AWS IoT 1-Click FAQs

Q. What is AWS IoT 1-Click?

AWS IoT 1-Click is a new service that makes it easy for simple devices to trigger actions like Lambda functions. With AWS IoT 1-Click, simple devices are ready to securely connect to AWS IoT Core right out of the box. This makes it easy for developers to deploy these devices into their IoT applications and for device manufacturers to register their simple devices with AWS IoT Core at the factory.

Q. What are the features within AWS IoT 1-Click?

AWS IoT 1-Click enables the following:

Integration of simple devices: Customers will be able to integrate and deploy ready-to-use simple devices into their workflows, in order to act on events originating from these devices. Developers can activate devices by associating them to actions such as Lambda functions with a single click.

Choice of simple devices: AWS IoT 1-Click will support a range of simple devices that will be ready to use from the factory. During the preview, we will support the AWS IoT Enterprise Button and the AT&T LTE-M Button. Going forward, we are targeting support of different types of devices including asset trackers that will communicate over different communication mechanisms.

Secure connectivity: Device manufacturers will be able to build simple devices with appropriate credentials to connect to AWS IoT Core, thus enabling secure connectivity to the cloud.

Grouping with contextual data: With AWS IoT 1-Click, customers will be able to group their devices into projects based on their requirements including usage and location. Individual deployments within their projects can be defined, with user-specified contextual data such as user name and department ID.

Choice of actions: AWS IoT 1-Click will enable customers to choose from a set of pre-defined Lambda actions including sending email and SMS as triggers and associate them to devices.  Alternatively, customers can choose to use their own custom-defined Lambda functions.  

Usage and Status reports: Customers will be able to derive reports detailing usage and status of their deployed devices, using AWS IoT 1-Click. Reports include number of clicks on button-like devices, number of devices with less than 10% of remaining useful life, number of errors encountered in invoking device actions and user-configurable reports.

Mobile experience: AWS IoT 1-Click will provide a mobile application on iOS and Android platforms that will help customers track devices during and after deployment.

Q. What are simple devices?

Simple devices have a single purpose that can be associated to one action such as a Lambda function. This action can be triggered when the simple device is activated. Examples of simple devices include but are not limited to:

Button-like devices: These devices can be clicked to trigger particular actions. The AWS IoT Enterprise Button and the AT&T LTE-M Button will be supported during the preview.

Asset Trackers: Trackers on containers in warehouses or on trucks transporting materials enable location tracking for instant traceability and notification.

Temperature Sensors: Actions such as temperature control could be triggered based on temperatures reaching predefined thresholds, based on customer requirements.

Card readers: Devices to track entry/exit of authorized personnel into offices, laboratories, or factories as part of workplace procedures.
