Accessing and integrating your sensor data
Our technology is system agnostic, so the data from our sensors can be used in any way you need
Flexible and interoperable sensor technology
Essentially, the way you access data depends on what you want to use the data for. There are different options to choose from, making it easy to get your data in the way that’s right for you.
Access your sensor data in a spreadsheet
Ideal for testing validation of sensor data, proof of concepts (POCs) or small sensing projects. Our sensor data to spreadsheet functionality offers a simple way of viewing data from Pressac sensors without the complications of setting up a real IoT solution.
Our smart gateway can receive live sensor data from sensors within 30 metres line of sight, and send it directly into Google Sheets. You’ll have the ability for multiple gateways to write to a single sheet if required.

Integrate live sensor data into your software or IoT platform
If you want to gather and analyse sensor data to manage your whole building, this is your best option. It is also the most suitable choice if you want to introduce a smart system, such as workspace occupancy monitoring.
Our smart gateway receives real-time data wirelessly from all sensors within range (30 metres line of sight), converts the raw data into an easy-to-use JSON format, time-stamps it, then publishes it using MQTT protocol.
Data can be sent locally or to the cloud – via Ethernet, LTE (4G) or WiFi – to any MQTT broker, or securely (TLS) to IBM Watson, Microsoft Azure or AWS loT platforms.
Our gateway interface lets you quickly and easily connect directly with your chosen MQTT broker for seamless integration, or one of the leading IoT platforms for further data processing, analysis and storage before integrating with your application.

Visualise sensor data using Node-RED
Our smart gateway gives you the option of creating a local dashboard using Node-RED. This allows you to create your own simple dashboard to visualise the data in real time.
To make it even easier to visualise your data, we’ve created three pre-made Node-RED flows that create dashboards to display energy, environment or occupancy data.
Take a look at our Node-RED set-up guide to learn more.
Integrate data into an existing building management system
Using a third-party gateway, sensor data can be used in systems with protocols such as Modbus and BACnet, letting you monitor, control and report within an existing building management system.
Connect sensors directly to EnOcean controllers
Our sensors can send the data to a smart actuator, which in turn can controls aspects of your building such as heating, lighting and machinery. For example, if it receives data that a window has been opened, the air conditioning can be switched off.
This simple method gives you automated control without collecting or storing unnecessary data.
