    I am experimenting with the x2m200 to create a meditation room focussing on the breathing exercises synced with philips hue lights. Everything is communicating flawlessly except for the sensor and the breath sync i.e. the values received by the sensor are very jittery and not in sync with the actual breathing. Even in the XeThru explorer the signal quality randomly switches between 0-10 and there are huge gaps in data.

    1. Is there a best practice of setting up the sensor in a physical environment?
    2.Does it have to placed with respect to the user?
    3. Should I not use the Web Explorer as its still in it beta phase.

    Any leads would be very helpful.

    I am using the XeThru web explorer demo and then using processing to listen to the local host and getting the values from there to control the philips hue lights.

    Hi Debanshu,

    The sensor is designed for respiration detection during sleep or when the person is sitting still. Make sure that the user is sitting steady and not moving. You will get best results, especially when you have to rely on the breathing pattern, when the sensor points straight to the user's chest. See this app note for more details: https://www.xethru.com/community/resources/x2m200-sleep-monitoring-introduction.66/

    We're running some tests too by collecting continuous data with the X4M200 respiration sensor and experiencing also always long gaps in the data around same time. What possible reason may cause these gaps? Gap = no respiration data, not even zero values.

    Thank you for help!
