Although this is possible, and you can define intervals of 1 second, bear in mind we do not actively support scanning intervals smaller than 10 seconds.

Please have a look at I wondered if I can create a scanning interval less than 30 seconds? If so how can I do that?. The information for version 8 is still current.
