Overview of this book

The Internet of Things market increased a lot in the past few years and IoT development and its adoption have showed an upward trend. Analysis and predictions say that Enterprise IoT platforms are the future of IoT. AWS IoT is currently leading the market with its wide range of device support SDKs and versatile management console. This book initially introduces you to the IoT platforms, and how it makes our IoT development easy. It then covers the complete AWS IoT Suite and how it can be used to develop secure communication between internet-connected things such as sensors, actuators, embedded devices, smart applications, and so on. The book also covers the various modules of AWS: AWS Greengrass, AWS device SDKs, AWS IoT Platform, AWS Button, AWS Management consoles, AWS-related CLI, and API references, all with practical use cases. Near the end, the book supplies security-related best practices to make bi-directional communication more secure. When you've finished this book, you'll be up-and-running with the AWS IoT Suite, and building IoT projects.

AWS IoT development for Arduino

Most IoT device developments use the Arduino board as the board target. Since Arduino shares schemes and designs, the makers make their own boards with custom Arduino models. Arduino models range from the basic Arduino board model to the advanced Arduino board model. The Arduino board is the best choice to introduce IoT development.

In this section, we will explore how to use Arduino Yún to interact with AWS IoT. For further information about Arduino Yún, I recommend that you read the official documentation at

To work with AWS IoT using Arduino Yún, we perform the following steps:

  1. Install the Arduino software
  2. Connect Arduino Yún to a network through Ethernet or a Wi-Fi module
  3. Configure Arduino Yún for AWS IoT SDK
  4. Build a program for Arduino Yún

Each step will be performed. Now, you can follow the steps in detail, as follows:

  1. Firstly, you should install the Arduino software for your OS platform. You can download it at https...
