AWS IoT Setup

You will also need to verify your identity.

Click theView thingbutton to see the details for your new WyzBee_TriLED thing on the right-hand side of the admin console.ClickConnect a device.

There may be a delay of up to 24 hours for the account activation to take effect. You can test the account status by clicking a related link like will show you the following screen if your account activation is still in progress:

A thing representsa device whose status or data is stored in the AWS IoT cloud (Refer to get an introduction to Amazon Web Services). The thing shadow service maintains a thing shadow for each device connected to AWS IoT. The shadow allows you to access and modify thing state data.

If your billing information is up to date, but the error message persists when trying to create a thing (later in this tutorial) you can try re-subscribing to AWS services with the following link:

-1)?false:true))); /* iFrame */ jQuery(a.fancybox-iframe,area.fancybox-iframe,li.fancybox-iframe a).each(function()jQuery(this).fancybox(jQuery.extend(,fb_opts,type:iframe,width:70%,height:90%,padding:0,titleShow:false,titlePosition:float,titleFromAlt:true,allowfullscreen:false))); jQuery(a.fancybox-close).on(click,function(e)e.preventDefault();jQuery.fancybox.close()); ; var easy_fancybox_auto=function()setTimeout(function()jQuery(fancybox-auto).trigger(click),1000); jQuery(easy_fancybox_handler);jQuery(document).on(post-load,easy_fancybox_handler); jQuery(easy_fancybox_auto);

You should see some C macros that contains the information necessary for the WyzBee board to connect to the AWS IoT servers.

If you dont see the wizard above, you can find it by clicking on theResources link in the top-right hand corner, and then clicking theCreate a resourcebutton shown below:

Click on Update shadow as shown below:

Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the AWS IoT console at On the Welcome page, chooseGet started with AWS IoT.

You should see a small box with your new thing in the bottom left-hand side of the screen:

Click the Confirm and start connecting button to see the below screen.

If you dont have a valid credit card associated with your account and if you havent verified your account, you will get the following error whenever you try to use AWS IoT via the AWS Console:

Before you can do anything, you will need to make sure that you have anAmazonaccount ( and it has billing enabled (even if you are using a free AWS plan!) and that your account is associated with a valid credit card.

Before you can work with AWS IoT you will need to Create a thing, which is done via the wizard shown below:

Open Update shadow tab on the AWS console and fill desired field with the following content:

If this is your first time using the AWS IoT console, you will see two buttons: Get Startedand Start interactive tutorial:

This will call thephoneor notify over email you associated with your account, and you will supply a PIN number, and you will then be able to select the AWS support plan. The basic plan (free) is sufficient to get started with WyzBee.

On theConnect a devicepage, selectEmbedded Coption, and then clickGenerate certificate and policy.

This section will guide you through the process of setting up a secure AWS IoT cloud  platform to communicate with WyzBee. Any communication with the AWS IoT requires the creation of a THINGs (A software-to-hardware mapping) followed by generation of the required certificates to enable the WyzBee board to communicate securely with the AWS IoT cloud.

The AWS IoT provides secure bi-directional communication between internet-connected things such as wireless sensors, embedded devices, smart appliances and others. Redpine Signalsplatform provides a modular sensor platform with the flexibility to add more sensor boards called THINGS.
