AWS IoT is AWS's dedicated IoT offering, used by developers and enterprises in IoT deployments as the entry point into AWS's Cloud Products. One can store, filter, transform, and act upon device and sensor data in the AWS Cloud.
The Helium AWS IoT Channel enables you to quickly send Helium device data to AWS IoT with little effort, while adhering to their schema and security best practices.
To get started, you'll need accounts for both Helium Dashboard and AWS IoT as well as an activated Helium Atom.
Setting up the Channel in Dashboard requires three pieces of information from AWS.
Access Key ID
Secret Access Key
heliumuser group permissions. Click Next: Review.
policyand select Create user to finish.
You should then see a confirmation with your Access Key ID and the Secret Access Key. We'll be using these to finish setting up the Channel in Dashboard.
Once deployed, the Helium AWS IoT Channel auto-generates the correct configuration information needed to use the MQTT Broker provided by AWS IoT. Specifically this enables you to automatically configure AWS IoT's MQTT broker to subscribe to and publish messages to your Atoms.
|AWS IoT MQTT Settings||Usage|
|Atom MQTT Subscription Topic||Use this to subscribe to messages from a given Atom on the AWS IoT MQTT broker.|
|Atom MQTT Publish Topic||Use this topic to send message to a given Atom on the AWS IoT MQTT broker.|
