AirBeam2 - zero or close to zero PM (1, 2.5 and 10) readings
Hi al,
I just purchased an AirBeam2 sensor. The first time I tried it there were some low PM readings but they were there. However, all I get now are readings equal or very close to zero (1-2) for PM1, PM2.5 and PM10. Temperature and RH seem to be OK. Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

I just downloaded the AirCasting App to read PM2.5 data out of the Shinyei PM sensor. The app is able to connect to the app in my phone. The app is able to detect my phone microphone as one of the sensor option, but not the Arduino Shinyei sensor.

Any help would be very appreciated.

The AirBeam doesn't measure PM10 or total particulates. It only measures PM2.5.

Sounds like the air you're measuring doesn't contain much particle pollution. If you'd like to test the response of the AirBeam2 to particulate matter burn some paper.
