ThingSpeak is an open-source software written in Ruby which allows users to communicate with internet enabled devices.[2] It facilitates data access, retrieval and logging of data by providing an API to both the devices and social network websites. ThingSpeak was originally launched by ioBridge in 2010 as a service in support of IoT applications.[3]

ThingSpeak has integrated support from the numerical computing software MATLAB from MathWorks,[4] allowing ThingSpeak users to analyze and visualize uploaded data using MATLAB without requiring the purchase of a MATLAB license from MathWorks.[5]

ThingSpeak has been the subject of articles in specialized "Maker" websites like Instructables,[6] Codeproject,[7] and Channel 9.[8]
