The LS4 converts the pulse history to a generic usage and sends a 24-hour history of usage to the Gateway in each message. The 6 hours leading up the normal check-in is stored in 5 minute intervals (72 usage records), and the other 18 hours is stored in 30 minute intervals (36 usage records). The Gateway passes these reads up to the NextCentury cloud which then analyzes the usage history to determine whether a toilet is leaking.
