Create a device
After registering SIMs, you need to create a virtual representation of the device associated with the SIM.
Add a device in the emnify Portal
- Log in to your emnify account.
- Navigate to Connected Devices and click Add device.
- Name your device and assign a service policy and coverage policy. Optionally, add tags, indicate the IP address, lock the IMEI, or assign a SIM.
Assigning a SIM to the device is a necessary step for getting your device online.
- Review your device details, then click Create device.
Once created, you're prompted to configure the APN. Skip this step if you didn't assign a SIM to your device.
Create devices with the emnify REST API
You can create one device or multiple devices in bulk using the emnify REST API. For step-by-step instructions, see Create Endpoints in the emnify System Documentation.
Insert the assigned SIM
Skip this step if your device already has an embedded SIM.
