The data can be downloaded using the OpenSensors.io APIs, e.g. using a Python script or similar. I've been working on fleshing out this capability recently, and would be happy to work with you to see if what I'm doing meets your needs or if we can make it friendlier.
The sampling, averaging, and reporting intervals are runtime configurable using a terminal with the Egg in config mode. The default settings are 5 second sampling and reporting intervals, and 160 second averaging interval (moving average). With the right settings you can disable averaging (i.e. sampling interval equal to averaging interval).
The Egg is environmentally resistant, but not truly water proof. It is intended for outdoor use in general though. We typically recommend that the Egg be kept out of direct sunlight and that it be sheltered from the rain (e.g. under the eaves of a house)
The sensors used on the Egg are capable of measuring 0 to 20ppm for NO2, and 0 to 1000ppm for CO. Much larger ranges than what would typically be found in nature.
