Wireless Weather Envoy™ – SKU 6316

(3 customer reviews)

Weather Envoy can “listen” to any transmitting station, including a retransmitting console, up to 1000 feet (300 meters).

Includes AC Power Adapter and screws for wall mounting.

 

Description

If you want to place your Vantage Pro2 or Vantage Vue console far away from your computer, but still want to receive data on your computer through WeatherLink, you can add a Weather Envoy to your system. Simply connect your WeatherLink data logger to the Envoy and then connect the Envoy to your computer or router. The Envoy will receive data from your integrated sensor suite or console and transfer it to your computer or WeatherLink.com. This way, you can have your console wherever you prefer, like by your bed or in the kitchen, without needing to bring it back to the computer to download data.

With Weather Envoy, you can even skip the console altogether and view your data directly on your computer using WeatherLink or online with WeatherLinkIP.

If you want to install the Envoy in a remote field location, you can use a Solar Power Kit. You can manually download data from the Envoy to your laptop periodically. The Envoy also includes inside temperature and barometer readings. If you are installing the Envoy outside in a shelter, you can add an external temperature probe to replace the “inside” temperature reading.

    it was easy to set up
    This works, it was easy to set up. We now have a Davis and Wunderground webpage. Also able to see home weather on my iPhone.Used this with the WeatherlinkIP data logger. Wireless is the way to go.

    So frustrating this doesn’t just have a serial port but it works.

  3. S. Bryant

    Works well enough but shouldn’t be needed
    Relatively easy to set up, but I still wonder why neither this or my Vantage Pro2 can’t connect to our home network via wi-fi. It seems to me that this shouldn’t even be needed.
