Seneye Products > Using seneye connect software application SCA > Light meter tab on the seneye connect application

     

    The seneye connect application (SCA) gives you a live read out from your light meter, a seneye reef device.

    This powerful tool can be used to help you understand the light levels in your aquarium giving you an output of PAR, LUX, Kelvin and a Calculation of PUR. To access your light meter output please follow the instructions below:

     

    1. Click on one of the light meter output tiles on the SCA

    If you cannot see the SCA, it may be in the system tray on your PC. Click here to find out how to check.

    This will open the detailed page for the light meter output which is shown below:

    The values for PAR, LUX, Kelvin and PUR are shown along the top of the screen. If you are not getting a Kelvin reading and want to know why click here.

    The graph on the left gives you an indication of the spectral output from your lighting.

    The graph on the right shows the Kelvin output of the lighting. A Kelvin is any point on the black line. If the colour is not a Kelvin, then the point is not shown.

    The "Top", "Middle", "Bottom" & "Free" buttons allow you to save light readings which are then uploaded to seneye.me

     

    2. Move the seneye device around the aquarium to read different light levels

    The seneye light meter sensor is located on the back of the seneye device in the round window. To read the light levels in your aquarium this will need to be positioned at the point where you want to take the reading. The reading on the SCA will update in real-time so you can get an idea of the different light levels in your aquarium and see how position and depth affect the output. A guide to the output can be found here for freshwater & here for marine.
