Recently purchased the air quality sensor for my ourweather project, but I'm trying to determine what the best positioning of the sensor should be. I'm guessing the sensor will be of little use within a sealed weatherproof box, but perhaps I'm wrong?
I don't see how that is going to give you good results at all. There won't be much air movement in a tube. I have placed a fan in front of one (in front of a screen covered hole) in Project Curacao2, but the system crashed before I got to those experiments. I'm heading down to Curacao in early August to fix it and then I can run the experiments. Tough duty, but someone has to do it.
However, based on this statement from the instructions...." but the real problem is that you can’t reliably reduce the I2C to 20,000 baud on all Raspberry Pi devices (Zero, W, 3B+, 4B) and it just doesn’t work at all on the new Pis and the Buster OS. The driver will not work."
What is the situation with the RPi 2B I will be using as there is no mention of that model being a problem ?
