Use MATLAB ‘timetable’ to Merge ThingSpeak Data Channels 7

Posted by Hans Scharler,

We released a new version of MATLAB® and it’s available now for every ThingSpeak user. MATLAB R2016b includes many new features that make it easy to work with time-stamped tabular data, manipulate, compare, and store text data efficiently, and find, fill, and remove missing data.
With multiple sensors around my house or…

Schedule MATLAB Code with TimeControl

Posted by Hans Scharler,

Here at our headquarters we have a weather station collecting lots of weather data and sending it to ThingSpeak. We have made that data public for use in your own projects.

We write the temperature and humidity values from the weather station to a ThingSpeak channel. At some point in the project, we started… read more >>

Battery-powered Temperature Logger with ThingSpeak + Electric Imp

Posted by Hans Scharler,

[Marcus Olsson] of slickstreamer made a battery-powered temperature logger using ThingSpeak to store and visualize the data collected. He chose the Electric Imp Wi-Fi module for connectivity. The project is complete with a 3D printed case.

All of the source code to connect Electric Imp to ThingSpeak and the 3D printer design… read more >>

Store, Share, and Visualize Sensor Data using the BrickPi, Raspberry Pi, and ThingSpeak

Posted by Hans Scharler,

Dexter Industries launched a very successful Kickstarter campaign this past summer to build and release the BrickPi. The BrickPi turns the Raspberry Pi computer into a robotics and sensing platform for LEGO® MINDSTORMS®. Since the wrap up of the campaign, users have jumped on board making cool projects using the BrickPi including a step-by-step… read more >>

Solar-powered Temperature Logger with Electric Imp and ThingSpeak

Posted by Hans Scharler,

[Marcus Olsson] from Slickstreamer created a solar-powered temperature logger using the Electric Imp Wi-Fi module to push data up to ThingSpeak to store and visualize the data collected by his sensors. Marcus provides a parts list and a how-to on his blog. The temperature sensor, solar panel, and solar charger are all readily… read more >>

Indoor Environmental Quality Station #arduino #thingspeak #instructables

Posted by Hans Scharler,

[donmatito] created an Indoor Environmental Quality Station based on the Arduino platform and uses Bluetooth for connectivity to ThingSpeak cloud services. The great news is that Don completely documented the project at Instructables for others to learn from and add to. By using ThingSpeak he has made it easy to get access to the… read more >>

Solar Hot Water Temperature Monitoring with Arduino + ThingSpeak

Posted by Hans Scharler,

Here’s another “Klink Family Adventure”. The Klink’s created a solar water heater monitor using an Arduino connected to multiple waterproof DS18B20 temperature sensors. What’s great about this project is that it has the complete schematic and source code for interfacing multiple sensors to ThingSpeak at the same time. This is a common request… read more >>

Smart Home Project with ThingSpeak, Arduino, chipKIT, and Drupal 1

Posted by Hans Scharler,

Via Twitter, we caught wind of a project by a group of Rutgers University SCI ITI students. As their final project, the team built a working model of a smart home using sensors connected to ThingSpeak cloud services via Arduino and chipKit. They were able to embed their data and integrate with their Drupal-based website and show… read more >>
