I need a different sensor than the ones that are currently available in the FieldKit store. Is (insert sensor name here) coming soon?
You can find a list of sensor modules that are under development here; our team is also working on a few more that aren’t quite ready for the spotlight yet. If you’re interested in a particular module, please reach out to us and let us know. We always want to hear what people are looking for and it might influence what we develop next.
Finally, if you are someone with hardware development knowledge, you may be able to use our open source plans to build your own sensors on the FieldKit platform. We encourage you to discuss the possibilities on our community forum.
Is FieldKit open source? Can it be used with a private data collection to store data on a different cloud?
Yes! Everything FieldKit is open source so it is absolutely possible to set up your own private version of everything. If you do this, we would love to hear about it on the FieldKit Community Forum!
Do I need to calibrate my sensors before using them?
Currently, FieldKit Weather and FieldKit Distance modules do not require you to calibrate them before use (i.e. they ship pre-calibrated from the lab). FieldKit Water modules (pH, Water Temperature, Conductivity, and Dissolved Oxygen) may or may not ...

I want to add a new module to my FieldKit station or swap out an existing module. How should I do that?
For best results, we recommend that you turn off your FieldKit station before changing out modules and then turn it back on.
Do you have water level sensors that can be connected to FieldKit Water?
We have water level sensors, yes! Water level sensing is included in the Distance sensor pack. You can deploy your water level sensor in conjunction with other FieldKit sensors, anchoring the kit on land near the water line. You could also combine a ...
