The Internet of Things is changing how people do business, thanks to improved event response capabilities, more efficient workflows, and cost savings. Problems like an overheated boiler, break-in at a storage facility, or delay in manufacturing or delivery are more visible across an organization. With AWS IoT Events, monitoring of these devices and events is easy.

 

As mentioned in a recent AWS blog, IoT Events uses detector models to represent different aspects of devices including states, sensors, and events. As shown in the example below, inputs are processed by a detector, which includes user-defined states for the device.

To specify transition events—the changes that occur to move a device from one state to another—event trigger logic can be detailed in the Transition Event section. Most importantly, an action can be added as well, such as sending a message or setting a variable or timer.
