You’ll learn how to build a Node-RED application, integrate Watson services, and deploy on the cloud (Bluemix). To do that, you’ll complete the following tasks:

  • Configure the SensorTag to send readings to the Watson IoT Platform
  • Create a Node-RED application to listen for events coming from the SensorTag
  • Convert sensory (motion) input to English sentences
  • Connect a PLAYBULB Candle to the Watson IoT platform and use the Raspberry Pi as a gateway
  • Control the candle from the Node-RED application
  • Use the Natural Language Classifier and Natural Language Understanding services to interpret commands
  • Add a speech input capability to your application

Ultimately, you’ll be able to use motion to turn the light bulb on or off, change colors, and more.
