Running Grafana with DeviceHive

DeviceHive is an IoT platform which has plenty of different components. The Grafana plugin is one of them. This plugin can gather data from a DeviceHive server and display it with different dashboards using the very popular tool – Grafana. This article explains how to create a Grafana dashboard with DeviceHive. As an example, this uses the ESP8266 chip analog pin to visualise the voltage on it.


To display anything on a dashboard we need data. In terms of a DeviceHive server,

DataArt partners with Espressif to deliver complete IoT solutions

DataArt, the global technology consultancy that designs, develops and supports unique software solutions, announced today its partnership with Espressif Systems, a provider of IoT technology that builds the widely popular ESP8266 and ESP32 chips.

DataArt develops and commercially supports an open source IoT data platform DeviceHive that provides the infrastructure for building scalable and secure IoT solutions across a number of industries including automotive, utilities and smart environments.

As a result of the partnership DataArt developed a custom DeviceHive firmware for ESP8266 chips, that enables zero-configuration

New DeviceHive firmware for ESP8266 is out

It supports new features:

DeviceHive Firmware with Web Interface for ESP8266

DeviceHive ESP8266 Firmware

This article describes how to build devices based on ESP8266 Wi-Fi SoC using the DeviceHive firmware with the embedded web interface.

We just updated our firmware for ESP8266 to version 0.5 and this version has plenty of new features to use in local networks. If you are not aware, the DeviceHive firmware for ESP8266 connects your device to a cloud using a DeviceHive server. So the firmware allows controlling hardware connected to the chip’s pins via cloud services. With the latest version it’s possible to
