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. Therefore it should not come as a big surprise that we […]

Avoid the chaos of GDPR in the realm of IoT

Interpretation of GDPR in IoT devices - Man holding Ipad

Faced with stricter regulations on data processing under the EU’s GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and a growing demand for IoT-functionality within the field of consumer devices, companies now have an important decision to make when it comes to choosing the correct IoT platform. In this blog post, we’ll boil it down to just one […]

IoT trends to look out for in 2019

Hand shows the numbers 2019 emerging from the network connections.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing at an exponential rate and being embraced by companies in every sector. Increasingly, IoT technology is providing practical solutions and operational enhancements in both industry and commerce. Gartner predicts that the amount of IoT connected devices will jump from 8 to 20 billion between 2018 and 2020. Here […]

P2P IoT vs. Database-driven IoT – which one to choose?

Database-driven IoT is when data from the IoT device travels to a centralized server that stores and process the data in a cloud database, as you can see in the illustration above. A use-case could be the current temperature from a thermostat. In this use-case, the thermostat measures the temperature via a sensor and sends […]

Hyperspectral technology and real-time IoT in drones

Close up of Drone with IoT

Nabto has newly been involved in a bigger research project funded by the European Union, where they are using IoT in drones. The main focus of the project is the development of autonomous systems used in different fields such as automobiles, trains, and farming. Furthermore, the goal is to develop verification and validation tools to […]
