This is my latest gear setup. My Vantage Pro2 console is mounted in a different location but links via IP. The weather computer is running Weather Display, Cumulus and Weather Data Transfer Utility for the Envoy8x. The Iomega iConnect on the right runs Meteohub and drives www.portsaintlucie.com. Weather Display is driving www.pslwx.com. I access the computer through VNC from other areas since I am rarely in the house.

Nice idea with the washing hanger type thing to let the laptop breath so it doesn't over heat! ;) Nice room! :D

I would give up all these toys if a special lady would move in and tell me that I can't have all this clutter.

Nah, keep the clutter. It's cheaper doesn't answer back.. I'd still have all my clutter is a special lady hadn't of moved in, sigh ;) :lol:

My weather room consists of a desk and chair... along with my trusty binder with all my user names, passwords, and notes for everything.  Webcam against the window at the top right, and my WD hard drive backups on the shelf.  I wish I had more room but that is taken up for other work.

I don't ever sit in the room where my weather equipment is. That's why I built a website.

I'm with you.  Alll my stuff is in a nook in the hallway.

Same here.  My netbook, weather radio and console set on an old flower stand in the bedroom.   :mrgreen:  I VNC into it with my laptop when I change anything and use virtual VP to run the software on the second laptop if I want to monitor the conditions direct.  Most of the time though  just look at the website or use the WeatherLink app on my iPod Touch.

This is my "weather wall" which is directly beside my recliner in the living room. As a country boy what would you expect? From my recliner I can watch my HD flatscreen and view weather data all at the same time!  :lol:

Well here is my modest setup, started some of this over twenty years ago, first receiving NOAA weather satellites directly using a receiver built from a kit, housed inside an aluminium camera case, complete with a 25 foot mast for use in the field.  Now have everything on the desk, and the mast etc setup outside.



This interest is addictive, can be expensive, but above all.....lots of fun.....and you learn at the same time, a great past time for young and old, and the weather is constantly changing.

Nice :-)

Just one question though - do you keep all this on 24/7? And if so, what is the energy consumption of all the screens and devices? :D

Hi

Yes, the power bill is low because I use solar heater for hot water and the house only works when I demmand for something, the screens are ''off'' in stand by mode almost all the time and just woke up when I arrive in the chair, with that way of use the entire house are making:



The solar water heater were introduced in september...

Nice, though Im just curious:
- what were the initial costs to set up the solar heater (price for heater, installation etc.)
- what is the lifetime of the solar panel

Hi

Around 1200 / 1500$ and the company says probably 30 years... \:D/ \:D/ \:D/
or 4.60$ peer month if you divide total cost / lifetime.

OK, so it looks like you will eventually save some money :D Though I would not be so optimistic, these panels usually last more like 15 years

Thats why I didn´t get the panels, only vacuum tubes...this new kind of heater generation is amazing, check this out:


Even with snow and down temperatures you can generate hot water enough to use at home... \:D/

The Davis console and associated streaming hardware is hidden in the basement.  I use an old Nexus 10 Tablet running "Weather Station (Beta) for Android.  It sits in a prominent spot in the kitchen and co-located with Google Home Max and Charging Station.  My wife appreciates the look - no ugly hardware in her kitchen!

Awesome setup, some questions: Can I use this app on android 4.4? where can I get it? I have an old samsung tablet over here, are u using this 24/7 plugged in the receptacle? does it overheat or any problem?

Search the Play Store for "Weather Station" by Dromosys.  My Nexus 10 has 5.1.1 so can't say if it works with 4.4, but just try it.  I removed all other apps from the Nexus 10, keep it plugged in and reduce brightness to 50% or so.  It runs pretty reliable, no thermal issues, but sometimes need to restart the App.
