Please note that this section describes a software package which has been superseded. We do not recommend the use of remoteit 3.x for new designs. For instructions on downloading and installing the most recent device package, please follow this link.
We only provide the amd64 version of the remoteit package for Debian, as Node v12 is not available for 32-bit platforms. For support of remote.it features on 32 bit Debian-based platforms, use the connectd package.
If you need to update your remoteit package using a remoteit connection, for example using SSH or VNC, please see: Updating the remoteit or connectd packages using a remote.it SSH connection. Failure to follow this procedure will result in loss of connection and inability to restore it without rebooting or accessing the device directly.
As with any Node.js application on Ubuntu the Node version in the Ubuntu or Debian repository is VERY old so you will have to execute this command first to add the correct repository to your system (this one is for Node.js v12)
curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_12.x | sudo -E bash - sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
curl -LO https://downloads.remote.it/debian/latest/remoteit_amd64.deb md5sum remoteit_amd64.deb
Confirm that the displayed md5 checksum matches the value displayed on the downloads page.
Install the remoteit package with:
sudo apt install -y ./remoteit_amd64.deb
Configure your Device with remote.it
Now that remoteit is installed, jump to this page to learn how to configure your Device and add Services to it.
