Light Sensor Logger POD-1L

Light Sensor Logging

POD-1L is a compact, high end wireless sensor package ideal for measuring, tracking, and analyzing light quality whether for LED systems, agriculture, indoor displays, or other uses.

The onboard SensorGraph processes incoming sensor data from the six different wavelengths to produce high-level events. Data is available in real time over Bluetooth or via gateways to a cloud messaging system.

Historical data is uploaded to the cloud where our analytics package let you analyze sensor-by-sensor, area-by-area, or across your whole operation.
