Custom Devices
Custom devices are a great way to configure and monitor devices that are not currently supported by CloudOS, or other special devices.
Adding custom devices will most probably require custom programming as well, using our API.

Add a new custom device

  1. 1.
    Hover over the space where you would like to add the new device, and click the ☰ to open the spaces actions menu. Alternatively, click on the space's name and select the devices tab.
  2. 2.
    Click on "Add device".
  1. 1.
    Select "Custom" for the vendor.
  2. 2.
    Select "Custom" for the model, and add an optional friendly name for the device
  3. 3.
    Click the"Add Device" button to confirm
Once the new device was added, the great thing about custom devices, is that they can store custom configurations! Click on the Config tab, and add any configuration for your device in JSON format. This configuration file will be accessible by the device's client code using the Get Config API call.

Build your own library of custom devices!

We work on improving the support for custom devices and build more advanced management capabilities so that you can manage your library of custom devices, and define their configuration schema. If you'd like to see this feature coming, please vote for it, and let us know which custom devices, and what features you would like to have.
