There are several ways to get started with AWS IoT Core depending on your use case and how you want to integrate the service into your use case. The AWS Management Console provides a web-based interface for accessing and managing all your AWS IoT resources. Programmatic access to IoT Core is enabled by the AWS CLI and AWS SDK.
To connect your hardware device, sensor, mobile app or a thing use the AWS IoT Device SDK. Choose from one of the AWS starter kits pre-packaged to connect to IoT Core. In addition, IoT Core is supported by a wide range of third party tools and gateways.
AWS Management Console
The AWS Management Console is a web-based interface for accessing and managing your AWS IoT Core resources. You can easily and securely create a thing, associate certificate, publish messages and define actions using the AWS Management Console.
The AWS SDK helps take the complexity out of coding by providing APIs for many AWS services including AWS IoT Core. All AWS SDKs are enabled for IoT Core. The single, downloadable package includes the code library, code samples, and documentation.
AWS IoT Device SDK
The AWS IoT Device SDK helps you to easily and quickly connect your hardware device or your mobile device to AWS IoT Core. It offers enhanced features so that you can seamlessly interact with the device gateway and the device shadow that will enable you to quick start your development. The Device SDK supports a variety types of devices, from basic to industrial hardware devices. Learn more about the AWS IoT Device SDKs.
AWS IoT Core Starter Kits
The AWS IoT Core Starter Kits enable you to move quickly from idea to prototype. These physical kits are designed to help accelerate cloud-powered prototype development of connected devices and connect securely to AWS IoT Core. The kits include development microcontroller development boards, sensors and actuators, the AWS IoT Device SDK, and a simple getting started guide so that you can easily find the best fit for your products. You can purchase the kits from Amazon.com. If you already have the hardware board, you can download the SDK and samples to get started in minutes.
