Netvibes’ Dashboard of Things revolutionizes IoT by making it simple for anyone to program automatic interactions between devices, apps and data from the Netvibes dashboard. Take control of your Internet of Things by creating your own “Potion” with the Trigger(s) and Action(s) you want to take place: e.g., If A or B happen, then do X; Otherwise, do Y and Z.  Netvibes makes the magic happen, automatically, to obey your every command. Consumers can automate their homes and devices (e.g., Turn on the lights at sunset), while enterprises can automate their business logic (e.g., If the website goes down, text the administrator and automatically begin the reboot process through SSH). Learn more about Potions on our FAQ page or contact us for a free demo.

The 2015/16 IoT Awards winners were selected by a panel of judges and by the general public in a popular vote. IoT companies and products were honored across 21 different categories. For the category of Best IoT Technical Innovation, Netvibes’ Dashboard of Things was the top public vote-getter to win the accolade of People’s Choice.

Thanks to everyone for voting, and congratulations to all the winners!

New Facets in Universal Search: Tagged and Saved Articles


Universal Search (available for Netvibes VIP and Premium) makes it easy to find whatever you’re looking for in your dashboard. Simply type a keyword into the search bar or use Boolean operators to instantly find articles on any topic. You can also use semantic filters, called facets, to drill down into your content; for example, you can search by title, RSS feed, sentiment (negative/positive/neutral), or other facets.

We recently added 2 new facets to make Universal Search even more powerful. You can now search using facets for Saved articles or Tagged articles. Let’s see how it works.

New facet: Saved articles
Your dashboard collects a lot of articles and content, so you may want to save some of the articles to remember or read later. All Netvibes users have access to this feature: When you click on an article in your dashboard, simply click on the star to “save” the article.
