Get Started With a Free Account

Getting started with my-devices.net is done in three easy steps and takes less than five minutes.

1. Sign Up

Sign up for a free account on our demo server. Don't forget to activate your account by following the link in the confirmation email sent to you and signing in the first time through that link.

2. Get The Code

Download one of the pre-built connector executables for your platform, or the C++ device SDK source code. As a first step, we recommend running a pre-built connector (WebTunnelAgent) on your desktop system.

3. Go!

After activating your account and signing in, go to your Account page by clicking the user icon or your email address in the upper right of the web browser window. Then create and download a configuration file for the connector executable (WebTunnelAgent) using the Generate Configuration File form. Put the configuration file, which must be named WebTunnelAgent.properties, in the same directory as the WebTunnelAgent executable. Then start the connector, either by double-clicking the WebTunnelAgent executable (on Windows) or starting it from a command shell. Next, go to the my-devices.net dashboard page (by clicking the home icon), where you should see your device ("Unnamed Device"). Clicking on the device name will bring up your device's web interface.

What's Next?

After you have successfully connected your device using the WebTunnelAgent running on your desktop system, you can install the WebTunnelAgent directly on your device. To do so, use one of our pre-built executables, or download the C++ device SDK source code and build it yourself.

You can also try out the my-devices.net REST API which allows you to integrate my-devices.net into your own applications.
