Weather Station

The Club are going to buy a weather station and link to web, what do people think of Vantage Vue with IP Data Logger.

We going to make it available online for ALL to see. Any advice welcome.

regards

Scott

I've got the vantage vue 2 and it is really good. I also have it connected to my pc and when I remember to fire it up it sends updates to my website www.erinlad.co.uk automatically

You need the data logger for this to work, and you have two choices. Either the USB data logger which connects to your pc and uses the pc to do the ftp transfer to your website or a standalone ethernet data logger which connects direct to your router and updates your website itself. The latter option is the better as you don't need a pc to be up and running to keep the updates flowing. The downside is that it is more expensive. When I bought mine the only option available was the USB version which means my website only gets updated if I leave my pc on all the time. You also need the pc software which is called weatherview I think.

Make sure it's not pointed at their faces anyway. I did this at work once and eventually I got a phonecall...

Will keep this on mind, was under impression only an issue if you are recording the images and not just streaming, I will prob limit to a 30 sec refresh anyways.

Mine was about 8fps, user controllable, 330 degree pan and tilt with a 26x zoom. Naughty but nice while it lasted. The fact that I hosted it on my website may have been the issue
