Send sensor data to the cloud.
There are sensors all around—in our homes, smart phones, automobiles, city infrastructure, and industrial equipment. Sensors detect and measure information on all sorts of things like temperature, humidity, and pressure. And they communicate that data in some form, such as a numerical value or electrical signal.
Why would you want to collect data in ThingSpeak?
Sensors, or things, sense data and typically act locally. ThingSpeak enables sensors, instruments, and websites to send data to the cloud to store in a channel. Once data is in a ThingSpeak channel, you can analyze and visualize it, calculate new data, or interact with social media, web services, and other devices.
