Enable live voice and video streams on IoT devices

Agora’s IoT SDK provides high-reliability, low-latency, and cost-effective RTC services for global IoT devices.

Optimize RTC performance

Full-stack end-to-end solution designed for embedded systems on low-power IoT devices and companion apps—compatible with mainstream chipsets and operating systems.

Deploy globally

Enable region agnostic IoT solutions with Agora’s globally deployed network so you can sell and ship IoT devices anywhere in the world without worrying about usability.

Reduce costs

IoT SDK’s license-based billing plan is more cost-effective than billing by minutes. The price does not change based on device usage by the end user.


Highly integrated icon

Highly integrated

IoT SDK integrates both RTC services and signalling services so you can easily develop features like live streaming and remote control at the same time.

Lightweight design icon

Lightweight design

Designed for low-resource embedded systems, IoT SDK has a small package footprint as low as 400kb, so you don’t have to worry about system resource usage.

Low power icon

Low power consumption

Based on low hardware requirements (CPU, memory, etc.), IoT SDK works well with battery-powered devices like video doorbells.

Cross-Platform icon


IoT SDK is compatible with WebRTC, and developers can build apps across platforms like mobile, PC, web, and smart displays (e.g., Amazon Alexa), without plugins, while supporting a wide range of chipsets and operating systems.

Reliable, excellent performance even in poor network conditions 

With end-to-end algorithmic network optimization, IoT SDK provides smooth live streaming even in weak network environments. Say goodbye to frozen video streams.

Cross RTE icon

Interoperable with RTC full platform

IoT SDK is interoperable with Agora’s full real-time platform so you can easily build up the companion apps on iOS, Android, or any other platform.

Made for smart device developers.

Agora’s IoT SDK makes it easy to enable your IoT products with global real-time streaming.
