  • Hi is it possible for you to share more detail about what you are trying to build?

  • Hello friend,

    I think Speaker is more hardware related, it should be more dependent on your hardware board. On the other hand, Azure IoT SDK is software related. 

    Keep Fighting

  • It should be a speaker that can be configured as Azure IOT-Device and can be addressed through the Azure IOT hub.
    As well a bi-directional control of the device via the cloud, e.g. execution of an audio file on the device based on an Alarm Routine.

  • I guess you need to prototype with some device or microcontroller, some common choices are the Raspberry pi, MXChip, Arduino, etc. and you can find tutorials for some of these in our docs

    If none of those devices meets your needs, It would be a good idea to start with devices that can use the Azure IoT Hub SDK since it is the recommended way to connect to Azure IoT Hub.

    If for some constraint you can't use the SDK's then this StackOverflow thread will give you a good idea and has links to relevant documentation. Connect to Azure IoT Hub without using the SDK

    A newer option would be Azure IoT Plug and Play (Preview) it offers a new, open modeling language to connect IoT devices to the cloud seamlessly. With IoT Plug and Play, developers can connect IoT devices to the cloud, without having to write a single line of embedded code. IoT Plug and Play also enables device manufactures to build smarter IoT devices that just work with the cloud.

    You can find IoT Plug and Play enabled devices in our Azure IoT Device Catalog

    Plug and Play integrates with Azure IoT Central though, which is a higher level SaaS offering build on top of Azure IoT Hub.

    To trigger actions on your devices you have different options one of them is Invoking Direct Methods which is supported by both IoT Hub and IoT Central.

    For more details you might want to check Building IoT Solutions with Azure: a developer's guide.

    At the end you will need to research and evaluate what hardware fits best all your requirements for your use case scenario.
