What is iot devices.More and more everyday objects are also using the network to connect to the cloud, thus forming the well-known "Network of Things", or "IoT". IoT devices are devices that connect to larger Internet-connected devices.Examples of IoT devices include all types of sensors, cameras, microphones, and RFID transmitters. These devices collect data and send it to a data processing unit, which uses the data or forwards it to a remote device for processing.

Alibaba Cloud IoT device management advantages

1 .Register devices quickly

With IoT Device Management, you can securely bulk add device attributes such as device name, type and year of manufacture, certificates, and access policies to the IoT registry, assign these attributes to devices, and quickly queue large numbers of connected devices Put into use.

2 .Simple IoT device organization

With IoT Device Management, you can group devices and manage access policies for those groups. This allows you to easily track, operate, and manage devices based on business and security requirements, such as deploying firmware updates to all devices in a building, or specifying how devices communicate with each other. You can create hierarchies for device groups, such as grouping multiple sensors on a single vehicle, and then grouping multiple vehicles into a queue. This way, your devices inherit access policies in a hierarchy of groups.

3 .Quickly locate connected devices

IoT Device Management lets you quickly search and find any IoT device across your entire fleet of devices in near real-time. You can easily find devices by device ID and a combination of different attributes, such as device status and type, for action or troubleshooting.

4 .Easy remote device management

IoT Device Management makes it easy to keep your fleet of devices up and running. With Alibaba Cloud IoT Device Management, you can remotely update the software running on devices deployed in the field, ensuring that devices are always running the latest software. You can also perform queue-wide operations remotely, such as reboots, factory resets, and security patches.
