A Device in Reekoh is a representation of a real-world sensor, beacon, or any hardware device. Your devices cannot use the Reekoh Platform without having been registered first. Devices in Reekoh consist of the following attributes:
The Device ID is a unique identifier that can be generated by the system or provided manually when a device is registered. As a device is identified by its device ID both inside the Reekoh platform and the data ingestion layer, the Device ID is required by the platform to identify incoming connections and data packets from devices.
The Device Name is a label or descriptive name given to the device or hardware to easily locate them in the Device Manager.
The Device Metadata is a set of JSON key or value pairs that are used to include additional details or information to your devices. The values specified here can be used by the Gateway or Stream plugins 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.
The Device Location is the latitude and longitude coordinates given to the device to determine its actual location.
