ThingSpeak for IoT Projects

Data collection in the cloud with advanced data analysis using MATLAB

ThingSpeak™ is an IoT analytics service that allows you to aggregate, visualize, and analyze live data streams in the cloud. ThingSpeak provides instant visualizations of data posted by your devices to ThingSpeak. With the ability to execute MATLAB® code in ThingSpeak, you can perform online analysis and process data as it comes in. ThingSpeak is often used for prototyping and proof-of-concept IoT systems that require analytics. 

You can send data from any internet-connected device directly to ThingSpeak using a Rest API or MQTT. In addition, cloud-to-cloud integrations with The Things Network, Senet, the Libelium Meshlium gateway, and enable sensor data to reach ThingSpeak over LoRaWAN® and 4G/3G cellular connections.

With ThingSpeak, you can store and analyze data in the cloud without configuring web servers, and you can create sophisticated event-based email alerts that trigger based on data coming in from your connected devices.


“With ThingSpeak we were able to quickly develop and improve upon our designs because the platform makes iterations easy, is stable, and scales well. Other platforms are available for collecting and analyzing data, but none met our needs as fully and immediately as MATLAB and ThingSpeak.”
