Protect your customers’ privacy with direct connectivity

You’ve probably heard of several cases involving digital privacy issues such as customer data leaking, GDPR breaches, or general lack of cybersecurity. This only stresses the importance of considering the level of privacy in an IoT solution – not only to increase end-user confidence and willingness to invest in an IoT-enabled device, but also to […]

A developer-friendly IoT solution

A P2P-based IoT solution for your devices is, in general, simpler to develop and manage than the traditional server-based solution. Read along to get the answer of how a direct connection is established, and which communication patterns are supported to enable a high-performing, developer-friendly IoT solution. The design of a P2P-based IoT solution vs. a […]

Low latency in IoT – why is it important?

A slow website is bad news, right? Not only can it be incredibly irritating, it actually has a huge impact on the user experience. The same thing is applied in many Internet of Things (IoT) devices – a market that is rapidly growing week by week. This means that is now more important than ever […]

AWS Secure Tunneling vs Azure Device Stream vs Nabto IoT Platform

In recent months both Amazon and Microsoft have launched new IoT solutions to create more secure tunneling between the end-user and the IoT device. The two solutions, the AWS IoT Device Management and the Azure IoT Device Stream have a lot in common, but compared to the Nabto IoT platform they still lack some important […]

How to make a small, low-cost, remote accessible security camera with an ESP32

In our former blog post ‘RTSP P2P streaming through Nabto‘, where we talked about how to create an app that enabled remote accesses to an RTSP camera, we used a large Linux-based camera. Later on, we have received many requests on how to do the same type of integration to a ‘low-cost’ WI-FI module-based camera […]

Pairing and Access Control: Part 2 – Client Implementation

This is the second blog post of the two posts about access control in Nabto. The first post introduced access control and described how to use the uNabto framework and the access control list (ACL) module to enforce access control and pair users. Recall, the overall flow is as follows: user creates an RSA keypair […]

Pairing and Access Control: Part 1 – Intro and Device

This blog post is the first of two that describe all the steps necessary to implement a paired public key authentication (PPKA) based Nabto solution. This first part introduces concepts, explains how access control works in Nabto and dives into the details of implementing the uNabto device side of access control. Device in this context […]

Guide to use Mikroelektronika’s ‘mikromedia+ for PIC32MX7’ with Nabto AMP heat control app

This is a guest blog written by software and hardware developer Bo Kristensen. In this blog post we will provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to get the Mikroelektronika’s ’mikromedia+ for PIC32MX7‘ up running with the Nabto open source AMP Heat control app, which is available for download on Google Play and Apple’s […]

How to use ESP32 for cost-optimized and low-powered P2P remote control of Modbus-based devices

This blog post is written by guest writer Michael Paar from our developer partner Connictro.  Introduction As a development partner, we have received a request to provide a solution for controlling Modbus from ultra-low-cost/low power WiFi modules like Espressif ESP32, inspired by the blog post about controlling Modbus devices via the Nabto P2P Platform from […]

How to P2P remote control Modbus-based devices

You can say a lot about Modbus, like “old and primitive” but it’s definitely also a protocol that is very widely used and common in many products today. However, it is worth remembering that primitive is sometimes good, especially when you are interfacing systems. The modbus slave (blue box) is a Digital/Analog converter that can […]
