Standard License

Change country:

ThingSpeak standard licenses are for commercial use. Pricing is based on the number of channels required and on a count of messages to be processed and stored in a one-year period. With the standard license, you can connect more sensors, and update your data as fast as once per second and get access to paid-only features. ThingSpeak capacity is bought in units, where one unit allows 33 million messages to be processed and stored in a one-year period (~REPLACE_PAID_MESSAGES_PER_DAY messages/day). One unit (standard license type) also provides the ability to create up to 250 channels on ThingSpeak. See the table and Pricing Calculator below and Licensing FAQ for more details.
Commercial users may sign up for a time-limited free evaluation. The free evaluation of the service has limits on the amount of data you can send to ThingSpeak and the update rate (no faster than once every 15 seconds) as well as other features.

Why Buy a Standard License?

With a standard license, you can quickly build IoT applications without setting up web servers and without having expertise in web technology. Using the MATLAB apps built into ThingSpeak, you can develop custom visualizations of your data and schedule predictive analytics to run on your sensor data as it is passed to ThingSpeak. You also have access to live technical support, private channel sharing and MQTT subscriptions.
