I recall you (or at least I think it was you) who had a pretty snazzy looking Oregon Scientific weather station on here about 2 or 3 (or maybe more) years ago. Do you still have it and if so, how is it holding up?

My Weatherflow Tempest Weatherstations arrived start of December, I think.



I still have to stick the one here at home up on the roof of my gaff. For now, I just stuck it on a tripod on the back lawn

There's a guy, that has developed a plugin for the Weatherflow weatherstations for the OpenHAB home automation platform. Only got around to load that today and test it out



That way, I can also record the data in an InfluxDB database and graph it over a longer time, plus compare it with the data, I have from my old weatherstation.

The data is collected locally on the network and uses the Smart Weather UDP Broadcast protocol to collect the data, so no cloud access needed.

For reference: the power consumption of the floodlights has significance in the manner, that they are on a PIR sensor.

So with them starting to use power means, that it has gotten dark enough for them to turn on. They do turn off at 1:00 in the morning on a timer. The blip at 15:00 is the timer turning them back on, but then going off, as it's too light.

Handy to compare to the illumnation and solar radiation figures.

Added mine to WoW

Easy to do this with weatherdisplay which is a once off 59 new zealand dollars for the weather display software and can be fed from the weatherlink device
Best weather software out there
Weather display has its own neat realtime app too for another source for instant access

Advice on setting up personal weather station. Placing it near a house or other large buildings is just a no no if you want accurate readings.

Is there such a thing as an (inexpensive and easy to set up etc) wind speed device? It would be fascinating out here..

This is what I have on a pole. It uploads to many sites and I'm also sending it to an internal web server hosting a live website

Have a Davis Vantage Vue (solar panel attached to recharge itself) beginning to get on in years but I'm not planning to upgrade any time soon!

Lately I'm having an issue with the batteries. The recent frost seems to have decimated them, with the weather station losing power most nights at around 4/5am and even in unbroken sunshine doesn't function until 2/3pm the next day, if it is cloudy, it may not come back at all until the next day at 2/3pm.

The obivous solution here is to service it and replace the batteries, which I have been meaning to get around to, however despite the cloudiness of yesterday and today, the weather station has not died whatsoever, meaning I've gotten 60+ hours of battery life in cloudiness, whereas if it was sunny it would only last 12-15. Since the sunshine stopped I've also lost the low battery notification.

I'm stumped to be honest, I'll just service it and replace batteries anyway when I get a chance, but does anyone have any experience here? Does this indicate anything, or is my station just temperamental?
