Device in Reekoh is a representation of a real-world sensor, beacon or any hardware device. Devices in Reekoh have the following attributes:
The Device ID is a unique identifier that can either be generated by the system or provided manually whenever a device is registered.
Note: A device is identified by its Device ID both inside the platform and the data ingestion layer. This is required by the platform to identify incoming connections and data packets from devices.
The Device Name is a label or descriptive name that is given to the device or hardware to locate them easily in the Device Manager.
The Device Metadata is a set of JSON key or value pairs that can be used to include additional detail or information to your devices. The values you supplied here can be used by the gateway or stream plugins and can be used to provide better security, or can be appended to the incoming data from the device. It could also provide additional context for your devices and the incoming data which might relate to other software you use in your collection of tools.
