Building an IoT App with InfluxDB, Python, Flask And Plotly

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. Learn how to build a functional IoT monitoring application built on InfluxDB.

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
