node-red-contrib-iot-virtual-device 0.1.3

A set of nodes to help you create simulated IoT devices connected to IBM Watson IoT Platform.

npm install node-red-contrib-iot-virtual-device

This module provides a set of nodes in Node-RED to rapidly implement simulated IoT device behavior and use it to run many device instances.

Read here how to deploy a sample application to IBM Bluemix


Run the following command in your Node-RED user directory (typically ~/.node-red):

npm install node-red-contrib-iot-virtual-device


  • Device Schema (configuration node) to define the device type
  • Start Device to create a new instance of a device type
  • Generate Event to send events to the IoT platform
  • Set Properties to set properties of a device instance
  • Device Function to write customized behavior using a specific device instance properties
  • Device Listener to react on changes in device instances state (e.g. property change)
