Azure IoT Central

Connect, manage, and operate fleets of devices at scale with Azure IoT Central - an application platform as a Service (aPaaS) that gives you ready-to-use UI (User Interface) and API (Application Programming Interface) surface to quickly develop IoT Solutions.


What is IoT Central?

IoT Central is your ready-made IoT Solutions development platform, which helps you go from proof of concepts to proof of value. With the power of Azure and PaaS services in your developers' hands, you can go from zero to live within five minutes. Get started with Microsoft's Azure Certified Devices that serve you the telemetry you need to build, model, and manage your custom IoT devices.

Deploy enterprise-grade IoT solutions to reduce the burden and cost of developing, managing, and maintaining IoT solutions.

Use device templates to connect every device to IoT Central. Create device models using Visual Studio code and publish the model to a repository and use it to build a simple device template for you to add any cloud properties, customizations, and more.

Ease out the day-to-day interactions of your employees with the apps by configuring and customizing their user interfaces (UI) and help them discover insights to resolve issues faster.

Monitor and troubleshoot your devices using IoT Central to manage the existing devices, or provision new IoT devices. Redefine the custom rules and actions that work on data streaming to remediate device issues.

Build custom IoT solutions and integrations with REST APIs to create goal-specific user roles that interact with an IoT Central application. And empower your administrator to better manage user roles and permissions within the built app.
