Building an IoT App with InfluxDB, Python and Flask
Date: Thursday, January 13th at 11am PT / 2pm ET
The Internet of Things (IoT) is increasingly driven by sensor data, with devices taking measured actions based on everything from wind speed and direction, vital body functions, illumination intensity, and temperature.
In this session we will showcase how to build a fully functional sample IoT monitoring application built on InfluxDB. With functions such as visualization and creating alerts from uploaded sensor data in a custom user experience.
In this session you will learn:
- How to bootstrap your development environment to get developing on InfluxDB
- How to use the InfluxDB Python Client library to receive data from your users, and write that data to InfluxDB
- How to query InfluxDB so that your app can visualize the data for your users
- How to install a downsampling task in InfluxDB that will both save you money in storage costs as well as optimize the user experience for your users
- How to use InfluxDB’s powerful “Checks and Notifications” system to help you provide custom alerting to your users
