Raspberry Pi 3 IoT – Perfect for Nabto

A few days ago (29/2-2016) the new Raspberry Pi 3 was announced. Of course we were all excited here at the Nabto headquarters and quickly bought a few. Since they are reviewed as the perfect platform for IoT we wanted to check out if it is perfect for Nabto as well. Spoiler alert: it is ! Setting […]

The CoffeePi (Part 1 of 2)

When I asked if I could hack the 1300$ (8800 dkk) coffee machine at the Nabto headquarters the responses varied from “no way” to “I’ll give it 30 % chance of success”. Eventually they surrendered to my request, so let’s see if it all worked out! Since this project was rather substantial, the coffee machine saga will be split […]

Security in Nabto P2P/IoT solutions

Security in IoT and especially in home security solutions has been subject for several recent articles and debate, for instance see http://thenewstack.io/snooping-webcam-reveals-security-dangers-internet-things/. Since the article above covers the general security issues of P2P, the same concerns of course apply to Nabto based solutions – this post addresses these concerns and summarizes the security principles of our […]

More specifically, in the summertime, when the sun shines heavily the battery would be filled within an hour after sunrise. The rest of the day, the charge controller would simply waste/curtail excess energy […]
