after uploading thingsspeak code to arduino the data is not showing dynamically after providing power source and i need to connect arduino to run code again in serail monitor

3 views (last 30 days)
I have written a thingspeak arduino code for mkr1000 and uploaded it but i had problem in sending data to thingspeak once i run the code in serial monitor the values appeared in thingsspeak website , and now i unpluged the arduino board from my pc and connected it to a battery and the values are not displaying in thingspeak website and i waited for morethan 2 minutes .Then i again connected the board to my pc and opened the serial monitor in arduino ide now i can see the data appearing in thingspeak website . Do i need to run serial monitor everytime when i want to send my sensor data to arduino. or can i upload the code and use a battery directly as power souce to send data to thingspeak.

WriteSingleField
Description: Writes a value to a channel on ThingSpeak every 20 seconds.
Hardware: Arduino MKR1000
!!! IMPORTANT - Modify the secrets.h file for this project with your network connection and ThingSpeak channel details. !!!
Note:
- Requires WiFi101 library version 0.15.3 or newer.
- This example is written for a network using WPA encryption. For WEP or WPA, change the WiFi.begin() call accordingly.
ThingSpeak ( https://www.thingspeak.com ) is an analytic IoT platform service that allows you to aggregate, visualize, and
analyze live data streams in the cloud. Visit https://www.thingspeak.com to sign up for a free account and create a channel.
Documentation for the ThingSpeak Communication Library for Arduino is in the README.md folder where the library was installed.
See https://www.mathworks.com/help/thingspeak/index.html for the full ThingSpeak documentation.
