 +=== Q: How do I restart Node-RED from the Venus GUI? ===
 +
 +In order to restart Node-RED you need to disable and enable it from the menu. You can find this under //Venus OS Large Features -> Node-RED//.
 +
 +=== Q: How does safe mode work and what is it? ===
 +
 +From the Venus GUI you can select Node-RED to be enabled in "safe mode". This means that Node-RED will start without starting the flows. This allows you to open the flows in the editor and make changes without the flows running. When you deploy your changes, the flows are then started. The safe mode can be handy if one of the flows has an error that causes high CPU loads on the Venus device or other issues.
