Device Workflow


A Device Workflow consists of a series of instructions that identify, define, and process values (need definition) from a device message. It also can trigger events to be sent back to the device or to other systems.

A Device Workflow is typically made up of the following five parts:

  • Workflow Input

  • Input Commands

  • State Machines

  • Output Commands

  • Business Rules


The Cloud has received a message from the boat, Everglades. The message stated that the temperature in the livewell is 1100°. This temperature, or value, is sent to a Device Workflow called Livewell Temp. 1100° is identified as an integer and is processed to determine that this integer does not fall in the acceptable range. This creates a command to send a message to turn on the livewell cooling device.
