Considering Davis Vantage Vue, questions about PC s/w and embed code

(1/2) > >>

GaryGo:
I am interested in Davis Vantage Vue with WeatherLink Console, to be pole-mounted in back yard of a suburban residential property in upstate NY, USA. I plan to view current conditions on the console and phone. I also wish to use "embed" code in an iframe on my web site. I plan to use the weatherlink.com Basic (free) plan. A few things are not clear to me, thanks for any help.

1 - Does the PC software run all the time on the PC, or is the s/w just for station setup and data viewing on the PC? I mean, once my station is set up, and if I am using the WeatherLink console and/or web page embed code, does my home PC need to be running at all as long as the wi-fi is up?

2 - Does the WeatherLink console use wi-fi?

3 - Does embed code on a web page work with the Basic (free) plan on weatherlink.com?

4 - Does the embed code on a web page query the station in real-time, or does the station have to upload data for the embed code to access? I don't require true real time on the web page; if it's within a minute, that's ok.

5 - Does the embed code on a web page display any browser ads or Davis branding, or just the weather station data?

6 - Is a Pro/Pro+ plan required to use the software API (for current conditions)?

WeatherLink Console? You mean #6313?

1. Which PC software are you referring to?
2. Yes

Mattk:

I don't know what PC software. The PC software that is required for #6242. If there is no such PC software, then the question is irrelevant, thanks.

#6242, "Vantage Vue with WeatherLink Console".

1. Seems to be no PC or logger required if you use the new Console.  The console reads the RF from the sensors and you can choose to feed the Davis servers if you want.  Manual is at https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0515/5992/3873/files/7395.402_F_WeatherLink_Console_Guide.pdf?v=1701478010 (linked from Davis's site).  Console details at https://www.scientificsales.com/6313-Davis-WeatherLink-Console-p/6313.htm

2. yes 2.4GHz only if I remember correctly

(wow - it's 200 bucks cheaper at scientificsales than at Davis. $478 for Vue+Console, $686 for VP2+Console.  Same at scaledinstruments)
