Intro: Send Data to AskSensors IoT Platform Using Web Browser
I have posted recently an instructable showing a step by step guide to connect an ESP8266 node MCU to AskSensors IoT Platform. I got some feedback from people more interested in the AskSensors platform, but they don't have a node MCU in hand. This is why I am writing this tutorial to show briefly how we can send data to AskSensors using web browser.
Step 1: Sign Up for AskSensors
If you have not created an AskSensors account yet, you can get one for free here.
Step 2: Create a Sensor to Send Data To
- Create new sensor and add a module to send data to.
- Copy down the Api Key In. We will use it in the next step.
Step 3: Form the URL
The URL format for one module:
- Change the 'apiKeyIn' by your Api Key In.
- Change the 'value1' by a value from your choice.
A complete example showing how to format the URL is shown in this getting started tutorial.
Step 4: Type the URL in Web Browser
Open your web browser and type the URL you have formed before. You should get '1' as response indicating the number of module updated successfully.
Step 5: Visualize Your Data in AskSensors
Show Graph for your module, all the data you are sending from your browser (value1) will be plotted in the graph.
Step 6: DONE!
That's all, quick and easy!
