Initial State

What is Initial State?

"Data Analytics for the Internet of Things: Stream data from your devices and applications to beautiful visualizations in your web browser."

Turn your data into something awesome and access it from anywhere

Securely send time-series data to your account from sensors, devices, software, or anything that can make an HTTPS request. Instantly turn that data into real-time dashboards, waveforms, charts, maps, and even emojis 😎. Keep your data private, share it with friends, or share it with the world.

See what is happening and what happened

Streaming data to your Initial State account not only allows you to see what is happening in real-time, but also allows you to store that data forever. Analyze what happened yesterday, last week, last month, etc. with interactive visualizations built for event data.

Transform your data in real-time

Real-time expressions give you the power to instantly manipulate, transform, and filter your data. Compute costs from watts, map values to emojis, smooth out noisy line graphs, merge data streams, convert units, and so much more.
