Recently the technology industry has been laying foundations for the eponymous Internet of Things (IoT): efficient publish-subscribe protocols; process control schemas for household items; and improved low-power radio communications. Accelerator controls and IoT have several aspects in common - small payloads, low latency, dashboard/synoptic data presentation format are some examples. The IoT now provides several open-source projects which can provide a partial implementation of one or more accelerator controls software features. Because development is typically a lower priority for accelerator controls groups, there is a valid case to try and utilise the free efforts of others for the benefit of accelerator controls. In this paper, the authors present examples of the use of IoT frameworks for synoptic display/GUI development. The work in this paper enables other developers to access this resource and experiment with their own systems.
