Things are devices that you need to control. They publish messages to the broker via theMQTT protocol(note that HTTP is also supported). The Message Broker can then deliver the message to subscribers, IoT Applications, or other Things. Security and Identity is a first-class citizen in this platform and needs to be taken care from the ground up. The Rules Engine is pretty interesting and it can not just transform the data but route the message back to not just subscribers/applications but also invoke the rest of the services available in the AWS Ecosystem like DynamoDB, Lambda functions and more.

The Thing Shadow is a very interesting concept and is key to disconnected Things. Given the conditions that Things would operate it, it is very likely that due to bad connectivity, they are not always in a connected state. This means that when a message is likely to be pushed to the Thing, it is not available. In comes the concept of Thing Shadow to address it. A Thing Shadow is a copy of your Thing state in the Cloud and contains the last known state and a desired state. When a Thing is connected again, the state is synced with the Thing Shadow. Applications too can control the state of a Thing by simply using the REST API to control the Thing Shadow state. Check outHow It Workssection for more details on the core building blocks of the AWS IoT Platform.
