Client Device Profiles are used to manage the authentication and data details of LoRaWAN client devices. Client devices must be pre-configured on the X-ON platform before they can wirelessly authenticate and send/receive data. Before viewing the data coming from a stream, a Client Device Profile must first be created. During registration, client devices will be configured under an Application, which will be configured to export data using the Stream API in a number of different formats. The Stream feature is the API that allows for receiving and sending device data with external web-based applications. Client devices can only be registered under a single application.

Details regarding a client device can be viewed from the Client Device's Profile page in the X-ON.

If changes to a client device need to be made, this can be done following way.
Figure 8: Editing Client Device from Client Device profile page
Figure 9: Updating Client Device Profile
To check if the device is up, we send a message from the Device Profile page under Send Downlink Section. Enter Port= 05 and Hex Message =01, and click on 'Send Message'. If the device is up, it should respond to the downlink message.
Haxiot provides different methods of transporting data to web applications. Streams provide a way to view and connect to data from client devices deployed in the field.
