What do I need...?
« on: December 16, 2017, 02:41:27 PM »
Looking to get a Vantage Vue in the very near future after my LaCrosse 2813 crapped out after 6 years. The most important things to me are streaming online (I'm currently doing WU, CWOP, PWS, AWEKAS, and WeatherBug-sorta). Another must have is rapid fire updates to WU, the more frequent, the better. What are the basics I need to accomplish this? I know I need a logger. Will probably get Bellfry's. I need an Envoy if I want to place the console elsewhere than connected to the computer? And I could use Cumulus for uploading/rapid fire.

An IP logger would work best if the PC is not near the console.

Davis's own would need to be wired, but Belfryboy's been working on his own Wifi IP logger, which might suit you to a tee.

Have a look in this thread.

A raspi running weewx would be a small and cheap platform but you'll need the Davis or aftermarket logger and a serial to usb adaptor probably.
