Next you power up the sensor station which registers with the base station (you do this with the base and sensor stations in the same room to ensure that they connect), and then you can relocate the sensor to wherever it should go (I put my sensor outside about 40 feet from the base station, with a number of walls in between, and the two ends seems to have no problem connecting). And that's it, the AQE system is a great example of plug n' play done right.
Sensor data starts uploading immediately, although the gas sensor readings will be unreliable for about 20 minutes while they "warm up."
You can view the data from an AQE via the airqualityegg.com site. This shows a summary of just one AQE at a time, as well as a map showing the location of the device the location of other local AQEs. You can check out my data at http://airqualityegg.com/egg/97759.
This display is derived from data sent to Cosm and, for unknown reasons, my AQE's gas sensors are currently providing spurious data; the acceptable maximums defined by the Environmental Protection Agency for NO2 is 100 parts per billion averaged over one hour while CO should not exceed 35 parts per million averaged over 1 hour, but my current readings are -2147483648 parts per billion and 111375 parts per billion respectively.
Be that as it may, I'm assuming these are teething troubles and there may be a problem with where I've sited the sensor station.
Alternatively, you can examine the raw data for an AQE via Cosm. The Cosm display graphs your AQE data over periods ranging from five minutes to three months (or longer via the system's API). For the gas sensors the raw electrical measurements are also shown, but I can't find an explanation of why these matter. Note that the NO2 level of 101 ppb as shown by Cosm appears to be more realistic than the ridiculous value shown on the airqualityegg.com display.
If you're logged into Cosm, the page for an individual AQE also allows you to set up the previously mentioned triggers for each data stream (these can be for conditions such as less than, greater than, or equal to a value, or when the value changes at all), a map showing the location of the AQE, and the registration details.
Again, you can view my AQE data via Cosm at https://cosm.com/feeds/97759.
