What is the sensor latency?

The latency depends primarily on the connectivity from the Cloud Connector to the DT Cloud. Still, the sensor battery life,  a cold environment, or a weak sensor signal strength can also affect latency.

In general, you should expect the following sensor-to-cloud latencies:

  • 300–1000 ms using a cellular connection
  • 20–300 ms when connecting through Ethernet

Data Connectors and the Streaming API provide the lowest end-to-end latency from the sensor to your own application.

Please note!

These numbers are typical and they will vary greatly depending on the quality of the cellular or Ethernet connection.
