Standard License

Change country:

ThingSpeak standard licenses are for commercial use. Pricing is based 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 (~90,000 messages/day). See the table and Pricing Calculator below and Licensing FAQ for more details.
Commercial users can sign-up for free to evaluate the service. The free service limits 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.
