Hello there,

Stay with the 30 seconds interval then, we usually do not recommend to go below 30 seconds for any sensor as it might not work properly. With flow sensors it's also differently, since flows are processed anyway in the sensor, no matter what scanning interval you choose, it only affects how often the incoming data will be "dissected" in "Live Data" tab.

Kind regards,
