Hans on IoT

ThingSpeak, MATLAB, and the Internet of Things

Getting Started with IoT using the Particle Electron and ThingSpeak 2

Posted by Hans Scharler,

Julien Vanier over at Hackster.io created a new tutorial showing you how to get started with the Internet of Things using the new Particle Electron and ThingSpeak.

Particle Electron Kit using ThingSpeak IoT

The Electron is a new 3G connected IoT device using cellular data and works anywhere you can get 3G in the United States. It is really awesome to plug-in a device and get it connected without the issues of Wi-Fi. This development kit also makes it possible to build battery-powered, mobile sensors. Good thing that ThingSpeak supports GPS data and offers sensor data analytics.

Check out Julien’s tutorial to go “From 0 to IoT in 15 Minutes” and other ThingSpeak projects on Hackster.io.

May i read multiple values (last 10 in a field) and store them in a photon....

There is an emulated EEPROM on the Photon, so yes you can hold multiple values. For specific details, check the Particle.io Photon documentation: https://docs.particle.io/reference/firmware/photon/#eeprom
