Happy to hear you we're able to get everything working. Also note that while actively recording a session you can toggle between sensor streams by a) pressing the "eye" icon on the "Sensors Dashboard" screen; or b) pressing the "Avg", "Now", or "Peak" circles and selecting a sensor from the list.

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?
