Connect Intel Edison to QNAP NAS via QIoT Suite Lite

Post by SunnyYou » Mon Jun 25, 2018 6:46 pm

Get started with Intel Edison (Node.js)
QIoT Suite Lite
In this tutorial, you will learn the basics of using Intel Edison (that runs on the Linux-based Yocto). You will then learn how to seamlessly connect your devices to QNAP NAS using QIoT Suite Lite.
Please ensure your Intel Edison and NAS are under the same LAN.

1. Configure your device
Configure your Intel Edison with an operating system, set up your development environment, and deploy an application to Intel Edison.

1.1 Download Intel Edison drivers
Download dicers for Intel Edison based on your host PC, available here:

Windows users
Mac users
Linux users

1.2 Configure and test your device
Getting started with Intel Edison
If this is your first time using Intel Edison, you must follow some steps to assemble it.

Follow steps 1-3 in the instructions.

- Step 1: Assemble boards and sensors.

- Step 2: Run setup tools.
Use the setup tool to flash the latest firmware on the Intel Edison development board via a convenient wizard. The setup tool also lets you enable SSH and Wi-Fi* connectivity to your board, as described in the steps to follow.

- Step 3: Download development environment.
Download the Intel® XDK cross-platform integrated development environment

Verify and upload your onBoardBlink project to Intel Edison
Creating your project
1. Launch the Intel XDK.
2. Follow the on-screen instructions to log in to your Intel® XDK account or sign up for a new Intel XDK account.
3. From the Projects tab, click Start a New Project in the bottom left. The Start a New Project page will opens.
4. In the Internet of Things Embedded Application list on the left, click Templates. A list of templates will be displayed on the right.

5. Select the Onboard LED Blink template, and click Continue.
6. You can modify the directory to store your projects in Project Directory.
7. Enter a name for the project in Project Name.

Connecting to the board
From the IoT Device drop-down list in the bottom left, select your development board. The Connect to your IoT Device dialog box will open.

1. If your development board is not included in the drop-down list, you must connect to your board manually. Select Add Manual Connectionand enter your board's IP address in Address.
2. If you have created a user name and password to log in to your board, enter them in User Name and Password. Otherwise, leave the default values.
3. Click "Connect".
4. The daemon must be updated if it is out of date. This will disconnect from the board, as the daemon has to be restarted. Follow the instructions to reconnect when prompted.
5. If the clock on your board and the Intel XDK IoT Edition is out of sync, click "Sync".
6. A confirmation message will display the connection status and IP address of your development board. Click "Dismiss". Your board is now connected.

Upload and run the project
1. Go to "Develop" tab and look for the IoT toolbar at the bottom of the window.

2. Click the Upload icon QIoT Suite Lite to upload your project to the board.
3. Click the Run icon QIoT Suite Lite to run your code. You should see a flashing LED on your board.
4. Click the Stop icon QIoT Suite Lite to stop the LED.
Congratulations, you have run your first IoT app using the Intel XDK IoT Edition, please refer to

1.3 Install Node.js and required libraries

Open a terminal application on your computer and connect to Intel Edison.
Install the latest Node,js

2. Create your device in QIoT Suite Lite
2.1 Install QIoT Suite Lite
QIoT Suite Lite can be installed from the App Center.

Launch and log in to QIoT Suite Lite. The default username and password is "admin".

2.2 Create a new IoT application
IoT Applications are a combination of Things, Rules, and Dashboards. We recommend that you first create a “Things” in IoT Application. This IoT Application allows you to keep a record of all of the devices that are connected to your NAS.

Rules make it possible to build IoT applications that gather, process, analyze and act on data generated by connected devices. Rules can apply to data from one or many devices, and it can take one or many actions in parallel.

Dashboards, turn your data into analytics and reports that provide real-time insights.

All these elements provide user a complete IoT Application environment.

If this is your first time to use QIoT Suite Lite, use QIoT Quick Setup to guide you through a quick setup of an IoT application. After reading the introduction, click Next.
