To get you started, we’ve created a few video tutorials explaining the basics of some common tasks.
Creating a New Data Source
This tutorial shows you how to create a new data source on the Data Hub. Once this is done, you will be able to send data to the Hub and read data from it for your source.
Once you have created a new data source, you will undoubtedly want to start writing data to it. This tutorial shows how to do that, using the example of an Arduino temperature sensor.
Retrieving Data using PHP
This tutorial uses data read from the PHP script created in the previous tutorial to show temperature on a simple web page containing a guage.
Retrieving Data using Node-RED
Node-RED is a graphical, drag-and-drop interface for creating applications, and with the custom MK:Smart node, it’s easy to take and use data from the Data Hub. This tutorial shows you how, in combination with InfluxDB and Grafana.
Retrieving Data using Android Application
If you want to make your data available on the go, an Android application is an obvious choice. This tutorial shows how to get information from the Data Hub and display it in an Android application.
