I'm considering the Vantage Vue but am concerned about the charging of the ISS battery during the winter months. Living in an Alaskan coastal rainforest we have limited daylight during a big chunk of the year. Does the wired VP2 have power over Ethernet or is this something I should even be concerned about. Thanks for any comments.
The cabled VP2 has a cable (something like telephone wire) running from the inside console to the outside unit. That cable carries power to the outside unit, and brings the signals inside. It's not POE.
You might also be interested in heating the rain gauge - that requires another cable.
