Welcome to the Dream Machine area!
« on: November 10, 2011, 10:54:49 AM »
I made this area for discussions and updates for WxTech's Dream Machine weather station. It's a WxForum-unique project and deserved it's own area.

I also moved the original thread here.

Thanks Chris.  This board title inspires me to go to work on the Dream Machine.  I'm just the Instigator.  Others please work on this idea also.  I love competition.  You can go in any direction and end with a Dream Machine.  I'm using an Arduino Uno as the processor data logger and Internet interface.
I will work on a wireless version that indicates only temperature and rainfall.  Other functions can be added later.

You can find just about anything your looking for here at great prices. I like what your doing. Hopefully I can become a frequent customer if you sell any of your items.

An example of what I'm looking for, a station that can measure temperature humidity and sunlight in a future veggie garden I don't want to relocate my VP2 ISS and the VP2's solar sensor needs the best exposure I need something else to setup in the garden to individually measure those parameters. and if possible it can be expanded with soil moisture soil temperature and leaf wetness sensors. Something like this.
I live in an apartment and for the moment am not a home weather watcher.

I am a storm chaser.
