ThingSpeak IoT platform provides apps that let you analyze and visualize your data in MATLAB, and then act on the data.
The Sensor data sent to ThingSpeak from Arduino, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black, and other hardware.
A Complete tutorial Series on Introduction of NodeMCU/ESP8266 here..
In this tutorial, LM35 temperature sensor can be used with esp8266 or Nodemcu and program from Arduino IDE, the lm35 has used to send data to thingspeak and it was really productive there is no sudden spike in temperature change, it was gradual and results are quite good.”
Create a new project on ThingSpeak-
Collect data in a ThingSpeak channel from a device, from another channel, or from the web. Click New Channel to create a new ThingSpeak channel.
After that you view new window on your PC screen,in that click on Channel Setting & read all the channal setting instruction.
