We are growing so quickly and adding a ton of new functionality that we don’t want to lose the User Experience (UX). We want you to be able to build Internet of Things projects in 5 minutes and gain insights, share data, and explore its potential without our software getting in the way.
To help us understand what you are thinking, we created a card sort activity. If you click the link, you can sort out our current functionality into categories. We will use the results over many ThingSpeak users to help us organize and improve our website and UX.
Thanks for your feedback!
What does an adorable hamster need? Internet of Things, but of course. Using ThingSpeak, ESP8266 Wi-Fi, and Arduino, Ángel from San Sebastián built a monitoring system for his hamster which is dubbed “RunnerHam“.
RunnerHam Tweets his distance and time when he takes a run on his wheel, “I’m done! 57.62m at 0.61m/s”. You can also check out his ThingSpeak Channel where he records lots of data about his day.
Ángel also released an Instructables explaining his “pet project” so you can make your own and make your own enhancements. Just imagine what you can do with some sensors, connectivity, and ThingSpeak Web Services!
Do you maintain Windows Servers? If so, you might want to track server resources. ThingSpeak accepts data from anything and fits perfectly for server monitoring, visualization, and analysis. [NotHans] released a PowerShell Script to report Windows Server disk free space to ThingSpeak. Once in ThingSpeak, use a ThingSpeak to visualize server resources and send alerts to low disk space with ThingSpeak React. Use this PowerShell Script as a starter script to send data to ThingSpeak from Windows-based systems. Check out the open source script on GitHub.
