Adding devices with connectors

Adding devices with connectors

Connectors enables you to create a device with built-in behaviors that allow it to communicate with a Network very easily.

When creating devices at TagoIO, it is important to know that there are different ways to allow them to send & receive data through the connectors:

  1. It can be done directly using MQTT or HTTPS methods with our APIs, where one Device-token per device is necessary to grant access. 
  2. When using external services from providers (e.g LoRaWAN, Sigfox, or cellular) it is necessary to generate an Authorization per group/application.

That is why you need to select the right connector when creating your device at TagoIO: to take advantage of the integration already done with these services.

Connectors may have the following functions:

  • Interface with the middleware that connects with the provider when necessary;
  • Present logo, name, description, and tags;
  • Add payload parsers in the device (optional);
