Recommended ways to use QIoT Containers in Container Station

QNAP redefines NAS for IoT, providing comprehensive "QIoT Containers" for QNAP’s Container Station platform to help quickly structure your IoT environment and deployment.

Click "Create Container", search for "iot", and go to the "IoT" section. You will see all the QIoT Container lists. Click "Install" to add a container.


You can learn more about QIoT Containers, including links to references and sample code, at https://www.qnap.com/solution/qiot-containers/en/index.php

Most sources provide user interfaces. We recommend using the user interfaces from official sources when using QIoT Containers.


User Interface Example: Freeboard

The user interface provided by Freeboard


For QIoT Containers sources that do not provide a user interface, click the hyperlink provided in the QIoT Containers website reference section, go to the source's offical website, and see which functions are recommended to use.

For some customized developments, for example: If commands such as "apt-get update" needs to be used, go to “/etc/apt/sources.list” and replace "qnap.dorowu.com" with the designated source site which can be found by using commend lsb_release -a


To find the description and switch the source list from "qnap.dorowu.com"  to that server site (for example: archive.ubuntu.com) by using commands

sed -i ‘s/qnap.dorowu.com/archive.ubuntu.com/g’ /etc/apt/sources.list

(For customized developments, users will be responsible for how they use QIoT Containers.)
