Remote Thing - variable isconnected - not update


I have sucessfully connected a ESP8266 to the Thingworx Composer. I can read sensor data from it (I see them changing when i hit the refresh button in the properties section of the thing).
BUT when i create a “remote thing” the system variable isconnected is false all the time… How can I change this?
Best regards


Hello @Arminf848,

Please note that the Academic ThingWorx edition featured in the courses present on this website have a series of limitations that make them unfit for certain type of connections. The ThingWorx access provided in the Pre-Work section is customized to provide a better learning experience when associated with the learning materials featured on

If you are using a different version of ThingWorx, I would recommend you post your question on the ThingWorx Community Website.
