Developing an effective device UI can take much longer than you think. Most companies expend years of developer time creating their device UIs. Kickstart for Ioto is a sample device management application that can dramatically shorten your development cycle for creating a bespoke local device management app.

Cloud-based Management

The Ioto Agent is pre-integrated with the AWS IoT cloud.

  • Optionally enable cloud-based management per-device at any time.
  • Centrally manage one or many devices from the cloud.
  • Transparent provisioning with X.509 certificates for secure communications.
  • Securely send device data to the cloud.
  • Command and control one or millions of devices from a single location.
  • Transparent data synchronization from device to cloud.
  • Locally invoke AWS APIs on the device to interact with any AWS service.
  • Easily create device clouds in any AWS region via the Device Builder.
