IoT for Non-IP Devices

Connected devices have found their way into a myriad of commercial and consumer applications. Industries have already moved, or are in the process of moving to, operational models that require them to measure broad data points in real time and optimize their operations based on their analysis of this data. The move to smart connected […]

Access Cross Account Resources Using the AWS IoT Rules Engine

The AWS IoT platform enables you to connect your internet-enabled devices to the AWS cloud via MQTT/HTTP/Websockets protocol. Once connected, the devices can send data to MQTT topic(s). Data ingested on MQTT topics can be routed into AWS services (like Amazon S3, Amazon SQS, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Lambda etc.), by configuring rules in AWS IoT […]

Bites of IoT – Rules Engine and Amazon SNS

Welcome to another installment in the Bites of IoT blog series. In this bite, we will use the AWS IoT rules engine to select and route a message to Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS). Specifically, we’ll send a text message to a phone number when someone rings a virtual doorbell. Concepts Covered in This […]

Just-in-Time Registration of Device Certificates on AWS IoT

In an earlier blog post about certificates, we discussed how use-your-own-certificate support in AWS IoT lets customers use device certificates signed and issued by their own certificate authority (CA) to connect and authenticate with AWS IoT. This is an alternative to using certificates generated by AWS IoT. Using your own certificate with AWS IoT is […]

Anomaly Detection Using AWS IoT and AWS Lambda

One of the biggest benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT) is the ability to get contextual insight from sensor data. Before you analyze sensor data, you may want to remove anomalies. Sometimes, though, you may want to analyze the anomalies or at least be notified of their presence. In this blog post, we will […]

Device Simulation with AWS IoT and AWS Lambda

The AWS IoT platform enables you to connect your devices and build scalable Internet of Things solutions with the breadth of Amazon Web Services. When shopping for a new tool, many developers want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. When evaluating an IoT solution, it’s not practical to do so at […]

Archive AWS IoT Device Shadows in Amazon Elasticsearch Service

In AWS IoT, you can create a device shadow (sometimes referred to as a thing shadow) that will be used as a communication layer between your mobile/cloud application and your devices connected to AWS IoT. The shadow is a persistent, virtual representation of your devices. Because it always has a point-in-time view of the state of your […]

Elliptic Curve Cryptography and Forward Secrecy Support in AWS IoT

Introduction AWS IoT now supports Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) for devices connecting to AWS IoT using TLS. You can now request an EC-based certificate for your device from AWS IoT or register your device using an existing EC-based certificate in order to establish a TLS connection. You can also connect your devices to AWS IoT […]
