In this demo, we're gonna work on installing Node-RED on a Windows 10 machine. Node-RED is use to wire different platforms together in different types of devices. So, we're gonna start off by going to the Node-RED installation page. We're gonna click on the 64 bit installation and download it, install it. Now, you see the installation's pretty straightforward. Now we're gonna install Node-RED from the command line. On a Windows machine, we're gonna run it from the Windows command line. We have to right click and run as administrator. And we're just gonna paste the command there. Okay, the installation's done. Now you can see the address there that we're gonna copy and paste into the browser to initiate it. So, the installation has been successful and we're ready to start working with Node-RED.
