Will the wifi version of the sensor work with slow wifi?

We are in a rural area, and our wifi is very slow, especially for upload–as low as 1 Mb at times. Still, it would be nice to be able to contribute data to the real-time map. How much of a data stream does the sensor generate? Will slow wifi work?


Hi @lizg.nm, you can view the data usage of PurpleAir sensors in the following article: PurpleAir Sensors Functional Overview. PurpleAir sensors send minimal data, so it should still work even with a slow WiFi connection. Ensure that the device is close enough to the router that it won’t disconnect, and make sure that not too many devices are connected to the network, causing it to slow down too much.
