Guys attached is a few links to the Davis Instruments website, so we can all get eyes on the product i've been mentioning. This is slight upgrade from the EnvironMonitor Cellular bundle, as i believe buying separate allows us to get Barometric pressure data as well.
Here's a link about how data is viewed. Apparently it can be uploaded to a 3rd party as well, such as WeatherUnderground
Feel free to reach out with any additional questions, and we can always request more information from Davis Instruments.
Here's a cheaper option that's about 1/3 the cost, but we'd be on our own for finding a SIM card to transmit the data. Seems like its considerably less rugged than the Davis Instruments. A site I came across even referred Davis as "the ones to beat" when it came to weather systems.
Sean...thanks much. From what you said in the meeting, my interest was peaked. I'll take a good look thru the links in a couple of days but, just like fishing & boating equipment, I stick with:
"Buy good and buy once."
From Jojo after some deciphering:
I talked to my friend, a supervisor in the Town of Tonawanda Highway Dept. As a boater, he is on board with our weather station proposal for foot of Sheridan ramp.
He said he will try to influence the powers that be to approve the station, but ultimately it is not his decision.
I told him we might need access to power and that the station's information would be made available to the public.
Sean, if I remember correctly the solar option is the double the price? Also I believe we discussed a webcam. Would you be able to put together a short proposal to pass along to my friend listing the units capabilities, requirements and how the public would be able access the station's information? Thanks.
Sean...with other sign projects that I've seen done, can you also please attach a sketch (hand drawn is OK) of how it will be fastened to the pole, height above ground, etc? I'm sure the liability issue will also be discussed, as it usually is, so as to preclude anyone getting injured.
2. Maintenance is always an issue with every project I've reviewed. That doesn't mean we would have to fix it ourselves; just know who to contact with appropriate contact numbers.
3. If you can't figure out what Jojo means when he writes, it would help to get a Schmozetta Stone to decipher.
