Support for solar and UV sensors.
« on: November 29, 2011, 01:10:28 AM »
Well this item has been discussed a while back. Figured I'd post a support discussion about adding UV and solar to the sensor suit. Maybe a 6 N 1 or 7 N 1. This may require a little extra engineering to the sensor module. Or maybe offer solar and/or UV as an extra like Davis does on their non-Plus Vantage Pro2 stations. Today I glanced at Acu-rite's large line of stations. Now I think it's time to move up and offer something more.

If it could be done without significantly raising the price point, it would be interesting to record both if for no other reason than trying to forecast cooling/heating costs.  I don't know if I'd pay more than another $20 for the feature, though.....
