AirCasting: restrictions on sensor values?
Only integers can be displayed in the AirCasting app UI but for sensors that report values with decimal places, these decimals are recorded, i.e. you can see them when you download the CSV file. There may be a limit to the number of digits that can be displayed. In my experience 5 and 6 digit n...

Aircasting App
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.

Thanks
