We do not have an RPM package at this point, however, you can build from source:

sudo yum install boost libudev boost-thread boost-regex git scons gcc-c++ boost-devel systemd-devel asio-devel
git clone --recursive https://github.com/nonolith/connect.git
cd connect
scons -j5

You can then run ./nonolith-connect as root, or follow the notes in the readme to configure Nonolith Connect as a daemon under an unprivileged user id.
