Summary

The Data to Server feature provides you with the possibility to set up data senders that collect data from various sources and periodically send it to remote servers.

If you're having trouble finding this page or some of the parameters described here on your device's WebUI, you should turn on "Advanced WebUI" mode. You can do that by clicking the "Basic" button under "Mode", which is located at the top-right corner of the WebUI.

Data Senders

A Data Sender is an instance that gathers and periodically sends collected data to a specified server. The Data Senders list is empty by default so, in order to begin configuration you must add a new data sender first. To add a new data sender, click the 'Add' button.

After this you should be redirected to the newly added data sender's configuration page.
