The Ayla Platform provides a robust set of capabilities around virtualization, or the creation and management of the physical device's digital twin. This digital twin sets the data schema and enables mapping of properties to the Ayla database for data ingestion.
The core tenets of Ayla’s device virtualization include:
- Define device schema (property template) through configuration versus code.
- Template-driven iterative development model.
- Flexibility to alter device behavior through template changes and OTA update.
