AWS IoT Events - How AWS Pricing Works

AWS IoT Events

AWS IoT Events helps companies continuously monitor their equipment and fleets of devices for failure or changes in operation and trigger alerts to respond when events occur. AWS IoT Events recognizes events across multiple sensors to identify operational issues, such as equipment slowdowns, and generates alerts such as notifying support teams of an issue. AWS IoT Events offers a managed complex event detection service on the AWS Cloud, accessible through the AWS IoT Events console, a browser-based GUI where you can define and manage your event detectors, or direct ingest application program interfaces (APIs), code that allows two applications to communicate with each other. Understanding equipment or a process based on telemetry from a single sensor is often not possible; a complex event detection service will combine multiple sources of telemetry to gain full insight into equipment and processes. You define conditional logic and states inside AWS IoT Events to evaluate incoming telemetry data to detect events in equipment or a process. When AWS IoT Events detects an event, it can trigger pre-defined actions in another AWS service, such as sending alerts through Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS).

AWS IoT Events pricing

With AWS IoT Events, you pay only for what you use with no minimum fees or mandatory service usage. When you create an event detector in AWS IoT Events, you apply conditional logic such as if-then-else statements to understand events, such as when a motor might be stuck. You are only charged for each message that is evaluated in AWS IoT Events.

See AWS IoT Events Pricing for pricing details.

The AWS Free Tier is available to you for 12 months starting on the date you create your AWS account. When your free usage expires or if your application use exceeds the free usage tiers, you simply pay the above rates. Your usage is calculated each month across all regions and is automatically applied to your bill. Note that free usage does not accumulate from one billing period to the next.
