IoT is a worthwhile investment for virtually any business, providing the automation, efficiency and performance that can differentiate your product or service. However, when deploying hundreds to thousands of IoT devices - sometimes across multiple countries - it can be difficult to manage effectively.
This quick guide will help you remotely manage and control a fleet of Raspberry Pi over the cloud easily! Just follow these 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Create a RemoteIoT account
Before connecting your device, open up RemoteIoT website in your browser and create a new account which should just take a minute and is completely free.
Setp 2: Install the RemoteIoT service
Open the terminal of your device or access your device with ssh on the local network and install the RemoteIoT service.
Setp 3: Connect your device
Now, open the RemoteIoT portal in your browser and login to the dashboard. You should now see your device in the list of account devices.
Click "Connect Port" and select the SSH or VNC port. You will get a hostname (like proxy8.remoteiot.com) and a port (like 10008). Now copy the hostname and port to the ssh or vnc client and connect to the device as if it was on the local network.
