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.

AN49 - PAB: Counting cups of cofee from the cofee machines electricity consumption (Node-RED)

A PAB (Power Analyzer Block) in NETIO AN49 shows how to analyze the consumption of an appliance to count repeated actions (such as the number of coffees served by a coffee machine, or the number of times a parking gate barrier was lifted). In AN49, the consumption is measured by the NETIO device, and the Wh consumption in time is analyzed and the results displayed in Node-RED.

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.


NETIO AN47 – The BrightSign player controls the power outputs of the NETIO PDU

The AN47 contains the NETIO BrightSign plugin (driver) for download and describes the use of the BrightSign player with NETIO LAN sockets. The system works autonomously, it does not need an internet connection or a cloud.

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).



AN45 shows a Lua script that switches individual outputs on and off in a timed sequence when the device is powered up. In this way, a precise power-up sequence of the connected appliances can be defined.


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.


AN38 - NETIO and third-party mobile apps for Android (URL API, Telnet, Modbus)

AN38 gives an overview of Android apps that can be used for home automation to control electrical outlets and other devices over http get (URL API) or Modbus/TCP.

AN37 Outputs sequence started by Windows desktop icon bat file

AN37 shows how to create a .bat file to set the outputs of several NETIO devices using the PyNetio utility. JSON API, which is enabled by default, is used for the communication. AN37 incudes sample .bat files for various configurations of outputs.



Om7Sense is German software producer of DCIM systems to monitor & optimize your datacenter or related IT infrastructure about power, environment sensors, optimal cooling control and related features. NETIO products are seamlessly integrated in the system with using even high security protocols.



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.
