In this post, I will show you, how to monitor your IoT device in just 2 simple steps?

Step 1: Create a component.

Click on “Create Component” below
Click on “Create Component” below

Think of components like folders that contain other Fyipe resources and one of the resources it has is called “Monitors”.

They can help you to monitor security measures and manage logs of any of your resources.

They can also help you get SMS Alerts, Call Alerts, or Email Alerts during downtime.

So we click on “Create Component” and provide the name of our component, let’s say, “Test” and click on “Add Component”.

Enter “New Component” name
Enter “New Component” name

That’s it…we have successfully created a new component.

Step 2: Add an IP monitor to your component.

An IP monitor will basically test your IoT device or routers for availability, performance, and function. It will also notify you when it goes down.

So we provide the name of our IP Monitor, let’s say: “Cloudflare” and click on “Show more monitor types” and then “IP“.

Enter the IP Address
Enter the IP Address

You can click on “Advance Options” to provide any configuration settings for your new monitor.

Here you can set Monitor Criteria for Online and Down.

Enter Monitor Criteria here

These criteria state when your monitor is Up or Down.

Let’s click on “Add Monitor”.

Your IP Monitor is now successfully created and added to your component.

This is how it looks like when Fyipe is monitoring your IoT device.

Let me simulate what happens when your IoT device is down.
I’m creating this incident manually, but Fyipe will automatically create one for you.

Click on “Create new Incident“
Click on “Create new Incident

You will be alerted when an incident is created.

You can acknowledge an incident when someone is actively working to resolve it.

Acknowledge the incident
Acknowledge the incident

And you can resolve it, when you finish working on it.

So that’s how easily you monitor your IoT device on Fyipe in just 2 simple steps.
