Purchase and data export

Post by AskSensors-Support » Sat Nov 23, 2019 1:19 pm


New Inquiry received by email:

I would like to ask a question about AskSensor for purchase.

I am planning to do a lecture project as below:

It will be a home automation system. The system will have some sensors
such as temperature or humidity, and the user will see the sensor data
by using his computer. This works only if i can export csv data from
AskSensors instantaneously or periodically. Because the code will open
and scan the csv file periodically in order to change the
data(temperature etc) that shown to the user.

So my question is can i export csv data automatically or do i have to
press the "export data" button manually in every time in order to get
data as csv?

I look forward to hearing from you, thank you so much..

An easy way to do that is to perform HTTPS/MQTT data reads periodically. This gives you an automatic refresh of your sensors data without the need for exporting data.

More details are available here (HTTPS): https://asksensors.com/doc/connect-hardware-https.html
and here(MQTT: https://asksensors.com/doc/connect-hardware-mqtt.html
