Vermon Web

A vermon Plugin / API tool to monitor your Environment, Motion sensors and Notifiers. From version 0.5.11 onwards this tool no longer works standalone, but is a plugin of vermon, so you require to install vermon npm package and can use vermon-web via:

let vermon = require('vermon')
let vermon_web = require('vermon-web')
