10/n #AWS 1: Phew! Now for the #AWS side of things. If all you want to build is a Wi-Fi device that provides a toggle/counter, AWS IoT 1-click is for you. Get readymade devices from AWS. What happens in the cloud, on recving the device data is configurable…
11/n #AWS 2: For more complex devices, Amazon-freeRTOS is a complete operating system that powers the micro-controllers that go into most connected devices. This makes it easy to program, deploy, secure and manage these devices… #freertos #iot @awscloud
12/n #AWS 3: AWS Greengrass literally brings the cloud to your device. The #Greengrass runtime lets devices directly run #Lambda functions thus reducing response latencies & bandwidth consumption while allowing dvlprs to use familiar lambda dev models.
13/n #AWS 4: And now for AWS offerings on the cloud. AWS IoT Core allows devices to connect to a cloud using the lightweight #MQTT protocol. With a rules engine in AWS IoT, messages to/from the device can be routed to any other AWS module or API endpoint…
14/n #AWS 5: AWS IoT Analytics is helpful for running analysis on your unstructured IoT Data… #IoT @awscloud
15/n #AWS 6: AWS Device Defender is useful for audit and notifications of abnormal behaviour or insecure policies/configurations
