AWS IoT 1-Click is a service that makes it easy for simple devices to trigger AWS Lambda functions that execute a specific action. Some examples of possible actions include calling technical support, reordering goods and services, or locking and unlocking doors and windows. Simple devices are cloud-connected, single-purpose devices like buttons, badge readers, asset trackers, and motion sensors. The AWS IoT Enterprise Button, based on the Amazon Dash Button hardware, is a simple device that you can buy and use with the AWS IoT 1-Click service. You can use the AWS IoT Enterprise Button to capture quick customer feedback without burdening customers with time-consuming questionnaires. For example, in an airport lounge, patrons can press one of five buttons to rate their overall experience on a scale from one to five.
Creating Lambda triggers for any of your simple devices is easy. You just download the 1-Click mobile app from Google Play or the Apple App Store and choose from the list of devices that are already preconfigured to securely connect to AWS. After selecting your device, you choose the Lambda function you want to run when the device sends the trigger. You can write Lambda functions to start or stop a machine or remotely control your home appliances. Once you select the Lambda function you want to use, you can deploy it to your device with a single click. After your devices are deployed, AWS IoT 1-Click provides reports so you can track the utilization and status of deployed devices.
