We're excited to announce a new feature available in Kio Cloud Device Management: Add External Devices. This feature allows you to effortlessly incorporate third-party IoT devices into Kio Cloud, alongside Kontakt.io devices, for a comprehensive view of your deployed IoT device inventory. What's more, Kio Cloud can process data (scans) from third-party Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) IoT devices if they adhere to one of the supported Kontakt.io BLE packets.
Third-party devices are added through a simple import process using a CSV file. Once added, the devices are displayed and visible from Device Management. For our developer community, external imported devices are also available from our Device Management API.
Learn how to add and manage third-party devices from Device Management.
You can manage the following Device Management virtual attribute settings for third-party devices.
Tags: a method to categorize or group devices
Deployment Status: to indicate if a device is deployed, not deployed, or has reached its end of life
Notes: general information about a device
For your stationary infrastructure devices, they can be placed onto digital floor plans at their install locations from Kio Cloud Smart Location, providing an organized and visual representation of your deployed infrastructure devices.
