This Getting Started guide covers setting up your groov View project and configuring it within the Node-RED for groov View nodes. This guide also provides a few examples of how to use it all.


To use Node-RED for groov View, the following programs and packages must be available:

  • groov 3.3
    • The Data Store device used by the groov View nodes was added in groov View 3.3.
    • The latest version of groov is available at
  • Node-RED
    • Node-RED is pre-installed in groov EPIC processors (GRV-EPIC-PR1) and the groov Edge Appliance (GROOV-AR1).
    • You may also run your own instance of Node-RED on a computer or device, following our installation instructions.
  • groov View Nodes
    • The groov View nodes must be installed within Node-RED.


Beyond the above prerequisites, the following steps must be taken to use the nodes:

  1. Configure a Data Store device within the groov View project.
  2. Configure the nodes to communicate with the groov View project and a Data Store.
  3. Create flows in Node-RED to use the Data Store.

Each of these steps is described in the following sections.
