External Recorder


The External Recorde allows you to record data from a device inside your project to a external database.

It works like a normal Recorder, plus it gives you the chance to set up a “influxdb” gateway to export the data into your external database.


  • You could set up a External Recorder to record data from multiple places, you can have more that one X1 server that aim to the same Data Base from different buildings.
