Not to hijack your thread, but I just installed a replacement sensor that was provided to me due to my original being flagged with poor battery/charging performance (separate topic but my battery response already seems immensely better… yay!) and the new unit is experiencing false lightning readings (a wealth of them happened overnight last night). I will continue to monitor (mostly because I’m curious if this is an overnight pattern) but:
- the previous unit didn’t have this issue at all (it under-detected if anything) and the new unit went right in the same mount.
- i cannot really rotate my device as i have a solar charging optimization issue already (due to trees surrounding my station and a low solar angle in the winter)
- I live in a somewhat rural area in the PNW and we did not have any storms last night in the region (but i cannot say if an electrical sparking device was active nearby)
Will the QA, CL features eventually mark and remove these erroneous measurements? or are there any other mitigation techniques I can try? I hate to turn off the lightning alert because its actually quite useful in the region since lightning is so rare…
