This section provides guides for making devices claimable and claiming them.
Device claiming is a mechanism that transfers devices securely from one application to another.
Who is it for?
It is used to transfer ownership from a device maker to a device owner, or to a new device owner.
Typical use cases
- Purchasing a new device and registering it to the Console in an easy and secure way.
- Transferring ownership to a new device owner.
How does it work?
After pre-provisioning a device, device makers register it on The Things Industries Join Server or on their Cloud Hosted cluster, generate a QR code for claiming and stick it to the device. When purchasing a device, new device owners scan this QR code to claim it to their application. Learn how to claim a device.
