Monitoring complex IoT environments sans code? No problem, says Paessler

The advance of AI and automation is driving developers towards the concept of low code or even “no code” software as a way to speed up their builds, notes Paessler blogger Patrick Gebhardt.

Paessler too is highly interested in a no code approach, especially when it comes to innovating for the Internet of Things (IoT), Gebhardt says — an approach which can help developers of IoT offerings from smart buildings and environments to industrial or agricultural applications.

“Monitoring is our main competence, and it is from this specific strength that we have been developing new products for some time now,” he affirmed in this week’s Paessler blog.

“With Paessler BitDecoder you are now able to run visual payload decoding and display your data in an endpoint like Azure IoT Hub, AWS IoT and of course PRTG network monitor.

“And the PRTG Node-RED Connector enables a much wider range of customers to use PRTG in an IoT or IIoT environment in combination with Node-RED.”

For this, Paessler is providing a native Node-RED connector node for within Node-RED automation flows, installing it for free over the Node-RED palette-registry, npm or GitHub, notes Gebhardt.

A free beta version of Paessler BitDecoder can be downloaded here.

Paessler has also just released new versions of PRTG for Android and iOS, in a staged rollout.

“With PRTG for iOS or Android you can do nearly everything you can do in the PRTG web interface: for example, acknowledge alarms, pause and resume sensors, set priorities and favourites, scan your network status instantly, work with the ticket system, and edit object comments,” writes Paessler’s Sacha Neumeier.

“You can also access reports, send them as PDFs via email or print them with AirPrint. In addition, QR code scanning makes it easy to jump directly to a sensor or to add a user account to the app.”

More details in the full article, linked to above.

“If you centralise the management of mobile devices in your company, you might also want to distribute the monitoring apps PRTG for Android and PRTG for iOS via MDM (mobile device management). For this purpose, we provide the APK (Android application package) and the IPA file of our Android and iOS apps,” concludes Neumeier.

The announcements follow hard on the heels of the release of PRTG Desktop for Linux on 30 March – there’s a link to download the public beta on the blog post.
