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!

Please note that these are typical numbers and they will vary greatly depending on the quality of the cellular or Ethernet connection.
