Adding Devices to Clarity
This page provides general information about connecting edge devices to Clarity. We also provide specific instructions for common edge gateways like the Moxa UC-8100 and the HMS eWON.
You can access the Add Device flow by clicking the
+button next to
DEVICESin the sidebar:
Create a device name and a username and password that your device will use to authenticate itself to Clarity.
Each edge device that connects to Clarity has its own unique username and password. This reduces the risk that all of your devices will be compromised because one device password is leaked.
- JSON: Use this if you're not sure what to select. The JSON protocol type offers several options for decoding plain text data.
- SparkPlug: Use this if your edge device explicitly follows the SparkPlug/B MQTT standard.
