Dashboard for ThingSpeak data
October 22, 2018
The weather station gets outside weather data as well as temperature and humidity data from the first-floor thermostat. Every ten minutes, it logs that data to a channel on ThingSpeak. The Arduino-based temperature and humidity sensor in the basement does the same thing for the data that it captures. Note: these two devices are not synchronized in any way. They know nothing about each other.
Going onto my ThingSpeak account to see a line graph of the temperature on a specific floor is interesting. However, I wanted to be able to see the latest snapshot of all the data that I have collected. Time to start putting together a dashboard. I used Google Gauges to create a more graphically oriented dashboard.
Here is a snapshot of what the dashboard looks like:
I’ll skip the actual code as most of it is customizing the look of the gauges. I use getJSON calls to get each of the data values from my ThingSpeak channels.
