node-red-contrib-monzo

This is a node-red package that will allow you to retrive information from monzo, using your access token.

Please Note - Monzo is a bank that is currently only available for UK residents.

This is an easy to use node, all you have to do is input a access token and select what information you want under the request dropdown.

Installation

Install via npm
npm install node-red-contrib-monzo

Getting your temporary token

To get your access token you will need to go to "https://developers.monzo.com/api/playground" and log in with your monzo account, you will see your access token on the playground page. This token will last roughly 6 hours.

Getting your permanent token

In order to have permanent authentication, this will require you to set up a monzo API client see "https://developers.monzo.com/apps/new", so that you can have a clientID and a API secret. (please note, the client will need Confidential set to TRUE, otherwise it will not automatically refresh). If node-red is left not running, the system will lose its window to refresh its token, meaning the next time you run node-red, your token will be invalid. You will need to re-authorise.

How to use this node.

After you have placed the node, enter its configuration you can either add a temporary token or a clientID and API secret. If you added the clientID and secret you will now need to go through the authentication process by clicking "Authenticate With Monzo". Once a access token is added, select the request type you would like to do. To make a request simply inject anything into the input node to get a response from the output node.

Capability

This node can retreive three kinds of information from your monzo account.

  • Account Information
  • Balance Information
  • Pots
