Is there a way to access data from a local ThingSpeak server using the ThingSpeak Matlab Toolbox?

14 views (last 30 days)
I would like to use the functions made available in the ThingSpeak Support toolbox (e.g. the thingSpeakAuthenticate function) to read/write data on a private installation of a ThingSpeak server, rather than the cloud service on, but I could not find a way to point Matlab towards the IP/web address hosting the ThingSpeak server. Is it possible at all?
