Device Groups

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

Device groups enable batch mode device management. Batch device management enables efficient command execution against a group of similar devices through MQTT and LWM2M. 

  • MQTT commands send raw payload, which can be bytes or strings to the device MQTT request (req) topic.
  • LWM2M commands perform LWM2M end-point proxy calls via the Workload Orchestrator device management module
