Sensor data can be sent to ThingSpeak™ from Arduino®, Raspberry Pi™, BeagleBone Black, and other hardware. For devices to communicate with ThingSpeak, they must support TCP/IP, HTTP or MQTT protocols. Your firewall must allow connection to the standard ports for these protocols. Explore additional information and examples.


Optional integration with learning management systems requires LTI 1.1 or LTI 1.3. MATLAB Grader is now LTI 1.1 and LTI 1.3 Certified. For more information, please refer to the MathWorks IMS Certification profile.
