Favorite home weather station?


Recommended Posts

  • 1 year later...

I'm using the Ambient Weather ws-2902a WiFi Osprey solar powered wireless PWS

The only batteries it uses are for the solar panel backup and the memory backup in the display.

Worth putting a good set of batteries in each year.  

only a bit of a stumble getting it set up to connect to my modem for online reading and data logging.

This is my choice for a well designed and easy to use unit.

Looking into getting a home weather station. I would like to have solar power too.

thanks for any ideas.

I have been running a Davis VUE for some years and it has performed flawlessly.  Yearly maintenance consists of inspection, cleanup and change of batteries.   It is wireless and compatible with their data logger.  For raw wind data, I have a Maximum Maestro 2S in the event that we have a decent wind gust.   Here in NW Louisiana we rarely have winds, even in thunderstorms.

Definitely the Vantage Pro2... Still using my original installed in 2003. Have replaced rain gage, anemometer and temp sensor once during that time...No other problems to speak of. Backup battery in iss has been replaced 3 or 4 times, so very good indeed. Not a fan of the all in one stations at all... Can't have temp, rain and wind sensor at same height and expect accuracy on all three. Of course budget and installation availability may limit what you can purchase.
