power consumption behavior of electrical appliances. In a single screen, the Current [A], Load [W] and TruePF [-] waveforms are shown. The charts give a clear idea whether or not the energy consumption waveform can be used to monitor the appliance (e.g. see how many chewing gums were sold by a vending machine or if a fridge functions correctly).


Power monitoring over SNMP in Zabbix / Nagios for NETIO power sockets

AN41 shows how to use PowerPDU 4C to measure electric current and energy consumption in the Zabbix SNMP system (Linux). It also provides practical tips on power measurement and device monitoring in SNMP systems (Nagios, Zenoss, Zabbix and others).

Getting started with PowerCable MQTT-flex via HiveMQ MQTT broker to mobile App.

MQTT-flex, supported by PowerCable MQTT, is a protocol for cloud applications. Flex is a method of configuring the standard MQTT with a user-defined topic and payload structure.  The customer does not need to adapt to one particular MQTT structure. AN40 demonstrates how to configure MQTT-flex in PowerCable MQTT and connect the Wi-Fi smart socket device to the public HiveMQ broker. A mobile app is used to display the data and control the power output over the MQTT protocol.


Mobile applications IOS controlling NETIO smart power sockets

The AN39 Application Note gives an overview of iOS (iPhone) apps that can be used for home automation to control electrical outlets and other devices over http get (URL API) or Modbus/TCP.



The Domoticz home automation system can read measured values and control individual power outlets on a NETIO smart socket device. The example is applicable to NETIO 4All, PowerCable REST and other NETIO products that support JSON over HTTP. Domoticz is a Home Automation System that can configure, control and monitor various devices. It can run in a Docker container, a FreeNAS storage device, a local PC, or even a Raspberry Pi.


Node-RED example of Modbus/TCP communication with NETIO 4x / PowerCable

NETIO AN32 demonstrates how to control outputs and read measurements (kWh, A, V) from the 110/230V smart sockets from a Node-RED application using the Modbus/TCP protocol.
Node-RED is a programming tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services. Modbus/TCP is an industry-standard protocol. The Application Note applies to NETIO 4x devices as well as PowerCable Modbus 101x power sockets with WiFi.


Node-RED example of REST XML communication with NETIO 4x

Node-RED is a programming tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services. The AN31 Application Note shows how to control NETIO 110/230V smart sockets from Node-RED using HTTP - REST XML.



Node-RED example of REST JSON communication with NETIO 4x

The AN30 Application Note demonstrates how to read consumption data from NETIO 4x and PowerCable REST smart socket devices and how to control their outputs using REST API – JSON. The netio.json file is transferred over http. Node-RED is a programming tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services. It can run, for example, in a cloud, on a local PC, or in a Raspberry Pi.


Node-RED example of URL API communication with NETIO 4x

Node-RED is a programming tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services. The AN29 Application Note shows how to control 110/230V smart sockets from Node-RED using URL API. Invoking an URL is a simple but only a one-way solution (it is possible to control NETIO 4x outputs from Node-RED but it is not possible to measure consumption).
