Recommendations for off grid station with GSM transmitter?
« on: June 07, 2017, 03:06:32 PM »
Hello,

I have an off-grid cabin and I would like to find a weather station which:

- Measures and logs temperature at ground level and 1m off the ground, humidity, pressure, wind speed and direction, rainfall, sun light intensity.
once per 30 minutes is enough.

- Has its own solar power source and battery, or able to connect to existing 12v/24v solar power system.

- Able to transmit data using a 3G/4G sim card, or connect to a raspberry pi which will transmit the data using 3g/4g sim card module.

Bonus features:
Would be nice to have a camera.

There are no budget limitations.
Does a product like that exist off the shelf on the market, or will I have to fabricobble together some contraption from several components?

Many thanks!
FinnishWeather.

A Davis ISS (eg 6334) and Connect unit can do all this (except for the camera, which would need to be organised independently).

Hey Bushman,
it doesn't seem like their webpage is ready yet.

There are no prices listed anywhere, also from what I see this is just a transmitter meant to work with Davis instruments, so it's essentially the same the Davis connect? Or did I understand incorrectly?
Thanks!
