3. Favoriot Setup ?

  • Device Developer IDSignup & login to Favoriot. If you are registered in Favoriot, you have a default device already created for you. Go to right platform on and see the device panel to see the devices that are present. Basically you need the device_developer_id that might be something like defaultDevice@myusername. But if you want, you can create a new device and use it in this example.
  • API KeyNow, go to your Favoriot Account Setting which is available on the top right corner in the dropdown and check your API key. You need this API key to complete this example. It’s a big alphanumeric token like:

4. Arduino Sketch ?

First you need to install Arduino MKR1000 platform on Arduino IDE, follow these instructions: click here. Install Adafruit DHT11 and WiFi101 library, then copy sketch below to your Arduino IDE. Make sure you have chosen the right option for Board and Port under Tools menu, then upload to your Arduino MKR1000 board.

5. Have Fun! ?

Now you can monitor your potentiometer and DHT11 sensor every five seconds on Favoriot data stream menu, and create data visualization on graph section. For more information about Favoriot, read its full documentation here.MKR1000_Favoriot_Graph

  String temp = String(dht.readTemperature());
  String humid = String(dht.readHumidity());
  String json = "{\"device_developer_id\":\""+yourDevice+"\",\"data\":{\"Potentio\":\""+pot+"\",\"Temperature\":\""+temp+"\",\"Humidity\":\""+humid+"\"}}";
  if (client.connect(server, 80)) {
    client.println("POST /v1/streams HTTP/1.1");
    client.println(F("apikey: your_API_key"));          // change it!
    client.println("Content-Type: application/json");
    client.println("cache-control: no-cache");
    client.print("Content-Length: ");
    int thisLength = json.length();
    client.println("Connection: close");
