Does anybody know a good alternative to the XIVELY Free Data Service, because they wil stop the free service on January the 15th in 2018.
Since a few years I use it for my Solarplant- and Meteo-Data. It was very usefull, but now the will stop the free service. If I would like to continue, I will be forced to go to business service, but this is not for free.

My Data on Xively

Thanks for any help in this case.

I use "Thingspeak" and "EasyIOT" and have been satisfied with them both in short and long term usage (over 2 years with TS)

A lot will depend on exactly what you want to do with your data and the repetition times for send / receive.



It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.

Thank you. Thingspeak I had already a look and EasyIOT I didn't know.

What I would like to do is to display only some 20 Data sets from my solar-plant and from the weather station. dweet.io is an easy alternative, but only a few data will be stored for one day.

Xively was a good service, data was stored over years and easy accessible over a pretty good web-GUI.

What is the actual frequency of each data item ?

EG each sensor once per minute...less...more ?

The fastest TS allows one data set per 15 seconds and that data set can be quite a long one.
Or if each sensor is independent they could all send every 15 seconds but the data would be spread over multiple sets.

TS can also send data too so if you wanted to echo that data to lets say a server so you could do specialist functions with it then yes you can do that too.

Same with EasyIOT but the advantage of EasyIOT is that you can send instructions back to a sensor or something else to maybe turn on a relay or multiple devices etc.

Now I'am using dweet.io for publishing my data.

Every minute a datarecord will be sent with my solar-energy-, consumption- and weathe- data.It's ok for me like this, but XIVELY was much more better!
Thanks for all hints.
