How to Record Data from Sensors on an Overlay
Overlay.live includes a useful feature that allows you to record all of the incoming data points from the sensors present on a given Overlay.
Step 1: Navigate to your Overlay
From within your Overlay.live Dashboard, select an Overlay to open it in the Overlay inspector.
Step 2: Open the Overlay Recorder
At the top of the Device Inspector, above the green preview area, there is a small button that is called ‘Recorder’. Click this button to open the overlay data recorder.
Step 3: Start recording
The recorder runs in a different window which means that you can navigate to it in your Dashboard while continuously recording what’s happening. Click ‘Start Recording’ to record all the data from the sensors present on the Overlay preview area.
This will record the received data and values of all sensors.
Step 4: Stop a recording and download the data
When the recording is stopped, you can download the recorded results as a .csv file. You can load this file into a spreadsheet to analyze the data or create visualizations.
