Every Thing

In this section you can find the virtual representations of all the assets you have defined for your smart connected ecosystem.


Things represent the entities in the smart connected ecosystem and store information about them. They are the virtual digital representations of the asset (IoT sensor, machine, device...).

Based on the Web of Things (WoT), Things can be defined through JSON formatting based on properties, actions, and events.
Describe the Thing's attributes (e.g., sensor values, configuration parameters, status, results of an analysis)
Determine how you can interact with your Thing (e.g., change a property, turn on/off)
Monitor the changes that can modify a Thing’s property (e.g., fire alarm, door open, data streams)

Categories permit you to group the entities (Things) of the smart connected ecosystem in a logical way and secure them from an access control perspective.
