In this tutorial, you will learn how to connect the Yanzi Lifecycle cloud (YLC) to akenza. To connect the YLC to akenza, we will use an HTTP WebSocket as a device connector on the Data Flow on akenza.
As a first step, you need to set up your YLC account and integrate your Yanzi Gateway and its connected devices.
Yanzi Lifecycle is the tool for managing your Yanzi infrastructure and sensors throughout the entire lifecycle - from planning to installation, changes, and monitoring of existing systems as well as redeployments.
Once your account is created, proceed with the connection of your gateway by selecting + Gateway.
Project overview on YLC
Proceed with all required steps, to successfully connect your Yanzi Gateway to the YLC.

Proceed further with the installation of Yanzi devices. Installing your Yanzi infrastructure is done in two steps, physically connecting your hardware and registering it in the YLC.
Upload a floor map to place your devices.
In the menu Physical devices - List, all your connected devices are displayed with their ID and respective measured values.
Now as your YLC is up and running, you are ready to connect your account to akenza.
Go to Data Flow in the left-side menu and select Create Data Flow. Select Yanzi as a device connector. The following information is required:
- YLC account credentials
- Location ID
- See Settings-General in your YLC account

Your YLC account is now connected to the Data Flow on akenza. Proceed with the creation of your Yanzi device on akenza.
Go to Asset Inventory and select Create Device. Give a name to your device and optionally a description, tag, and a custom field. Select your newly created Data Flow. Insert the device ID which can be found on your YLC account within the Hardware inventory.
Once successful created, your Yanzi device will be displayed on the Asset Inventory Overview. Incoming data can be viewed on the Device Detail Page by selecting your Yanzi device on the Asset Inventory Overview.
