hello folks, here is my Thingspeak Project
I use this wireless 433MHz hardware and a PC program
A few questions :
can I remove the dots ? and only show the lines ?
can I : reset / clear / modify, only ONE field of a channel ?
why can I only have 8 fields in one channel ?
I need more curves, so I created more channels = more API codes = more work, feels like alot of unneeded problems.
Thanks for the post.
I'm a user experience specialist on the development team for ThingSpeak. We're in the processes of researching customer workflows and collecting new requirements for ThingSpeak.
Would you be interested in having a conversation over the phone so we could gather more information about your goals and process for building your Aquarium project?
you are more than welcome to phone me 🙂
I be honored to assist, I got a bunch of cool ideas, not just for me, but for all users.
I live in denmark, so better check local time here is between 0900 to 2300
my phone is not secret in anyway : +45 51 56 92 21
I just updated my page again 🙂
constantly adding features and sensors
Hi again Jeff, nice talking to you..
here a short summary of the mentionened features we discussed:
reset one field, (edit data in one field) as it is now reset all fields in a channel is the only option.
slow responce, sometimes curves apear empty and the circle turn for quite a while, reload page and it goes nice and fast again.
easy way to scale / calibrate / offset measurements, usefull for many type of sensors, just transfer the raw adc value,
and have thingspeak calculate the temperature in F and C for example, offset and slope is needed for this,
it is often a hazzle to do floating point in a tiny small microcontroller, it takes many cycles, and battery time to perform,
and also if you have many sensors with a little bit different readout they all needs to have different calibration factors.
Signal Filter : remove bad samples, like low pass fiter, or running avarage, maybe even let the user pick a few different methodes
or write a line of math to perform it.
Easy way to look into old data, like first week of last may, I want to see lake water level.
as it is now I can set number of days from today, or number of samples, I miss a start-stop date
I could offcourse export all data, and play with it externally.
easy way to merge several fields into one, it is possible now using mathlab, write code and such, it is not that easy.
only 8 fields in a channel, why not 80 ? if the user wants it ?
remove dots ? or dots size variable ?
curve smoothing variable ? the spline option allready do it a little bit,
but maybe spline-extreame and spline-lowpass could be cool extra features to add
I forgot to mention we also talked about EMAIL alarms,
I suggest an easy way to apply alarm levels, like min and/or max levels, and simply send a mail to the users OWN configured email adr.
Subject : Important message from ThingSpeak
Email : your channel name, field#, is over alarm level..
keep it simple 🙂 and most important : EASY to use and configure.
