The new Zerynth Device Manager offers the opportunity to connect and manage any device, and its data, to a single interface. The ZDM has all the knowledge of Zerynth under the dashboard and for this, it supports all the devices already supported by Zerynth OS and the related libraries, it also works well with CPU-based SBC, computers and software applications, thanks to the ZDM-Client Python library.

The ZDM also manages all that we can call the “life stages” of an IoT device, from connection to the system to the execution of functions for communication with the device to operations for updating or restoring the firmware or even running diagnostic queries.

In general, the first step of a device is to connect and provision to the network. In this phase, the device must establish a stable and secure communication link with the platform.

Configuration and management of the devices

Next, we have the configuration and management of the devices, here we establish the connections for data collection, we introduce basic configuration functions and we provide specific properties to a device or a group of them.

At this point, the device has three options in front of it that must be managed by the platform:

  • Providing maintenance
  • Providing updates
  • Optimizing its performance

It is remarkable that the life cycle of each IoT device differs from project to project since it largely depends on the specificity of a specific use case.

The importance of centralized management of all devices in a single interface is different:

  • Ease of overall vision of the IoT system.
  • Possibility of remote operations without the need to go to the site.
  • Unified management of a system that includes devices of different nature.
  • Agility in making maintenance decisions based on the state of the system received from queries or functions.

Beta testing

Zerynth Device Manager is a new product, and we would like to know what our users think about it. We would also like to know if there are features you would like to see in the future.

That is why the Device Manager is in the Beta version right now. Report any feedback you have in this Forum category.

We have also created extensive documentation for the Zerynth Device Manager. You can begin your journey by reading the Getting Started guide. You’ll learn the basic terminology, how to access the ZDM, and you’ll get to see some useful examples.
