hi, i'm making something similar to yours, i know a lot of time has elapsed, but i'll input my knowledge. For your problem it has to do with how the data you are collecting is saved and the configuration for taking measurements you are using. You probably are using a pull measurement, instead of constant measurement. So the device will give you the data saved in register, before taking a new measurement. For example if you take a measure every 1hour, without turning off, it will give you the measurement of the preview hour each time you request for data. This is common in a lot of systems with registers. So your problem may be that when you turn on the device, there is garbage on the register. Thats why you have to do 2 measurements to get the actual value.
