This weekend we’ve installed my dad’s new weather station. What’s left is to convince him to connect the receiver to a Raspberry Pi for better data logging… 😉
Weather Station

We added a wire to stabilize the sender/solar cell. We still have to make some improvements: replace the plastic zip ties with proper clamps for example.

The device was bought at Conrad Electronic (#672861) but its available from various vendors under different names and brands. This was actually one of the reasons for buying this weather station – its wide availability already led to various “hacks” and the stations’ data format/protocol is known.

So now I’m thinking about buying a second receiver (in China) to have one next to the Computer and one in the living room. Does anyone know which ones are compatible? I’m a bit overwhelmed by the number of similar looking stations…

Dad’s Weather Station is up and running…
