no problem most changes are reference to air quality.

side note some really usefull control features were released today for the weatherflow hardware control app by weatherflow hopefully the test period for the app will over by the time you get yours they are really working hard and some of the newer features added today is all based on ideas forwarded by field testers over the last few months . all i can say the third unit ive installed is working flawlessly .



have a nice upcoming weekend...brian



I have been using AQI data from a Purple air unit that is a good distance from me, so its not that accurate. Given the choice I would show the Moonphase instead.

I am looking forward to receiving the Weather Flow units. I hope to run them side by side with my Davis - posting the data via the upper panels of your template.

Have a great weekend!

Curiosity question: What's the RF output power and thus 'nominal' operating range?

cabud,

The Fine offset weather stations like a WH-2310, (mine is Excelvan) calculate UV/light and is very accurate. The station is very affordable as well. If you get it report back and I'll give you some pointers on it, or just look in Ambient weather folder on this site, as I wrote about it several times in there.

Thanks for the recommendation. I am a mechanical and electrical engineer, and have qualms about the cheap units....doesn't mean the qualms are justified. I have been researching these for several years now.

We have a nearly constant very light breeze, I want something that will register that without having to lube it ar baby it. Do these cheap WS register very light breeze ?

I have never lubed mine, and it is the most sensitive anemometer I have used, and I have used Oregon Scientific, Acurite, and the wh-2310. Also look at the WH-3080 station if you want to upload to the internet sites. It works with Cumulus software, the WH-2310 works with meteobridge for sure. I do not like the software that comes with the stations themselves.

hello

if you select no for both air quality options then no air quality features are displayed or linked too.

OK. That is what I thought. I like the version that I am presently using - it shows more data. It can show the AQI via the Current Conditions link and the Moonphase Panel.

Thanks for the quick response.

Other Weather Station Hardware / Re: Solar radiation sensor, why and what

I was just quoting SLOweather and have no knowledge or experience as yet. 

I pride my lawn (1/2 Ac) and try to keep it green during the summer.  And during the dry summer months have been using a timer for watering 3 hours each morning and another 3 hours late afternoon which covers about 20% of the lawn each day (I manually change the sprinkler hoses twice a day) but have been considering getting a built-in sprinkler system.  Fortunately I don't use metered water for watering as we have fairly good ground water supply and use my own well - electricity cost is another thing!

Enjoy,
Paul

With the solar sensor, the console will calculate evapotranspiration (ET), or how much water evaporates from the soil, and how much is transpired by grass. With that number, especially summed over a week, it's easy to make informed watering decisions.

cabud, if you are considering a Davis VP2 and are considering the solar and uv sensors I *strongly* recommend going ahead with the VP2+ that includes these two sensors.  You will never find the sensors as inexpensive as you will find them in the VP2+.  Adding them later *is definitely* more expensive. 

As you may have seen on another thread, after 10 years I have decided to replace my VP2 ISS and have ordered the VP2 Plus w/24FARS ISS.  Looking forward to having it working, and do some sunshine comparison to my B-L sunrecorder and see if it will help my lawn watering schedule.

Paul, thanks for the practical use scenario, I am mostly interested in that exact unit, but need to understand the value before spending the cash. Can you explain how you would use the sun sensors for helping with the watering schedule? Wouldn't it also be useful to have soil temp and moisture sensors? I am mostly interested in this to augment our large vegetable gardens. Our lawn is another story, nothing to look at there  :?
