Connect physical Objects
to timeseries database

t6 Features

Digital Asset Management

Track Objects and devices on t6 platform including geolocation and security secrets.

Data Flows

They are simple (optional) containers to control where to store the measurements. This is helpful when it comes to Data Exploration. Flows are also defining the datatype constraints and make sure measures are accurate + sanitized.


Datapoints are the measure and values stored to timeseries.

Image Processing and AIDC

Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) is able to identify a face from an image sent to t6 as well as identify gender, age, and face expressions.

Objects localization

Find your Objects on a map and trigger actions based on geofencing.

Over The Air code synchronization (OTA)

Update your arduino sensors from Wifi on LAN using OTA protocol.

Https transport protocol

Payload signature

Force (option) any payload to be signed from the Objects to prevent data tampering.

AES256 cbc encryption

t6 allows End-To-End AES encryption from the measures sent on payloads until the storage as well as the rule engine and Mqtt events.

Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA)

Dashboards and Snippets

Flexible and reusable Snippets (from a common library) inside multiple Dashboards; allows you to displays measures to curves and bars.

Rule engine

Trigger various actions based on customizable rules from facts (your measured values sent to t6 Api).

JWT tokens & Authentication

Authentication in t6 is available in 3 modes : a matching username+passwords for credentials; a valid Key+Secret temporary and revokable token; or a refresh token process. All of these modes generates a signed JWT from the server and can be used fo a limited time.

Arduino library

Implement your own Arduino code in IDE using the public t6 library to easy device onboarding.

IoT application and Use cases

Smart City

t6 ease IoT sensors & actuators deployment within the city. Data are stored on t6 and trigger actions to prevent traffic congestion, road lighting, car park management, safety and so on.

Smart Home

Turn on/off light depending on the time of the day or any other conditions.

Smart Energy

Control thermostats on the rooms; monitor power consumption and so on ...

Smart Fleet

Deploy Over the Air (OTA). t6 is ready to deliver to any of your Objects using a simple Api. The code is spread to all compatible Objects.

Smart Data

t6 embed customizabel dashboards and can trigger action based on multi-criteria events to alert you for any relevant information.

Api first documentation: Live, eat, and breathe the API-first lifestyle of t6.


Physical World

Physical World are composed by your sensors and actuators. Physical Objects require a virtual Object in t6 and then, they could add Data to Flows. Sample nodeMCU and Arduino scripts are available in the sensors repositories.
An additional script can be runned periodically (crontab rule necessary) and performe the required action from the settings:
$> nodejs sensor.js --run "{{sensor_id}}" > /dev/null 2>&1
This kind of Virtual sensors are capable of getting direct data from a linux bash command (e.g. Getting HDD temperature: '/usr/sbin/hddtemp -u C -n -q /dev/sda')
Physical Objects require a "virtual" Object declared on t6 before adding DataPoints to Flows. Meaning a Flow container help the Api to find your data and graph them on the Snippets.

Technical documentation

Api first in a Rest api ; including security (JWT tokens) and quotas. It contains dedicated endpoint to easily manipulate your resources: Objects, Flows, Dashboards, Snippets & Rules.

Resources available on t6

  1. devices_other

    Objects, sensors and actuators

    Objects are virtual items dedicated to push data to flows. Objects are defined for each Users.
    Objects in t6 are the virtual nodes of your physical devices. They are sending values from their embedded sensors to the Flows. Common cardinality is 1:1; but you can setup multiple Flows for the same Object (a DHT11 sensor handle 'temperature' and 'humidity' for instance). Additionally, you can set a Flow to be feed from multiple Objects.
    More details
  2. settings_input_component

    Flows & DataPoints

    Flows are datastore to save time/values (DataPoints). Each Object can POST data to multiple Flows. Flows are defined for each Users and are having permissions.
    Communication becomes easy in the platform with Timestamped values. Flows allows to retrieve and classify data.
    Objects are sending their Data to Flow-containers using the API.
    More details
  3. dashboard

    Dashboards to graph, draw, and monitor

    Dashboard includes one or many Snippets to visualize your data. You can create as many dashboards as you like.
    More details
  4. widgets


    Snippets refers to small component containing a dashboard. Multiple variety are available and the library aim to growth regularly.

  5. call_split

    Rules, to Alert and Notify

    Decision-Rule is the event-based engine that trigger Actions following matching Conditions. Engine is watching for fact matching conditions on payloads coming from datapoint POST, and handle Action(s) according to rules.

  6. volume_down

    Mqtt, to communicate
