  • It provides a good GUI interface for your IoT applications. so the data can be read in a more meaningful manner.
  • It helps us to test the functioning of devices and you can create custom applications that communicate with your IoT devices and send data to cloud server.
  • To develop such a type of application that reads your device data is a tedious work but AWS IoT makes it easy as it provides a custom tool that easily establishes a connection between your IoT devices and Cloud server.
  • Performance needs to increase bit more.
  • Sometime the server hangs and hence is not able to send data to cloud services.
  • Need to extend it to other devices like Android based devices.
