Enhancing Cumulocity IoT Capabilities: Device Control and Configuration Widgets

When designing dashboards in Cumulocity IoT, you are provided with a set of built-in widgets. However, these widgets may not cover all the unique requirements of certain PoCs or projects. This is usually when you might consider custom development to create your own widgets. But this approach can lead to increased costs and a longer time to market. In this article, we will highlight three Cumulocity IoT widgets, specifically designed for device control and configuration.

The Cumulocity IoT Device Control Plugin is a dynamic widget that allows you to display and control devices, assets, and groups of devices.

It supports real-time updates of the managed objects and offers a range of features such as the ability to select groups and individual devices, use images to represent the devices, select operations and define tooltips, and payload for each operation. The plugin also supports the filtering and display of at-risk devices and the toggling of flags on the managed object.
