New Feature Releases:

Feb 7, 2017

$10 Personal Tier with Real-Time Expressions

The newly launched $10/mo Personal tier contains one of the most powerful features previously only available in the Professional and Enterprise tiers - real-time expressions. You can now create your own real-time data transformations to filter out unwanted data, convert units, compute energy costs, mathematically combine data streams, smooth out noisy line graphs, and so much more. Read more about each of our service tiers here.

Map Operator

The map operator, :, has been added to the list of supported operators available in real-time expressions. This operator allows you to map specific values or value ranges in a data stream to constants or even values from another data stream. For example, you can map and display an emoji such as 🔥 to any value over 80 in a temperature stream. Check out a detailed example of how to use the map operator here.

Smarter Tiles Auto-Layout

Using the "Always Fit Tiles" auto-layout option just got a lot smarter. Tiles are automatically sized based on the tile type to better fit the width of your dashboard. For example, line graphs are now automatically drawn as wide rectangles instead of small squares for a more optimal data view.

Local Caching for Fast Loads

Datasets are now cached locally in Chrome and Firefox for blazing fast load times. Only bucket views that do not use the "Show Events Since" option are cached. Logging out of your account will automatically clear all local caches.

Compute Energy Costs in Real-Time

A new Summary (statistics) tile type is now available - Total. This tile type gives you the ability to add up the total of each value in a data stream for a selected time range. There is also an option to add up each value multiplied by the time spent as each value. This option gives you a super easy way to convert Watts (W) to Watt-Hours (Wh). You can use real-time expressions to complete the conversion of Watts to energy costs. Check out a detailed example here

Quickly Search Inside a Data Stream

You can now search for specific values, partial matches, and ranges inside of a data stream in Waves using real-time expressions. Select a data stream and use the shortcut, $, to reference that selection in your expression instead of typing out the full name. You can use the new operator, ~, to search for a partial match. For example, you can search for all occurrences of the word "error" in a signal by first highlighting that signal and using the expression, =$~"error". You can find more examples here

More Math Options

Sine, cosine, tangent, and Pi have been added to the math package in real-time expressions. A list of all operators can be found here

Smart Gridlines in Waves and Lines

The gridlines in both Waves and Lines are now drawn on "neat" axis intervals. The number and location of gridlines are dynamic based on the size of your window and the data contained in the current zoom level.

Mouse Wheel Pan/Zoom in Waves and Lines

You can now use the mouse wheel to navigate through data in both Waves and Lines. You can pan through your data using just the mouse wheel. While holding down the CTRL key, the mouse wheel will zoom in/out of data.

You can duplicate a data bucket view by clicking the "settings" link underneath the bucket name on the bucket shelf then clicking on the "Duplicate" button. This will create a new view of that same data bucket named "Copy of [bucket name]". This allows you to create a different Tiles layout, a different Waves layout, load a different timespan, etc. Read more ...

Timeline Zoom/Pan

You can now zoom in and out of the timeline and pan left and right to give you fine control of a time range selection. You can use your mouse wheel, the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ keys, or a new right-click dropdown menu to zoom in and out of the timeline. Once you are zoomed in, you can use the → and ← arrow keys to pan the timeline right and left.

Line Graph Hero Tile

Grid markers now appear for any Line Graph tile resized larger than the default size tile. The grid lines on hero-sized tiles makes reading your data values at a glance even easier.

Notice the little arrows at the very top and bottom of the Line Graphs above? The minimum and maximum values of a signal are now marked on Line Graphs with same-colored arrows. Hovering over the arrow will show you the value. Read more ...

Bar and Pie Chart Comparison Options

A new comparison option is available on bar and pie chart tile configuration. You can now choose between "total time spent as value" and "count of events by value" to drive bar and pie charts. You can see the difference between these two options in the image above.

June 18, 2016

Responsive Gauges

You can now choose from one of three types of gauge views by simply resizing the tile. A square or near-square tile dimension will show a half-circle gauge. A short, wide rectangle dimension will show a single, horizontal bar gauge. A tall, narrow dimension will show a vertical bar gauge. Read more ...

Waves Saves

Waves and Lines now auto-save their current state. If you re-order / delete / amplify signals, those changes will be saved for the next time you log in. No longer do you have to be frustrated when you get your workspace just right only to lose that work when you logout.

May 25, 2016

Tiny Tiles

You can now resize tiles to 1/4 the original tile size! This just so happens to provide the ideal dimensions for emojis, smaller pie charts, and even short-‘n-wide line graphs. The size of the tile isn’t the only thing that changes, either. Depending on the tile type, the view is optimized for a smaller size – the last value above the graph might be removed or the font size reduced. Read more ...

Enhanced Hover

We’ve added more information to the display you can see when you hover over a point/bar/segment in one of your tiles. The biggest change of note is that the exact date and time now show as you hover over a line graph. You can also see specific histogram bin data and how long a signal’s been a certain value in a pie chart or bar graph. Read more ...
