The Edyn Garden Sensor needs good contact between the tip of the device and soil in order to read correctly. Sometimes erosion or heavy rains can cause an air pocket to form around the tip and depress the readings. If this happens, we recommend removing the device, cleaning the tip with a wet cloth, and replacing it in a different area of your garden. Make sure that the soil is thoroughly wet BEFORE inserting the sensor, and then compact the soil around the sensor shaft to ensure good contact. It can take up to 30 minutes AFTER the device is re-inserted into the soil for the moisture percentage to be updated in the Edyn app. Please be advised, the text-based recommendations ("your soil is dry") can take up to 24 hours to update as they analyze live data AND historical data over the past 24 hours.
