AWS IoT Device Management makes it easy for you to manage your fleets of connected devices at any scale. You only pay for what you use, and there are no minimum fees. You will be billed separately for the number of devices registered with our device provisioning workflow, the number of remote actions (e.g. a firmware update) sent to your devices, and the number of index updates and queries for your Fleet Index.

Pricing at a glance

Device Provisioning

Device Provisioning allows you to register your connected devices in bulk. Your device provisioning costs are based on the number of devices you register.

Device Provisioning  
Things Registered

AWS China (Beijing) Region

Operated by SINNET

(per 1,000 things registered) ¥0.90
Device Provisioning  
Things Registered

AWS China (Ningxia) Region

Operated by NWCD

(per 1,000 things registered) ¥0.90

For example, if you use our provisioning workflow to onboard 10,000 devices, you would be charged for 10,000 devices registered. You are also metered if you use our provisioning workflows for non-onboarding tasks, such as adding a set of new device attributes to devices already registered with AWS IoT Device Management, or rotating device certificates. If you rotate the device certificates for 5,000 registered devices, you will be charged for 5,000 things registered.

Fleet Indexing and Search

Fleet Indexing and Search maintains an index of your Registry and Device Shadow, which allows you to find devices based upon any combination of device attribute and state in near real-time. Fleet Indexing and Search is metered on the number of index updates, and the number of search queries executed.

Index Updates

(per 1 million updates)            

¥20.18

Search queries

(per 10,000 queries)

¥0.45

Search queries

(per 10,000 queries)

¥0.45

Index updates are metered in 1KB increments. For example, an index update of 1.5KB will be metered as two operations. Index updates occur when your Registry, Device Shadows, or device lifecycle events are updated. For example, if you update a device shadow of 2KB size, your index update will also be 2KB size. You will be charged for Fleet Indexing and Search only after you opt-in for the feature. Devices added or removed from your dynamic thing groups are metered as Registry operations.   

Device Jobs

Device Jobs let you send remote actions (e.g. a firmware update or a factory reset) to your devices. Device Jobs is metered on the number of remote actions sent to your devices.

If you create one device job that sends a firmware update to 100 devices, you will be metered for 100 remote actions.

Secure tunneling

Secure Tunneling allows you create a secure tunnel to an individual device that may be deployed behind a restricted firewall, without the need to modify the firewall configuration.

Secure Tunneling  
 

AWS China (Beijing) Region

Operated by SINNET

Tunnels Opened (per 1 tunnel opened) ¥45.59
Secure Tunneling  
 

AWS China (Ningxia) Region

Operated by NWCD

Tunnels Opened (per 1 tunnel opened) ¥45.59

Secure Tunneling is metered per tunnel opened. Once a tunnel is closed or deleted, that tunnel cannot be re-opened. Tunnels that are opened can temporarily disconnect if there are connection issues. You will not be charged for reconnecting to a tunnel that is already opened.

** Maximum tunnel duration: 12 hours

** Maximum tunnel throughput: 100 KBps (800kbps)

Pricing Examples for AWS IoT Device Management Components

Device Provisioning

Pricing Example

You have a fleet of 10,000 temperature sensors that you would like to manage with AWS IoT Device Management. You would like to onboard your devices by uploading device attributes, provisioning device certificates, and attaching policies for each of your devices. Your cost to provision 10,000 devices to AWS IoT Device Management would be calculated as follows:

  • Total Device Provisioning Charges = 10,000 devices * ¥0.90/1,000 things registered = ¥9.00
Fleet Indexing Updates

Pricing Example

You choose to use Fleet Indexing and Search so that you can easily find individual or groups of sensors based upon their device attributes or last reported state. If each of your 10,000 sensors executes 300 index updates a month of size 1.5KB each, your cost will be as follows:

  • Since your index update size exceeds 1KB, your updates are metered at the next KB multiple (2KB) as two index updates
  • Total Index Update Charges = 10,000 devices * 300 index updates * 2 index updates * ¥20.18 / 1,000,000 index updates = ¥121.08 per month
Fleet Indexing Queries

Pricing Example

If you query against your Fleet Index 500,000 times per month, your cost will be as follows:

  • Total Fleet Indexing Queries Charges = 500,000 queries * ¥0.45 / 10,000 queries = ¥22.50 per month
Device Jobs

Pricing Example

You have a fleet of 5,000 temperature sensors across 3 cities. You would like to execute a configuration change on each sensor with a different configuration setting for each city. If you schedule 3 jobs, each targeted at updating the configuration of all sensors in a single city, your cost will be as follows:

  • Total Device Jobs Charges = 5,000 remote actions * ¥0.028 per remote action = ¥140
You have a fleet of 600,000 smart bulb devices across China. You would like to execute a firmware upgrade on each smart bulb, all in the same calendar month. If you schedule 1 job to update the firmware of all smart bulbs, your cost will be as follows:
 
This monthly usage volume crosses two different volume tiers.
 
  • First 250,000 Remote Actions: 250,000 remote actions * ¥0.028 per remote action = ¥7,000
  • Over 250,000 Remote Actions: (remaining) 350,000 remote actions * ¥0.014 per remote action = ¥4,900
  • Total Device Jobs Charges = ¥7,000 + ¥4,900 = ¥11,900
Secure Tunneling

Pricing Example

You have a fleet of 10,000 device gateways installed with local proxy and tunneling agent. You have 10 gateways with issues this month, and your team creates 30 tunnels to troubleshoot these device issues. Your cost would be calculated as follows:

  • Total Secure Tunneling Charges = 30 tunnels created * ¥45.59 per tunnel created = ¥1,367.7
