This recipe works best by using one device to control the simulated sensor and another device to view the data visualization.
- To view the simulated sensor, go to http://quickstart.internetofthings.ibmcloud.com/iotsensor. The simulator connects automatically and starts publishing data. The simulator must remain connected to visualize the data.
- Use the simulator buttons to change the simulated sensor readings. Data is published periodically.
There are three simulated sensors:
- Object temperature.
Visualizing your data
- Note the device ID of the simulated device (it's a mix of numbers and letters displayed in the top right corner).
- Enter the device ID into the box here.
