Create Sensor device, configure your communication channels and try out all the main functionalities to suit your needs.
A Sensor device is a communication channel with unique Api Keys where AskSensors collects and stores user's data.
Each Sensor device provides up to 6 Modules with shareable graphs. Users can send data stream to each module separately.
From your Sensor devices workspace, Create a new Sensor device by clicking on 'New Sensor'.
Fill your sensor name and description. Add up to 6 modules and click on 'Save'.
You will get the sensor informations: - Sensor Name (on the top): The sensor name you have entered. - Sensor ID: a unique sensor ID. - Author: the sensor author. - API Key In: a unique code you will need to write data to this sensor. - Created: date of creation - Updated: date of last update - Description: The Sensor description you have entered.
The Edit Sensor page provides users with several options: - 'Delete sensor' to delete the Sensor definitively - 'Clear sensor' to delete all data stream storied in this sensor. - 'Disable Sensor' to disable the sensor. no data will be received on this sensor. - 'Generate Api Key' to generate a new API KEY IN/OUT for your sensor device.
From your sensor device page, open the Modules window, it shows a set of features:
The image below shows an example of Line Graph.
Each AskSensors Graph allows four main functionalities that are available through the four icons on the righ top of the graph, as shown in the next figure.
The AskSensors users have the possibility to set and visualize the GPS positions of their sensors.
In addition to the Sensor Location used for fixed manual GPS position, AskSensors users can track their sensors in movement by using the map chart.
Thus, the map chart is designed to visualize dynamic GPS positions and to track to the movement of objects in real time over the HTTPS REST or MQTT publish/subscribe protocols.
