Create an Endpoint Device Configuration

EdgeIQ has the concept of an "attached device" or endpoint device. You can think of this as a device that is connected to your gateway. It might be a sensor, an actuator, or a piece of monitored equipment.

Endpoint devices do not need to run the EdgeIQ Edge software. They only need to connect to the gateway using a wide variety of physical and network protocols. Ingestors will be used later on to extract data from these endpoint devices via the gateway device.

Follow the same steps for creating a gateway device, but instead choose an endpoint device type.


When you get to step 4 of device creation, choose the gateway device that you previously created to define a gateway-endpoint relationship.


Now when you go to the Device page for your gateway device and select Endpoints from the top menu, you will find your new endpoint device listed. The endpoint has been attached to the gateway.
