Link SDK (formerly known as Link Kit SDK) is a device-side software development kit provided by IoT Platform. The SDK simplifies the development process and enables devices to connect with IoT Platform. After device manufacturers obtain the SDK, they can port the code based on business requirements. Then, the device manufacturers can integrate Link SDK into devices and connect the devices to IoT Platform.

Usage notes

Integration methods

The methods to integrate Link SDK vary based on device types.
  • IP devices: indicates the devices that support the TCP/IP protocol, such as Wi-Fi devices. Devices of this type can be directly integrated with Link SDK. WiFi Device
  • Non-IP devices: indicates the devices that do not support the TCP/IP protocol, such as ZigBee, BT, KNX, and ModBus devices. Devices of this type can connect to IoT Platform only by using a gateway that is integrated with Link SDK. GW Device
