Each sensor is awarded a 100-point setup bonus the first time it is connected to the PlanetWatch network. The performance of each sensor in the network is assessed daily and a score is assigned as follows:

  • If the sensor has delivered more than 50% of the expected daily data streams, it is deemed qualifying and it earns one point;
  • If the sensor has failed to deliver more than 50% of the expected daily data streams, it is not qualifying and loses one point.

For Type 1 and Type 2 sensors, additional rules apply.

  • In each pixel, the Type 1 sensor which gets installed first and streams data for at least 30 qualifying days from that pixel is entitled to a 100-point Pioneer bonus. Likewise, the first five Type 2 sensors installed in each pixel earn the Pioneer bonus. 

These bonuses can only be earned once in a sensor’s lifetime, even if the sensor changes location;

For a given sensor, a Local Reputation Score applies in each pixel. If a sensor is moved to a new location in another pixel, its Local Reputation Score in this new location starts at 0. Over time, it will earn reputation points in the new pixel or lose them.

    If i move the Type 1 sensor 60 ft away, is it consider as "location change" and can affect my reputation ?

    I'm looking at 2 different installation scenario (while waiting to be able to purchase Sensor type 1). Already purchase the licence.

    I know the data are transmit over Cell instead of WIFI (too bad, i have a PoE outside WIFI ready, on UPS !)
