Save sensor data longer time

Right now, it's only possible to get the latest value from a sensor.

I suggest a new feature in the API that allows developers to retrieve historical sensor data. This would allow both developers and the official "Telldus Live"-page to display graphs over temperature and, maybe, humidity.

Sensor data could be saved up to a month or more.

Change History

  • Priority changed from major to minor

This is not a hard task to implement, programmatically. We have been thinking of this for a while but the issue at hand is really the amount of data.
Currently we are processing about 20 million sensor values each month, and this number is only increasing. Keep in mind that the number of TellStick Net out there so far is very limited.
In order to store the history we must find a solution to handle this in an economically viable way first.

How about adding a (small) monthly fee for history data (maybe even in a way that you can pay more to get more history etc.)? I know at least I'm too lazy to write my own history logger if there is one available for a small fee.

Keep the current functionality as a "lite" package and for small fee get more features.
