When the device is unclaimed, the Ioto agent will regularly check with the Ioto service to see if it has been claimed. While unclaimed, it is "unmanaged" and awaiting orders.
The Ioto agent will check the Ioto service immediately on power-on, and then every 5 seconds with an exponentially increasing delay period up to a defined limit. If the device is rebooted, the polling process recommences.
Once claimed, when the agent next polls the Ioto service, it will receive management instructions and be redirected to the relevant AWS device cloud for ongoing management and the provisioning process is complete.
