Very silent out here. What is going on?
« on: June 19, 2021, 05:09:50 AM »
Hi all,

I am a bit concerned about what is going on with Barani. At least when it comes to the weatherstations that are discussed here. First of all in the second half of last year several people noted they thought some things could be made better. Especially interfacing with the station and uploading to more sites than  just wunderground. The answer was that they were working on it and it should be finished at the start of 2021. So this was already later than expected. It was also said that the team of Jan  was pretty small, but also enthusiastic so we should give them some time. Which is understandable.

But now it is 6 months later and nothing. It has become quiet here which is pretty strange, to me. since these stations seem to measure with WMO precision and frequency at a very affordable price. Or is it?

I wanted to order one (well, next month or so) and looked if anything has changed. I found that all stations were sold out and next shipping date.....april 2021 (?). Now this makes me weary. It almost seems as if there is something wrong, when  websites are no longer updated on very crucial matters (like shipping goods).

I already wrote Jan Barani a message askking him what is going on and a tip to be clear about this on the site if there is a good explanation. I hope all is well, we need this competition and we need Barani to especially make their stations more Plug and play. Not just setting it up in  the field and have datatransfers, but Plug and play when it comes to uploading to known networks (wunderground, wow etc).

I'll await his answer but wonder if Mauro (long time no see) or others have some inside information? Thx.

Kind regards,

j.

Hello Jorginho,

there's nothing wrong with Barani, you can be sure ;)

As you told, is a very little company, and they do not want to consider some kind of commercial cooperation only to obtain a sustain.
Every step needs a lot of time when you want to make all by yourself, and this is the price to pay.

We are making some tests on the camouflaged versions of Meteoshield Pro and Meteohelix, we are working on the new Meteorain, and also to the new Meteogarden web interface and, also, to the new MeteoAG integrated agrometeorological system

You can be sure that I will forward your comments to Jan Barani before this evening, and I promise to update more often this topic, sorry but also my job is absolutely higher than past months

Mauro

Busy too. The problems are as I expected related to Corona, chip availability etc. I told them I think it would be nice to correct the dates (next shipment april 2021...it was june already) because that seems odd and it is what you see when companies go bankrupt...Fortunately, this is not the case here. Just a case of bad luck with the pandemic.

Thx for replying!
