I am a new user of the EnviroPlus PIM486
I have all the example files working well - but I am not too sure how to understand the noise sensor’s output.
shows the functions available from the sensor - I guess more can be built to extract more from the sensor. Is there some doc on the sensor?
By default I understand it’ll sample the noise for 0.5 sec and can provide a profile.
Do you know if it provides a way to get the volume levels (in dB) ?
I am not a noise/sound expert, but I would like to store some data to get the average noise level and/or profile (amp/freq) of a room across the day. Would you recommend increasing the noise sampling period - or store multiple readings and average them out per unit of time?
Any thoughts appreciated
