Hello, This is more of a scientific question that support with the actual device. I need to find out the detection distance of the device for the spider monkeys that I am studying. This is much more complicated than I first thought as the detection distance will vary based on not only distance and height (which is easy to test) but it will vary based on the loudness (dB) of the call and frequency. So I have to test several different calls of varying dB and frequency. What I think I need to do is to play different calls of the monkeys into the speakers at different heights, distances and dB levels however I dont know the dB of the speakers or spider monkeys. I did find that some speakers state their dB level and watt which has a rough conversion but I dont know if this is something I can use. Does anyone know if there is a reliable conversion from watt to dB or another way to know this? Or does anyone know how I measure the dB and frequency of prerecorded spider monkey calls, or maybe I cannot even use prerecorded calls? I also found a paper on measuring detection distances but they dont account for any of these questions as they never actually discuss the sound used. If anyone has any advice on this or has solved these issues already any advice would be much appreciated! Thank you. Jenna
One of my older units (1.0.0) refuses to work (no files written when I deploy). I have flashed with the latest firmware (1.2.2), but when I try to configure or use the Time app. I get a reading of <3.6 v. The batteries are new, and if I put them in another unit I get a reading of 4.8 v. Any ideas?
