Open-source IoT Platform

Device management, data collection, processing and visualization
for your IoT projects
Getting Started

Thingsboard is an open-source IoT platform for data collection, processing, visualization, and device management.

It enables device connectivity via industry standard IoT protocols - MQTT, CoAP and HTTP and supports both cloud and on-premises deployments. Thingsboard combines scalability, fault-tolerance and performance so you will never lose your data.

Real-Time IoT Dashboards

Thingsboard allows you to create rich IoT Dashboards for data visualization and remote device control in real-time. More than 30 customizable widgets allows you to build end-user custom dashboards for most IoT use-cases.

Provision and manage devices

Provision, monitor and control your devices in secure way using rich server-side APIs.

Collect and visualize data

Collect and store telemetry data in scalable and fault-tolerant way. Visualize your data with built-in or custom widgets and flexible dashboards. Share dashboards with your customers.

Process and React

Define data processing rules and trigger reactions using plugins.

IoT Gateway

Integrate devices connected to legacy and third-party systems using existing protocols. Connect to your OPC-UA server or MQTT broker in minutes by following this guide.

Thingsboard Features

Telemetry Data Collection

Collect and store telemetry data in reliable way, surviving network and hardware failures. Access collected data using customizable web dashboards or server-side APIs.

Horizontal scalability

Amount of supported server-side requests and devices increase linearly as new thingsboard servers are added in clustering mode. No downtime, server restarts or application errors.

Data Visualization

Provides 30+ configurable widgets out-of-the-box and ability to create your own widgets using built-in editor. Built-in line-charts, digital and analog gauges, maps and much more.


All thingsboard servers are identical. No master-workers or hot standby. Node failure is automatically detected. Failed nodes can be replaced without downtime. Persisted data is replicated using reliable NoSQL database.

IoT Rule Engine

Process incoming device data with flexible rules and plugins based on device attributes or message content. Forward data to external systems or trigger alarms using rules. Enrich server-side functionality or send commands to devices using plugins.


Supports transport encryption for both MQTT and HTTP(s) protocols. Supports device authentication and device credentials management.

Device Management

Provides ability to register and manage devices. Allows to monitor client-side and provision server-side device attributes. Provides API for server-side applications to send RPC commands to devices and vice-versa.

Customization and Integration

Extend default platform functionality using customizable rules, plugins, widgets and transport implementations. In addition to MQTT, CoAP and HTTP support, Thingsboard users can use their own transport implementations or customize behaviour of existing protocols.


Support multi-tenant installations out-of-the-box. Single tenant may have multiple tenant administrators and millions of devices and customers.
