What do the lights on the sensor station circuit board mean?

            The lights on the circuit board help you understand how the sensor station is working.

            Inside of your sensor station electronics box, you should see the following "cheat sheet"


            Good

            If the sensor station has good communication with the base station, you will see a solid green light, a flashing blue light, and then the lights will turn off. 

            Radio Disconnected

            It's possible for the radio module (we call it the Mercury Module) to become disconnected. If the radio is disconnected, the sensor station can't send the moisture and temperature data it collects to the base station. If this happens, you will see a solid red light on the circuit board. 

            Can't Connect to Base Station

            If the base station is too far away from your sensor station or doesn't have clear line-of-sight, you might see a solid green light. 

            Connection Failed

            If the base station is within range, but the sensor station fails to send the data to it, you might see a solid green light, followed by a flashing blue light, and then a solid red light. 

            Sensor Disconnected

            It doesn't happen often, but if one of your soil moisture sensors or your temperature sensor becomes disconnected, you might see a solid green light, followed by a flashing blue light, and then a flashing red light. 

            Low Battery

            You won't need to do this very often, but you'll see a solid green light, followed by a flashing red light, then a flashing blue light if you need to replace the batteries in your sensor station.
