Real-Time IoT Device Monitoring with Kinesis Data Analytics is a solution that can help you more easily monitor your IoT device connectivity and activity in real-time. This solution automatically provisions the services necessary to record and visualize device connectivity and activity metrics for your IoT devices. Real-Time IoT Device Monitoring with Kinesis Data Analytics is designed to provide a framework for visualizing metrics in real-time, allowing you to focus on adding new metrics rather than underlying infrastructure operations.  

For customers without a method to record and visualize IoT device metrics, this solution can provide valuable insight that can help you make better-informed decisions that increase the reliability, availability, and performance of your IoT devices.

The solution deploys an AWS IoT rule that sends device data to Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, which archives the data in Amazon S3 and sends it to an Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics application that computes metrics in real-time. The solution uses Amazon DynamoDB to durably store the computed data. The solution also features a customizable dashboard that visualizes your device connectivity and activity metrics in real-time. For pricing details, see the pricing webpage for each AWS service you will be using in this solution.
