    I’m very much a fan of ModularSensors and the discussion board as a place to be real with technical issues.   I do so appreciate the unique place EnviroDIY has been curated to be, to try some remote wireless terrestrial monitoring. Its the nitty gritty of environmental monitoring and the engineering it takes.   Its tough to find out what these services cost – so hope it works out.  I’ve contacted the funder of the project I’ve been in to let them know of the late changing conditions. On a commercial scale the initial entry is pretty low cost , but going to be expensive if  it scales.  I hope it  can keep up with the demanding changing technical bar.

    There are some really nice features mentioned, though I’m curious as to whether this constitutes a “Service Level Agreement”, and is there a verification plan.

    A critical technical statement  that is missing is the expected response from the server. Device POSTing is only as good as the servers response time.

    There have been a couple of windowed losses in data storage on MMW and the subject doesn’t seem to be addressed-

    and I brought it up locally –  https://www.envirodiy.org/topic/mmw-lost-readings/

    so curious how real-world issues are going to be addressed.  Many thanks. Neil
