Home License

Change country:

ThingSpeak home licenses are for personal use. Pricing is based on a count of messages to be processed and stored in a one-year period. ThingSpeak is available as a free service for small non-commercial home projects (<3 million messages/year or ~8200 messages/day) with limits on capacity and update rates as well as other features. For larger projects and for expanded limits, a home license is available. See the table and Pricing Calculator below for details. ThingSpeak is bought in units, where one unit allows 33 million messages to be processed and stored in a one-year period (~90,000 messages/day). See Licensing FAQ for more details.

Why Buy a Home License?

With a home license, you can carry out Maker projects, setup a home monitoring, and update ThingSpeak as fast as once per second. With MATLAB apps built into ThingSpeak, you can add custom analyses and visualizations to your data. You also have access to additional features such as private channel sharing and MQTT subscriptions.
