Device is the link between your external things and the data in your account. You need to create a device in order to allow anything to send or receive data from your buckets. The communication between the external devices and Tago is done through HTTP methods using the JSON format (HTTP in fact). 

Detailed information about how to interface with the devices can be found in the API documentation.

Adding Devices

See this documentation does add devices using one of our Connectors

To follow a tutorial on how to add a device go to the Getting Started article.

Managing Devices

By clicking on any device under your list of devices you can find several sections with detailed information about it.

Under the tab "More", you can see the Device ID and other information, and delete your device. 


This option will define how TagoIO will respond to any request from the device. If the switch is ‘NO’, the system will deny access to any command coming from the device. 


With this option it is possible to hide a specific device from the Device list. It may be helpful when creating a Dashboard and using the Input Form Widget that has a field type called ‘Device’. When configured with a device, the form will show the list of all visible devices connected to that bucket.
