HOW DOES THE INFORMATION FROM THE SENSOR STATIONS GET TO MY PHONE/COMPUTER?
Each sensor station transmits moisture and temperature data to a central base station, which uses a cellular signal to transmit to the cloud. Our software interprets and processes the data before it is displayed to a user via their web browser.

WHAT DOES THE GRAPH'S Y-AXIS REFER TO?
