A device is a logical container for physical measurements. It includes hardware and software that directly interacts with the world. Devices connect to a network to communicate with each other or to platform. Devices might be directly or indirectly (through a gateway) connected to the platform.
Sensors and Actuators are connected to the device (or integrated in its hardware). These sensors and actuators are called the Assets of the device and they serve as containers for the actual IoT data.

Sometimes devices stop working for one or another reason and you need to know what’s going on. Also, many devices (e.g. Arduino) memory is small enough to discourage an attempt to log errors on the device itself. For that reason AllThingsTalk allows you to know if system successfully receives or encounters a problem with incoming data.
System logs a debug message for devices which send binary data which the platform converts into AllThingsTalk format:
Go to your device page, and start debugging session by choosing DEBUG tab. That will start tracing log messages that your device sends to the Cloud.
By default, debug log shows information and error messages coming from your devices. If your debug log gets big and messy, you can filter out information messages by selecting Errors in debug view. You can also enter a debug message keywords to filter by search.
You can select Export to download
.txt document with message log from your current debug session.
When you delete a device, all its assets will be deleted and all rules connected to the device become invalid!
