This is a simple version of Node Red to capture the sensor data. I am streaming to IBM cloud and the Influx database I have created. There is no configuration of the data - it just works. I am testing on the Raspberry Pi 3. The Pi will act as a gateway. Data  from the sensor tag will be saved by the Influx node. The port for influx is 8086 appended to the Pi's IP address. The data base has been set up in Influx and the measurement is called watch. A measurement is similar to a table. We need to define this to setup a data source in Grafana.
