Connect the IG60-BL654 to your AWS Account

This chapter details how to get started with the Sentrius™ IG60-BL654 Gateway out of the box, including hardware setup, connecting to the cloud, and sending data. The IG60-BL654 with Greengrass comes with an AWS sandbox environment and is pre-configured to send data to AWS. But first, you'll need to configure a provisioning server and Greengrass group, create the Lambda functions to gather the data, provision the IG60-BL654 with our smartphone application, and then deploy and test the Lambda function.
