TeamViewer for Raspberry Pi

It is one small step for TeamViewer, but one giant leap for the technological perspectives of a groundbreaking idea:  The TeamViewer Host for Raspberry Pi marks the turning point when the uncommitted talk about the Internet of Things (IoT) ends, and its true application begins.

IoT in particular requires secure connections to devices that very often do not come with graphical interfaces. That is precisely what the TeamViewer Host for Raspberry PI enables you to do. It allows control of a variety of IoT applications with our industry-leading TeamViewer solution, familiar to millions of users around the world

The TeamViewer Host for Raspberry Pi is a system service that allows for the unattended access of Raspberry Pi devices so that they can be maintained, controlled, or managed.

„Our team had a lot of fun developing our new app for Raspbian OS – it was an interesting challenge as we had to adapt our thinking and approach to a new environment", says Mike Eissele, Vice President Engineering at TeamViewer. "But our highly motivated team came through with flying colors. As a result, I am happy to announce the release of this preview version in response to many requests from the TeamViewer user community, and is our next step into the IoT space.”
