Experiencing issues with receiving Sigfox measurements can be frustrating, especially when you have an active Blueriiot Premium subscription. 

Step 1: Check Device Placement

  • Skimmer or Cover Interference: Ensure that the Blue Connect device is not placed too close to the skimmer or under a pool or jacuzzi cover. These locations can interfere with the signal.
  • Optimal Placement: It is often more effective to place the device in an open area of the pool where it can transmit data without obstructions.

Step 2: Evaluate Environmental Factors

  • Signal Obstructions: Check for any potential obstructions that might block the signal from reaching the nearest Sigfox antenna. This includes physical barriers around your pool area.
  • Antenna Proximity: If there is only one antenna within reach, the signal strength may not be sufficient, especially if your pool is located at the edge of the antenna's coverage area.

Step 3: Battery and Connectivity Checks

  • Battery Status: A low battery can affect the device’s ability to transmit data. Check if your Blue Connect’s battery needs replacement, especially if it's nearing the end of its expected life span.
