SensorCloud is a unique sensor data storage, visualization and remote management platform that leverages powerful Cloud computing technologies to provide excellent data scalability, rapid visualization, and user programmable analysis. SensorCloud's core features include FastGraph, MathEngine®, LiveConnect, and the OpenData API.
For more specific details on how to use SensorCloud, check out our Getting Started page.
SensorCloud allows you to easily create dashboards to visualize all of your data. Dashboards can be as simple as a single Timeseries Graph widget, or advanced with Radial Gauges, Text Charts, Linear Gauges, FFTs, Statistics, etc.
A single Dashboard can display data from all of your devices. Create multiple dashboards and easily switch between them to visualize different datasets.
After adding a widget and selecting the channel(s) for it, you can configure the widget with a variety of settings. Set the title, show/hide legends, add color ranges, etc.
Since SensorCloud allows you to upload as much data as you want, and LORD's sensors can sample at very high rates, it was important to be able to quickly visualize massive amounts of data. We struggled to find any application that could handle even a few gigabytes of data, so we started from the ground up with our own unique algorithm.
FastGraph allows you to view years of high-speed data instantly, and zoom in to points of interest, giving you more power and flexibility in your data analysis than ever before.
MathEngine is a set of tools to help analyze your data. MathEngine functions are available directly from the Timeseries Graph widget. Simply zoom in to the data of interest, press the MathEngine button, and choose the function that you would like to run.
MathEngine Notebooks are available as an add-on for SensorCloud. These allow you to take your data analysis even further while still keeping all your data in SensorCloud. Use Python with the popular Jupyter Notebooks, to pull in your data, run custom functionality, integrate with third-party APIs, and even create new SensorCloud channels to view in the standard Dashboard interface.
SDK and Open Data API
SensorCloud provides a RESTful API that allows any device or application to upload data to SensorCloud. The API is implemented as a web service using standard HTTP request commands.
An SDK is also provided which contains libraries and example code for Python, Java, and C#.
SensorCloud LabVIEW VIs are provided as well, which make it simple to communicate with SensorCloud from within your own LabVIEW applications. View the LabVIEW documentation for more information.

The SensorCloud Alerts feature allows you to create custom email and SMS text message alerts for monitoring data exceedances and events of interest.
Flexible and powerful syntax gives you the ability to customize the alert messages as you wish, adding embeddable event data parameters. Alerts can be triggered on sensor channel exceedances, as well as inactivity. Multiple alert recipients can be added to coordinate a team event response.
LORD Sensing's WSDA®-2000 gateway collects sensor data and pushes it directly to SensorCloud, for seamless long-term monitoring. LiveConnect is a service included with SensorCloud that allows you to interact with the WSDA-2000 and corresponding sensors from anywhere in the world. Configure sensor network settings, stop/start sampling, and view real-time data - all remotely.
LiveConnect works by establishing a web socket connection between your WSDA-2000 and your local PC, regardless of where your WSDA is located. Once your WSDA-2000 is linked to your SensorCloud account, simply open LORD Sensing's SensorConnect software, log in to your SensorCloud account, select your WSDA-2000 in the device list, and press the Create LiveConnect Session button.
All data and transactions occur over Transport Layer Security (TLS). SensorCloud is currently built on top of Amazon Web Services, which provides a world-class secure and trusted platform.
Data stored on SensorCloud is the sole property of the SensorCloud customer. All SensorCloud Data is private by default, but can be shared with other users that you authorize. Full responsibilities for data ownership, accessibility and access control are outlined in the Services Agreement[pdf].
An ITAR version of SensorCloud is available to host sensitive data, and address U.S. government security and compliance requirements.
Built on top of AWS GovCloud, SensorCloud ITAR provides you with the same great SensorCloud experience, while adhering to ITAR regulations, the FedRAMP requirements, Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS), DoD (SRG) Impact Levels 2 and 4 and 5, and several other security and compliance requirements.
SensorCloud ITAR meets ITAR and FedRAMP regulations. All users are screened for compliance with U.S. export control regulations. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
