How it works

The Azure Certified Device program makes the IoT solution building process simpler and more efficient through our three key promises:

Discover high-quality products
that meet industry standards across a diversity of technical capabilities.

Select compatible IoT products
that are guaranteed to work seamlessly together on Azure.

Decrease time to deployment
by quickly selecting the right products for your business needs.

Our Certifications

Our different badges highlight top performing products across a series of technical compatibilities, promoting key customer focuses such as IoT Hub, IoT Edge, and security.

Azure Certified Device
Validates a device can connect with Azure IoT Hub and securely provision through the Device Provisioning Service (DPS). This IoT validation reflects a device's baseline functionality and interoperability.
IoT Plug and Play
Validates devices for Digital Twin Definition Language version 2 (DTDL) and related interactions based on your device model. It enables a seamless device-to-cloud integration experience and helps hardware partners build devices require custom code.
Edge Managed
Focuses on device management standards for Azure connected devices. Validates Edge Runtime compatibility for module deployment and management.
Edge Secured-core
Highlights IoT devices running a full operating system such as Linux or Windows 10 IoT. Validates that devices meet additional security requirements around device identity, secure boot, operating system hardening, device updates, data protection, and vulnerability disclosures.
Also Included:
Azure accessory devices
A selection of companion devices that work in tandem with other certified devices (including LoRaWAN sensors, NB-IoT products, etc.)
