Registering a Device

Updated at: Jun 26, 2019 GMT+08:00

Overview

Register a device on the IoT platform and define device parameters. Then the device can connect to the IoT platform if authentication succeeds.

Procedure

  1. Choose Devices > Registration.
  2. Click the Individual Registration tab, and then click Register. In the dialog box displayed, set the parameters based on Table 1, and click Confirm.

    Table 1 Individual device registration parameters

    Parameter

    Configuration Rule

    Product

    Select a product.

    You can select a product only after it is defined on the Product Models page. If the product model has not been uploaded, upload or create it first.

    Node ID

    Specify the unique physical identifier of a device, such as its IMEI or MAC address. This parameter is carried during device access and used by the IoT platform to authenticate the device.

    • For a native MQTT device, the device ID (corresponding to the node ID) and secret generated after the registration are used for IoT platform connection.

    • For an NB-IoT device or a device integrated with the AgentLite SDK, the node ID and pre-secret entered during the registration are used for IoT platform connection.

    Pre-secret

    • For an NB-IoT device, the pre-secret is used to encrypt the transmission channel between it and the IoT platform.
    • For a device integrated with the AgentLite SDK, the pre-secret is used by the IoT platform to authenticate its access.
    • A native MQTT device does not require a pre-secret.

    Confirm Pre-secret

    Enter the pre-secret again.
