RemoteIoT – Easy, Secure Remote Management of IoT Devices

IoT deployments may comprise millions of devices. Therefore, it is important to manage, monitor and track the connected set of devices. After the deployment, make sure all of your IoT devices will work properly. Aside from this, you need to make sure that no unauthorized access is given to any of them.

Typically, if you want to communicate to a computer on a local network, it is easy to find its IP address and then SSH into the unit. However, in order to access a computer from outside the local network, you usually need to jump a lot of laps, such as getting its public IP address and adjusting some settings on the its router. Changing the VPN/firewall configuration can be cumbersome if the device is behind a corporate firewall that does not allow ssh or VNC connections.

RemoteIoT provide a way to skip all the hassles. You can use the RemoteIoT’s secure IoT cloud platform to quickly connect to networked devices from anywhere, even if it’s behind a firewall. Just follow these 3 simple steps.

Step 1: Create a RemoteIoT account

Before connecting your device, open up RemoteIoT website in your browser and create a new account which should just take a minute and is completely free.

Step 2: Install the RemoteIoT service

Open the terminal of your device or access your device with ssh on the local network, then install the RemoteIoT service.

Step 3: Connect your device

Now, open the RemoteIoT portal in your browser and login to the dashboard of RemoteIoT. You should now see your device in the list of account devices.

Click “Connect Port” and select the SSH or VNC port. You will get a hostname and a port. Now copy the hostname and port to the ssh or vnc client and connect to the device as if it was on the local network.

You can also use the web console to connect devices directly in your browser. The web console is a standard terminal emulator for the X Window System. The service allows devices to be connected directly from the browser, avoids opening ports visible to outside and leaves a zero-attack surface.

With this service, you can organize your desired devices into different groups. Plus, the platform combines remote control functionalities with monitoring capabilities. you can get a complete overview of all your loT device in one single dashboard and remotely monitor CPU, memory and network usage, receive alerts based on monitored IoT Data and run batch jobs on devices.

In short, by taking these steps, you can ensure the functionality of your fleet. You can update the software after their deployment in the field. This way you can make sure that the units have the most recent software updates. You will have complete access to your all of them. For example, you can apply security patches and reset/reboot any unit.
