Air Quality Monitor - How to upload data to ThingSpeak.
#1
Through the use of the ThingSpeak service you can easily have graphics of the WeatherDuino Air Quality Monitor data. They can be private or shared with everybody.

Making it work is very simple.

- If you don't already have an account at ThinkSpeak, get one.
- Create a channel.
- In the created channel, create 4 fields for data.
- Field 1 will be for PM2.5 data, field 2 for PM10 data, field 3 for AQ Index, field 4 for the CO2 data.
- In the user configurable settings of the WeatherDuino Pro2 PLUS software, enable the upload to ThingSpeak, and put there your WRITE key (suplied by ThingSpeak).
- And that's all. Your WeatherDuino Pro2 PLUS will start to send to ThingSpeak the Air Quality Monitor data, every 10 minutes.
- Go to your ThingSpeak account and configure how the graphs are plotted.

Here is an example of a ThingSpeak public channel, with the graphics of an Air Quality Monitor installed at my location:

Hello everyone,

I would be content if the future purchasers of a AQI communicates channel ID to me.
I wish to make a map of pollution.

Thank you and good weekend

Do the fields get named automatically by the API feed? I'm getting nothing showing in TS.

Hi uncle_bob, the fields are setup manually in Thingspeak similar to the examples below:

[Image: channelsetting.JPG]Setup all the channel fields and enable them here.


[Image: edit.JPG]Finer details of each field can be edited in each panel.

[Image: field.JPG] Setting up the graph axis, format and time scales.

This should set everything up to receive the data from your Rx unit once you have inserted the API key generated by your channel.

Hope this helps  Smile

Ok I've filled in all the fields but I'm not seeing any thing yet.

Hi qldbureau,

I think the "results" for 2 days data should be 288 instead of 480.
You feed 6 results per hour (one each 10 minutes)
6 x 24 x 2 = 288

Hi uncle_bob
Check if the upload to ThingSpeak is enabled in user configurable settings.

Thanks for spotting that Werk. I corrected the private view but somehow missed here.

Hi Werk, yes it is enabled.
WU isn't though (if that has some bearing).
