Data acquisition is important to further do analysis. ThingSpeak allows us to send the data and display it in the graph. For the student, the best thing is, it also offer a free account for you to try. So in this tutorial, I will share with you how to send sensor’s data to ThingSpeak using Raspberry Pi. You may need to refer the following tutorial to get familiar with other IoT platforms.
- Displaying Sensor’s Data on Blynk App Using Raspberry Pi
- Getting Started With Favoriot IoT Platform Using Raspberry Pi
This video will show you how to send sensor’s data to ThingSpeak IoT platform using Raspberry Pi.
This is the list of items used in the video.
Below is the sample program for Thonny Python IDE used in the video. Before that please install the DHT sensor python library from Adafruit. Write the following command on the terminal.
git clone https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Python_DHT.git cd Adafruit_Python_DHT sudo python3 setup.py install
