In addition to computers, UI's, sensors, and other devices, humans are one of the most important components of a distributed system. Within the nio Platform, humans can interact with a system via several common notification blocks.
Whether you are a farmer who would like to receive a text when the soil moisture drops below a certain threshold in your vineyard, or a plant manager who needs to receive a warning email when vital motors are about to fail, nio has the ability to easily configure a communication method (or methods) that work best for you.
|Communication Type||Recommended||Account Setup*|

*Note: all notification blocks require an account in order to properly configure the blocks within nio. This can be accomplished by visiting each app's respective website for account creation.
