AWS IoT Core

Easily and securely connect devices to the cloud

2.25 million connection minutes and 500,000 messages per month 

for 12 months with the AWS Free Tier 

Connect, manage, and scale your device fleets easily and reliably without provisioning or managing servers.

Choose your preferred communication protocol, including MQTT, HTTPS, MQTT over WSS, and LoRaWAN.

Secure device connections and data with mutual authentication and end-to-end encryption.

Filter, transform, and act upon device data on the fly, based on your defined business rules.

How it works

AWS IoT Core lets you connect billions of IoT devices and route trillions of messages to AWS services without managing infrastructure.
  • Message Broker
  • AWS IoT Core Connect and Manage

    Securely transmit messages to and from all of your IoT devices and applications with low latency and high throughput.

  • Mirror Device State
  • Use AWS IoT Core To Read and Set Device State

    With Device Shadow, store the latest state of a connected device so it can be read or set at any time, making the device appear to your applications as if it were online all the time.

  • Built-in Alexa
  • Use AWS IoT Core To Read and Set Device State

    The Alexa Voice Service (AVS) Integration for AWS IoT Core introduces a new virtual Alexa device in the cloud. Use a new set of AWS IoT-reserved MQTT topics to transfer audio messages between devices.

  • LoRaWAN Devices
  • Set up and manage a private LoRaWAN network by connecting LoRaWAN devices and gateways to the AWS cloud—all without developing or operating a LoRaWAN Network Server (LNS).

  • Amazon Sidewalk Devices
  • The integration of Amazon Sidewalk with AWS IoT Core, enables you to easily provision, onboard, and monitor your Amazon Sidewalk devices. Learn more about AWS IoT Core for Amazon Sidewalk.
