# Configurations

You can't find any IoT device which doesn't need to configure for operations. There are many cases you should configure your device to work. The simplest example is WiFi credentials or IP configuration of the network, sometimes you need to set up IoT server address, etc. OTAdrive configuration service provides a simple json object as configuration. You don't have to recompile and update your firmware to just change a parameter for your customer. For example in our LED blinker project, we shouldn't recompile our firmware just to change the blinking speed. Blinking speed could be a configurable parameter and we can just fetch new parameters from OTAdrive.
