  1. Plan between $5/month and $25/month

    It would be nice to have a plan between standard and pro that offered the more advanced data tools included in pro but without the external services like sms and embedding. I would love to be able to use real-time expressions and import log data via the web app but its a pretty large jump from $60 to $300 per year.

    • make it useful!

      There is a lot of noise in real scientific data. We usually filter them out, postmortem (which means the poor undergrad will do it). So, let her/him do it online.

      • Deleting individual data points inside a bucket

        This request comes from an issue of sometimes a multisensor in my Home Automation System sends out a crazy wild erroneous reading and it then totally throws of the charting/graph visual.

        Would be nice to be able to delete single data points or a group/chunk of data points inside of a bucket for times like this. Thanks!

          Real-time expressions provide the ability to filter out unwanted data points and data ranges in Tiles and Waves (http://support.initialstate.com/knowledgebase/articles/1093294-real-time-expressions-filter-out-unwanted-data).

          For accounts that do not have real-time expressions, you can set the min/max y-axis for line graphs and min/max range for gauge views to prevent an erroneous data point from dominating the view in Tiles. See http://support.initialstate.com/knowledgebase/articles/871260-tiles-set-line-view-min-and-or-max-y-axis for details.

        • Bucket specific data rentention policies

          To speed up historical analysis it would be great if it was possible to define a data retention policy on bucket level.

          E.g. I've chosen to send a number of events every 5 seconds to get real time feedback from my tiles. However, I really don't need more than perhaps one set of events per 2 minutes in order to perform historical analysis of the data. Hence, if I could define some policy that would keep all the data from the last hour and after that only per 2 minutes, digging into the history would be a lot faster and…

              • Multiple temperature sensors (DS18B20) graphed from one Pi

                I'm wanting to have multiple temperature sensors from one Pi sending temperature readings to one graph. This will create a graph with a number of lines showing the trend for the different sensors.

                • Getting average of data

                  I also requested for it. But if we may get the average value of a recorded data set it could be nice.
                  (for examle: we have 4 record 10 12 13 11, i need a gauge which gives the average of these vaules (10+12+13+11)/4 then we get a new record 12, our data set will become, 10 12 13 11 12, the average is (10+12+13+11+12)/5)

                  • Associate an expression with a stream and execute the expression for each new data value

                    I would like to be able to create an expression, that would be associated with a particular stream, and would be executed every time a new data value is posted to that stream.

                    This could be as simple as adding an offset to the value, or more complex like executing a formula.

                      • Allow for a stream to be defined as the result of an expression where the input could be other stream values.

                        I have a use case, where I am collecting to values, but what I would like to display is actually the result of something like:

                        virtual stream = (2*value1 + value2 ) / 3

                        • View Timestamp of cursor location when mousing over Tile

                          I would like the ability to see the timestamp of the cursor's location when mousing over a visualization in Tiles. This would allow me to see both the current value of the cursor for that stream as well as the timestamp associated with that event value.

                            • Set Bucket Load Timespan

                              It would be very useful to set a specific timespan of data to load when opening a bucket. This would prevent my larger, longer running buckets from continuing to load historical data that's not relevant most of the time for my visualization and analysis.

                                      You can override the timestamp when you submit data. This will allow you to submit data with the actual timestamp it was taken (e.g. in the past). You can see details of the API at http://support.initialstate.com/knowledgebase/articles/590091-how-to-stream-events-via-restful-api. The timestamp can be in either ISO8601 format or epoch.

                                      If you wanted to create a Python script that reads CSV data and streams it into a data bucket (so you can append this data bucket with live, real-time data), you can use a script like the one at https://github.com/InitialState/python_appender/blob/master/example_app/example_read_csv.py

                                      You can stream in data with older timestamps at anytime into a data bucket and it will automatically be ordered correctly.

                                      Log data delete.

                                        • Save Waves Configuration (order, amplification, etc)

                                          Save changes in Waves such as signal order, signal amplification, hidden signals, etc. so that on re-load, Waves is restored to its previous state.
