AWS IoT Events is now available in the AWS GovCloud (US-West) Region.

AWS IoT Events is a fully managed service that makes it easy to detect and respond to changes indicated by IoT sensors and applications. For example, you can use AWS IoT Events to detect malfunctioning machinery, a stuck conveyor belt, or a slowdown in production output. When an event is detected, AWS IoT Events automatically triggers actions or alerts so that you can resolve issues quickly, reduce maintenance costs, and increase operational efficiency.

Detecting events based on data from thousands of devices requires companies to write code to evaluate the data, deploy infrastructure to host the code, and secure the architecture from end-to-end, which is undifferentiated heavy lifting that customers want to avoid. Using AWS IoT Events, customers can now easily detect events like this at scale by analyzing data from a single sensor or across thousands of IoT sensors and hundreds of equipment management applications in near real time. With AWS IoT Events, customers use a simple interface to create detectors that evaluate device data and trigger AWS Lambda functions or notifications via Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) in response to events. For example, when temperature changes indicate that a freezer door is not sealing properly, AWS IoT Events can automatically trigger a text message to a service technician to address the issue.

To get started with AWS IoT Events, launch a sample detector model and test inputs to it from the AWS IoT Events console. For a full list of AWS Regions where AWS IoT Events is available, visit the AWS Region table. Visit our AWS IoT website to learn more about AWS IoT services.
