New in the Console! The new device details view is your centralized command center for your Particle device. Use new debugging tools to rapidly iterate as you build your IoT solution. Or, quickly check in on a deployed device in the field.
Simply click on a device in your Console’s device list to access this view.
Some of the things you can now do on the device details view:
- See a filtered stream of events sent from and delivered to the device
- Call functions and check variables that have been defined in the device’s application firmware
- Update device details like its name, owner, firmware version, and more
Device details in the Console was launched as part of a major release to the Particle platform. In addition, Device Groups was made available to Enterprise product creators in private beta.
Device groups allow for more fine-grained control of an IoT fleet at large scales. Specifically, groups add additional flexibility to the firmware release process. As an example, you may want to send “bleeding-edge” firmware for early testing to a beta group of devices. Or, you may operate globally and require devices to behave differently depending on where in the world they are deployed.
Groups can also be used simply as an organizational tool, to help you tag and sort devices by location, lifecycle state, and more.
