Can anyone explain to me why the last too nights my brightness lux light will not go to zero after dark, it defaults to a number 7 and more or less stays there all night? It used to go to zero until this started to happen.
I noticed something similar and then realized it was light reflections off a local cloud layer. The next night with clear skies, the lux reading was back to zero.
Yeah I don’t know, perhaps something like that could play a role, I think it is odd that it loves the number 7lux when this occurs.
When that happens look outside for any bright object including the moon.
I diffently do that believe me I’m searching for any clues to give excuse, not having any luck yet. I have another station accurite with brightness feature and it never does that it goes to zero right at dark and stays there until dawn. I know tempest is an altogether different animal.
And it is very sensitive to light. 7 lux could be a street light or a light in a neighbor’s yard.
Wow I wonder how it hit zero as many nights as it did then? Because everything is pretty much the same conditions night after night around here. Strange and sensitive.
I really don’t see how it can ever be zero unless you live in a really dark area. I’ll have to check mine. Maybe the zero is the aberration not the 7?
Edit: Mines 0 consistantly which suprises me but its a fairly dark area. Can you reinstall the firmware update? Works in other tech.
Mine bottoms out at 5 lux due to near by streetlight.
