    There is Microsoft IOT central also available these days , where we can do everything what you showed us. So how is it different from IOT suite ?

  • User profile image

    @Aaadil: This is a legit question. Here is the difference:

    - IoT Central is a SaaS solution that is managed by Microsoft in terms of scaling, multi-tenancy,...). With IoT Central you can customize the type of devices and the dashboard as well as some rules, all of that form the IoT Central portal itself. You won't have to host the services on an Azure subscription (you actually don't need an Azure subscription to try IoT Central :)

    - The IoT Suite Remote Monitoring Preconfigured solution is a solution that deploys on your Azure Subscription and that you can then configure (down to the PaaS services and micro services) at will. Think of it as a template for building your IoT solution

    Going one way or another very much depends on the level of customization you need/want.

    Hope that clarifies things

    1) For adding real device also metadata is controlled by Device Simulation only?
    2) Is there C# sample for creating real device similar to C sample? is out of date wrt new remote monitoring solution.

    Hi: Metadata on a physical device is controlled by the client application, it is not related to the simulation service. 

    You can also learn about the device schema here, this applies to both physical and simulated devices:

    We have official samples available in Node and C for Windows and Linux (follow the left nav) that show how to connect a physical device here

    If you want to try using CSharp, you can customize the current sample for v2 using the insights from the official tutorial. Thanks!
