Welcome to true Fleet Management for Raspberry Pi
This page will guide you through the installation of Weaved's Fleet Management tool "remot3.it" on your Pi.
Use remot3.it to make secure, private connections to your Pi across the Internet and automate repetitive bulk operations using a "one-to-many" command line interface to 10s, 100s, or 1000s of Pi in the field.
Try it for free!
remot3.it helps you manage your fleet of networked devices from any browser or through our API interface. Use remot3.it as a "one-to-many" command line interface to your entire fleet.
Manage a fleet of remote IP connected computers / devices / VMs from anywhere using individual connections and bulk shell scripts. You can make direct 1:1 connections to any application on a TCP port on any computer/device/VM in your fleet. For example, connect to your devices via ssh (remote terminal), web interfaces (http(s)), and/or remote desktop VNC or RDP. And create your own shell scripts, upload them, and run them across your entire fleet.
Use these instructions ONLY if you are installing remot3.it on a Pi that has no pre-existing Weaved or remot3.it installation. We recommend use of latest Raspbian Jessie version.
If you already have Weaved installed on your Pi and also have physical access to it over a LAN or direct keyboard connection then click here for the upgrade instructions.
If you are are attempting to upgrade a Pi from Weaved to remot3.it ... and your Pi is located across the Internet on a different network you'll need to use the remote upgrade instructions here.
Use your remot3.it account or your existing Weaved account:
You can use your existing weaved.com account to login at https://www.remot3.it
If you don't have an account at remot3.it or Weaved, then you will need to sign up for a free remot3.it account before running the remot3.it installation. If you have not already done so, please create an account here: https://www.remot3.it You'll only need to provide a valid e-mail address.
We recommend you start with a fresh SDCard and an up to date Raspbian Jessie image. After you have installed Raspbian, make sure your Pi has an Internet connection and open up a terminal window to the Pi command line using either SSH or a keyboard, mouse, and HDMI monitor.
from the command line on your Pi type:
sudo apt-get update
then download the remot3.it deb package from the Pi Foundation repository. This command will download and install the remot3.it deb package on your Pi.
sudo apt-get install weavedconnectd
now you are ready to set-up remot3.it on your Pi. Type the following command to get started.
you should see the Sign In Menu in your terminal window as given below. Enter Menu option "1" to Sign In to your remot3.it (or Weaved) account. If you don't already have a remot3.it (or Weaved) account you can create one by entering Menu item "2" instead.
after you sign in you will be prompted to enter a device name for your Pi (ex. my_Pi_001) as shown below.
next select menu item 1 to Attach/reinstall remot3.it to a Service. You will now see the Protocol Selection Menu.
Select the menu item desired to enable your Pi's TCP services (ex. SSH) for remote access. We recommend installing remot3.it for SSH on port 22 to get started. (menu item "1")
When you are done adding services to remot3.it just enter "5" (Return to previous menu) and Exit out of the installer menus.
That's it. You made it! Now you can connect to your Pi from anywhere and also upload shell scripts to execute across one or multiple Pis.
Connect to your Pi using remot3.it
Now go to https://www.remot3.it and login.
You will see your Pi in the "Manage Devices" view. Click on the "Device Name" to connect !

Sample script and how to run it on your Pi fleet:
Raspberry Pi System Requirements:
These instructions will guide you through the installation of remot3.it on any Raspberry Pi running the latest Raspbian OS (Jessie versions). remot3.it works with Raspberry Pi 3 / Pi 2 / B/B+/A/A+ / Pi Zero and the Compute Module hardware versions.
Use NOOBS or Raspbian from https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/ and follow the instructions from the Pi foundation to get your Pi running with Raspbian Jessie. If you need to use an existing SDCard just make sure it doesn't have an earlier installation of Weaved on it.
Your Pi must have a live Internet connection to perform these instructions and to use remot3.it.
