Just wanted to share some of the ThingSpeak IOT platform's capabilities and how it has been used for this project. 

ThingSpeak is powered by MATLAB which allows for easy data analysis and data viz. The visualizations can be updated in real-time as the data arrives which allows you to seek trends and create smart alerts. For FLORA I have done a basic moving averaged time series plot, 2 hours, 1 day, and 1-week window, & a boxplot to help view the distribution during the day. 

You can see the live plots through these two links; 


Hope this shows how FLORA can leverage existing IOT platforms to help inform better decisions and actions.
