A variable is a series of data-points that change over time. In most applications it will represent a physical sensor that measures something from the real world, such as Temperature, Humidity, Pressure, Water Level, Disk Usage... or any time-stamped data!

This is a simple way of looking at our API structure:

  • Your account contains Devices
  • Devices contain Variables
  • Variables contain Values

In business licenses, this structure a bit larger though:

  • Your Business account contains Apps
  • Apps contain Organizations
  • Organizations contain Users and Devices
  • Devices contain Variables
  • Variables contain Values

You can create, edit or delete variables through either our frontend or our API.
