Overall Satisfaction with AWS IoT Core

AWS IOT core is used to integrate smart locks with mobile for example door lock and case lock. The business requirement is to implement a solution, where- a user should be able to issue a command to the lock, to generate a temporary key for an approved accessor who wants to access it. that temp key is able to open the lock for a specified duration.
  • smart locks
  • MQTT based application integration
  • telemetric sensor communication
  • integration with other IOT devices
  • Sometimes we faced performance lags while temp key was issued but it was not accepted by locks
  • steps to Integrate telemetric sensor is complex and can be improved
  • keep device clock in sync
  • protecting MQTT connection
  • Documentation well written and easily available
  • overhead of infrastructure management is reduced
  • cost effective while keeping the security and data processing features of AWS IoT
  • Scalability and elasticity helps to handle sudden spikes and delivered a good customer experience
Trust with vendor AWS, as most of the infrastructure is on AWS hence it was easy to integrate. community support and documentation.

Do you think AWS IoT Core delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with AWS IoT Core's feature set?


Did AWS IoT Core live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of AWS IoT Core go as expected?


Would you buy AWS IoT Core again?


AWS IoT is best suited for all scenarios where MQTT connection needs to be established as it provides protections for subscribing to a topic or publishing messages with specific scope and context. AWS IoT core met our business expectations for the implementation smart lock mechanism.
Not sure about scenarios where it is less appropriate, As of now not face any such scenarios.
