Installation and Configuration
Installation of NodeJS and [thing-it-node]
First, install nodejs on your computer (e.g. your PC or your Raspberry Pi).
Then install [thing-it-node] via
npm install -g thing-it-node
Initialization and Start of [thing-it-node]
The [thing-it-device-google-ip] Plugin is installed with [thing-it-node], hence there is no need to install it separately.
The Plugin supports Autodiscovery, hence you only have to create a directory in which you intend to run the configuration, e.g.
mkdir ~/google-test cd ~/google-test
and then start [thing-it-node] via
google Device Setup
As Auto-discovery is not in place yet, you will have to configure the connected Devices manually as e.g. in the sample configuration.
The following screenshot shows the Devices in sample configuration:
