The time between measurements depends on the Heartbeat Interval (HBI) and the number of samples in each heartbeat.
The heartbeat interval controls how often data is sent to the cloud. Temperature sensors can be set to 5, 15, 30, 45, or 60-minute heartbeat intervals using Studio or the API. The shortest measurement interval can be configured to be as low as every 30 seconds. Users can adjust the sensor to capture 1 to 30 samples during a single heartbeat.
|HBI||Shortest Measurement Interval|
|60 min||120 sec|
|15 min||30 sec|
|30 min||60 sec|
|45 min||90 sec|
The temperature often changes slowly
Please note that most real-world temperature changes are prolonged compared to our default 15-minute reporting interval.
For example, an air conditioner configured to a specific temperature will take one hour or more to cool down or heat, a room to that temperature, depending on the temperature change. During this time, you will have multiple data points to monitor the temperature change.
New Beta feature in Studio!
All users can now change the configuration of the Heartbeat Interval directly from Studio on all sensor types. Note that it is not possible to configure them to lower than 15 minutes, except for new temperature sensors and CO2 sensors that can go down to 5 minutes.
