21488Re: [wuhu_software_group] I did it
- Dec 12, 2012Congrats! I made that switch 6 years ago and have not been disappointed. Just beware, there are a lot of little additional sensors you can put on the unit and you’ll want to fill up the connector bank. I just got a second console so that I know what the weather is doing without having to go downstairs to the main one, and the powered heat shield a month or so ago.It is not very hard to set up at all. It will take a few minutes to sync the console to the unit, especially if they are not within a few feet of one another. Mine are probably 75 feet apart, and go all of the way through the house so walls and concrete separate them. I think that the main issue I had was that the WUHU interface was COM7 (for USB), which surprised me when I set it up. That may have changed. I don’t run Heavy Weather, just WUHU. I have had one issue since starting. The batteries corroded in the main console. I was fortunate to have caught it and it cleaned up fine.Chris
A few weeks ago I was having issues with my OS WMR968 rain gauge. It wouldn't report anything but I thought I fixed it.
I went out of town last week and it rained a bunch but my station didn't report anything.
With that annoyance I decided it was time.
I bought a Davis Vantage Pro 2 with Serial Weatherlink. With shipping it was a tad over $500.
I never thought I would spend that kind of money but I've never been extremely happy with the coarse resolution of my pressure readings. Here's my station:
And here's a Davis about a mile from me.
I think with what I bought I should be able to basically set it up and change WUHU to connect to it and I should be done. Am I right?
