    Discover remote units

    Hi there,

    I'm pretty new to Zabbix so please bare with me if this is a really simple question

    We have a lot of IoT devices in a lot of different locations around the world and would like to monitor if certain services are running and some basic checks about the hardware. However, we would like to prevent to have to enter each device separately in Zabbix. Also, our Zabbix server will not be able to send requests to those devices in most cases so we want to use an active Zabbix agent.

    Would it be possible to equip all our devices with Zabbix Agent (we can definitely do that) and have the Zabbix Agent preconfigured to contact our Zabbix server? I'd like to have them appear under the 'Discovered hosts' section so we can simply link a template to it and have it added to the system.

    So, in short, can our devices use their installed Zabbix agent to contact our Zabbix server and thus be 'discovered' for easy configuration and then start pushing their data? Or can we do so using the API?

    Thanks ahead!
