What is Amazon IoT Device Management

As many IoT deployments consist of hundreds of thousands to millions of devices, it is essential to track, monitor, and manage connected device fleets. You need to ensure your scale and diversity of IoT devices work properly and securely after they have been deployed. You also need to secure access to your devices, monitor health, detect and remotely troubleshoot problems, and manage software and firmware updates.

Amazon IoT Device Management makes it easy to securely onboard, organize, monitor, and remotely manage IoT devices at scale. With Amazon IoT Device Management, you can register your connected devices individually or in bulk, and easily manage permissions so that devices remain secure. You can also organize your devices, monitor and troubleshoot device functionality, query the state of any IoT device in your fleet, and send firmware updates over-the-air (OTA). Amazon IoT Device Management is agnostic to device type and OS, so you can manage devices from constrained microcontrollers to connected cars all with the same service. Amazon IoT Device Management allows you to scale your fleets and reduce the cost and effort of managing large and diverse IoT device deployments.

Benefits of Using Amazon IoT Device Management

Fast Device Onboarding

With Amazon IoT Device Management, you can securely add device attributes like device name, type and manufacturing year, certificates and access policies to the IoT Registry in bulk, assign them to devices, and put large fleets of connected devices into service quickly.

Simple IoT Device Organization

Amazon IoT Device Management lets you organize your devices into groups and manage access policies for these groups. This makes it easy to track, operate, and manage your devices according to business and security requirements, such as deploying a firmware update for all devices in a building or defining how devices communicate with each other. You can create a hierarchy for your groups such as grouping multiple sensors within a single vehicle and grouping multiple vehicles in a fleet. Then, your devices will inherit access policies based on the group hierarchy.

Locate Connected Devices Quickly

Amazon IoT Device Management lets you quickly search and find any IoT device across your entire device fleet in near real-time. You can easily find devices based on a combination of attributes like device ID, device state and type, and quickly find specific devices so that you can take action or troubleshoot.

Easy Remote Device Management

Amazon IoT Device Management makes it easy for you to maintain the health of your device fleet. With Amazon IoT Device Management, you can remotely update the software running on your devices after they have been deployed in the field – allowing you to ensure that devices are always running on the latest software. You can also remotely execute actions such as reboots, factory resets, and security patches. With secure tunneling, you can easily connect to and troubleshoot individual devices that may be located behind restricted firewalls.

How it works

Amazon IoT Device Management helps you register, organize, monitor, and remotely manage IoT devices at scale. Amazon IoT Device Management integrates with Amazon IoT Core to easily connect devices to the cloud and other devices so you can remotely manage your fleet. Amazon IoT Device Defender audits and monitors fleets and sends alerts if there are deviations from what you have defined as normal behavior for each device. If you determine that you need to take an action based on an alert, you can use Amazon IoT Device Management to take mitigating actions such as pushing security fixes. You can also easily send over-the-air (OTA) updates to your Amazon IoT Greengrass or FreeRTOS devices, such as the latest Amazon IoT Greengrass software version or a new firmware update for your FreeRTOS device. 

When to Use Amazon IoT Device Management

Amazon IoT Device Management is critical across industrial, consumer, and commercial applications such as industrial and connected home. With Amazon IoT Device Management, customers can manage large and diverse device fleets such as operational technology systems, machines, cameras, appliances, vehicles, and more.

Industrial Applications

Amazon IoT Device Management enables you to connect large and diverse industrial device fleets quickly and remotely manage and monitor connected devices deployed across multiple industrial sites. You can monitor usage and performance metrics for devices across industrial sectors such as manufacturing, oil & gas, and mining. AWAmazon S IoT Device Management also allows you to monitor metadata and policy changes with service alerts so you are informed about any adjustments to your devices' configuration.

Consumer Applications

With Amazon IoT Device Management, you can control the deployment speed of your over-the-air (OTA) updates to consumer devices already in the field such as connected light bulbs or WiFi routers. You can send an update to ensure devices are running the latest software and push bug fixes or firmware updates to patch security vulnerabilities and improve device functionality. You can also create a continuous job that updates your devices to the latest firmware upon first activation.

Commercial Applications

Amazon IoT Device Management makes it easy to group your device fleet into a hierarchical structure based on function, security requirements, or any other category for your business. You can group all sensors in a room, group all rooms on the same floor, and group all floors within a building. With fleet indexing, you can understand the state of any connected device and perform actions across multiple devices at once. You can use bulk provisioning to register and quickly onboard a fleet of devices to be deployed at a new building or worksite.
