IoT Configuration Management

Automate your Linux system with IoT configuration management. Use qbee’s built-in automations to handle users, passwords, firewall, NTP servers, package or software updates, ssh keys and much more. In addition, our advanced file distribution allows to distribute files, certificates and run scripts. A comprehensive group policy concept ensures that fleet devices obtain common or individual configurations, even with templating options. All configuration can be accessed through a REST API to connect third party systems.

Automation Features

UI based configuration

Use our intuitive UI to configure users, passwords, firewall, NTP servers and much more.

Increased security

Distribute or rotate ssh keys through UI or REST API. Deploy and update certificates or user passwords.

Audit & device logs

Our audit log records all changes. A device log shows configuration changes and the output from scripts or commands.

Distribute files & scripts

Distribute files and scripts. Invoke commands or scripts after file distribution to address complex configuration.

Connectivity watchdog

Use this watchdog to reboot the system in case of connectivity loss fixing USB modem problems.

Monitor processes

Monitor any process and ensure that it runs. qbee lets you restart any process that died and this is reported.

Pull based configuration

The qbee agent always enforces the last configuration state. Ideal for offline IoT devices or in case of patchy connectivity.

Group based configuration

Define individual configuration settings for different groups, subgroups or specific IoT devices.


All configuration can be handled through a REST API allowing access to third party systems and CI/CD integration.

qbee offers a pull based IoT configuration management for Linux devices. This allows to configure large fleets of IoT devices securely and consistently, even if connectivity might be patchy or devices are kept offline as spare devices.

In IoT for industrial automation it is important to ensure that all devices receive their specific configuration. Therefore we create an audit entry for each change and log the confirmed configuration action of the device as well. This gives detailed insights into the configuration and state of large fleets of devices.

Many standard Linux automation tasks can be handled through an intuitive UI. This allows to configure rules for the firewall, set NTP servers, install or update software packages, manage users and password, define ssh keys or monitor and restart processes. 

Customers using mobile data connections value our simple watchdog that triggers when connectivity is lost. qbee is all about taking the complexity out of IoT configuration management. However, more advanced system administrators can use file distribution and our post command option to achieve any specific configuration no matter how complex.

How to benefit from IoT configuration management?

Save Time

qbee gives you an immediate time to value and ensures that your development projects stray on track.

Save Costs

By using a SaaS solution that works out of the box you save both development costs and operating expenses over the lifecycle.

Increase Security

Using a proven device management platform improves security. Use IoT configuration management to harden edge devices.


It is difficult to find Linux system administrators. We help other team members with encoded knowledge.

Device Agnostic

qbee IoT configuration management works device and platform agnostic. Use any hardware or cloud backend platform.

Audit Logs

In IoT for industrial automation an audit trail about who has made configuration changes or accessed IoT devices is important.

Proven by customers worldwide in different industries.

What our clients say about us

Maciej Plebanski

Fast and secure

qbee made it very easy to get started with device management and now we are managing our complete fleet of robots. We are continuously improving and updating our Kogena platform and qbee helps us to do this in a fast and secure way.

CEO at Kogena

Hermann Berg

Easy to implement

We use in an MLOps project and appreciate both the simple device management part as well as the automated continued deployment of new and improved machine learning models.

Krzysztof Dec

Designed for usability

The implementation of the qbee platform made management of the shop floor devices simple and easy to follow. In the long term, this will enable us to hand over the system developed by our team to the IT department in a much more orderly manner.
