Same data even after changing conditions

For my 1st project i.e. the plant monitor after deployment I am getting exactly the same data even after changing lighting conditions.

There is also a bug with this page, while uploading any picture or screenshot here, it is throwing an alert message that the request time is different.
So I can’t attach anything here.

@BOLT Team please do fix this.

There might not be extreme changes in the lighting condition.
I tried the same project this morning and had received data that varied from 8 to 9 and vice versa I guess LDR might just notice the extreme changes in the lighting condition.
This is regards to my understanding although I might be wrong.

hi Sahelikantha…even I had encountered with the same problem initially but after changing the lighting conditions largely and took 7 to 8 readings then i observed the changes in the data

What is the value that you are getting?

We will check the bug that you are facing of not able to upload the pic. Will keep you posted.

I am only getting 1.02.

Also there is another bug. While replying or creating any topic here on Bolt Forum, the time it’s showing is incorrect.

Like, I am replying just now by typing in a minute and sending but it’s showing 18 mins before I have posted that.

Change the resistor. In the bolt training, they use a 10k ohm (brown black orange) resistor. It is too high a value. Change the resistor to the 330 ohm one provided in the kit (orange orange brown). This is what worked for me


It worked for me, thank you.
