LwM2M device wakeup from C8y platform

An IoT gateway device that uses LwM2M to communicate with C8y can have the ability to enter a low-power state, in which it still has the ability to receive a "shoulder tap" via SMS or IP. It would be useful to have a mechanism in the C8y platform that could wake up such a device and establish an outbound connection to C8y, e.g. to receive an enqueued operation or send current telemetry.

    Hi Martin,

    thanks a lot for providing the idea. As mentioned in our call, it is unlikely that we will provide this as a generic functionality any time soon. However, you could think about writing your own extension to achieve this.

    E.g. you could build an extension that allows to trigger sending a wake-up SMS via the UI. Alternatively, an Analytics Builder rule, triggering the sending of an SMS after an operation of a certain type was created could be an option.
