Types of products

The Bolt Cloud can have three types of products. You can link your Bolt device to a product to be one of three types, i.e.
#Input device
In this type of product, the linked Bolt devices will act as an Input device, i.e. gather data from the connected sensors and send it to the Bolt Cloud at the set interval.

Select UART if you're connecting microcontrollers to the Bolt device

Output device

In this type of product, the linked Bolt devices will act as an Output device, i.e. control actuators connected to the Bolt device.

Input and Output device

This type of product enables your device to both send and receive data from the Bolt cloud. Use this type of product when you want the devices linked to the product to control any actuator while at the same time send data to the cloud.
Selecting the product as an Input device will allow your Bolt device to both send and receive data to the Cloud.
