Q. What is AWS IoT 1-Click?
AWS IoT 1-Click is a new service that makes it easy for simple devices to trigger AWS Lambda functions for required actions. 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 applications without the need for creating, installing and managing certificates. AWS IoT 1-Click provides device manufacturers with the tools and APIs needed to provision certificates at the time of manufacturing and register the devices with AWS IoT.
Q. What are simple devices?
Simple devices are Internet connected devices that are connected through different methods including Wi-Fi, LTE-M, NB-IoT, SigFox etc. These devices have a single purpose that can be associated with actions such as AWS Lambda functions. This action can be triggered in a simple and scalable manner with AWS IoT 1-Click. Examples of simple devices include but are not limited to:
Button-like devices: These devices can be clicked to trigger particular actions.
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.
Q. Which simple devices are supported with AWS IoT 1-Click?

Q. I am a device manufacturer and would like my devices to be supported with AWS IoT 1-Click. What needs to be done for these devices to be supported?
Please contact us at email@example.com with details of your devices and we can work with you on your request.
Q. I was part of the AWS IoT 1-Click Preview Program. Will my buttons work with the General Availability of AWS IoT 1-Click?
Yes. However, you would need to recreate your projects and re-define your contextual data for devices in your account. You will also need to upgrade to the launch version of the AWS IoT 1-Click mobile app. There is no need to whitelist your account either for the console or the mobile app.
Q. I was part of the AWS IoT Button Enterprise Program. Will my buttons work on with AWS IoT 1-Click?
No, the AWS IoT Button Enterprise Program has been retired. The buttons that were supported with that program will not work with AWS IoT 1-Click.
Q. Will I be able to get branded custom labels on the AWS IoT Enterprise Buttons with AWS IoT 1-Click?
No, the AWS IoT 1-Click service does not include branded custom labels. The buttons come with standard AWS IoT Enterprise Button labels.
Q. What do I do if my button does not work in spite of being connected to the Internet?
Please visit the AWS IoT 1-Click documentation to troubleshoot the problem. The LED colors on the button should help you to determine if the problem is with the physical device or the network. If the problem persists, please contact AWS support.
