Introduction: Save Way Home - With Simple Node.js Server on Intel Edison
On kids way home, something may go wrong and kids will be late.
Schedule a time and notify parents when they are not home by that time!
Use your mobile phone or web to register a time you will check in again and notify friends and family if you fail to check in by that time!
Cloud server on Intel Edison to manage timer and notification.
Client can register through phone or web app.
Step 1: Setup Intel Edison
Setup your Intel Edison
Access Linux console on Edison through serial port
Now you should be able to manipulate Edison as a mini Linux PC
Step 2: Connect Edison to Internet Resource
Step 3: Run Node.js Web Server
Start it as normal node.js application, "npm install" than "npm start" in the demo case
Access your Edison server through Internet
It acts like node.js server you've seen, in the demo I use the express framework
Have been test accessing on LAN, client side browser and Edison server results are shown in picture
