When a device is linked for the first time, the instance of the device is created in the platform. This can be found in Devices. The corresponding device will have a unique hashID (e.g. dwgj6d), Identifier (e.g. IMEI number), and will be of device type (e.g. Controller for Amstel rectifier). Device tokens are the link between the connectivity and monitoring environments. Owners of connectivity environments can easily distribute said device tokens. These can then be placed in any monitoring environment, therefore allowing users to claim and install the device.
