AcuRite Weather Stations / Re: Acurite is blowing it

Wase4711,
I invested in the Meteobridge because it is a nice all in one solution for uploading to everywhere, seemingly right out of the box experience. It works perfectly with my Ambient station hardware. I'm waiting for a Davis VP3 (I almost got the VP2). My thinking is that the Meteobridge will be something I can continue to use with a new Davis station. So the Meteobridge is a good investment. Yes I'll need a USB or IP logger if I were to get a VP2. But maybe a VP3 might have a built in logger and the Meteobridge might interface directly. Either way I can't imagine that Boris wouldn't update it to work with whatever Davis comes out with next.

The Meteobridge elegantly allows me to publish everywhere online, including your own website, supports various popular web templates, your own SQL database, FTP database, and even a web cam. The Meteobridge connects via Ethernet or WiFi. It has a nice web interface. It is often updated with fixes an new features.

I don't expect any weather station manufacturers to ever come out with a station hardware/software solution that let's you send your data everywhere. For that you will need to rely on separate software. As long as the hardware provides direct access to the data. Ambient and Davis are the two companies today that allow direct access to the data.

But the Meteobridge software isn't the only elegant solution. You can also run Weather Display or WeeWx software on a Raspberry Pi. Or you can run other software like Cumulus or WUHU and a few others. The point is that there isn't one best way. Every solution has pros and cons. They are all great and have something different in the experience to offer. And best of all there are ways to do more than one of these solutions at the same time.

I'm at 1465 feet, so you are close to 3000?
Thanks for the insight; Time to change my approach and get some current pricing..
What do you recommend for the best value when it comes to wifi/internet connectivity for the VP2? My family would like to be able to view the station from their phones when out and about, and, as long as I can up to WU, that would be sufficient

thanks again for your input!

Check out the iPhone app PWS monitor. It pulls data from your WU feed at three minute intervals.  I have a neighbor with an Ambient 2902 and it displays his UV data but not mine from the Atlas. My guess would be thatís a WU glitch.

It is an Acurite glitch not WU fault. Acurite has a typo in the WU upload packet. A firmware update should easily fix it. I find it rather strange that it is taking them so long to fix it. The problem is a mislabeled variable. I don't recall exactly but it was something like currently it says UVlight= instead of UV= in the packet sent. It is a two second fix.

Why am I not surprised?   #-o

No. I was going by airports, PHX vs TUS. I'm at 2400' and change.
I'll leave connectivity to others much more informed than me.

Was that bad? I'm cracking myself up. That was just too easy. Seriously though, first welcome to the forum. Secondly did you read any posts before you joined and did your first post? You don't have to read everything but at least read a few of the most recent and largest threads.

Anyway. Tell us more about you and why you choose the Atlas. Were you a prior 5-in-1 user or something else, or is this your first station? Are you having any of the problems others are reporting. I won't say what those issues are, you can read about them.

And lastly, that was obviously a joke. There are plenty of happy Atlas owners. But the Atlas, did not come out without some quality control issues, and was certainly not the Davis killer everyone was hoping for after a very very long hyped waiting period of over a year.

No, everyone returned it or are in the process of returning it.

are you a fellow Phoenician?
And, if I recall, you cant get a FARS on a Vue, you must get a VP2, correct?
No, Tucson, and our UV is normally higher here due to our being ~1300' higher and drier air.
Aspiration is only available to the DFARS (daytime only fan) VP2, or the 24hr version which can be powered at night also via batteries should you choose.
