Nature of values submitted every minute

Hello everyone,

I might be making a silly question, but haven’t been able to find the answer anywhere in the forum or documentation:

What exactly do the values shown in the platform (for an specific kit and for any of the magnitudes measured) refer to?

I know that data is shown in the platform every minute, but would like to know if this value (updated every minute) refers to a mean value of the last minute, the maximum value during that minute, etc.

Thank you all!

Hello,

The kit takes a reading of one instant every minute.

Depending on the specific sensor the real measuring period vary but it is always in the range of milliseconds. This behavior allow us (when on battery) to go to sleep mode and save power.

Hope this helps!
