If you have always wanted to monitor certain parameters of your property or home and love to keep an eye on the weather, consider the WS-8480 Smart WiFi Weather Station.  The aspirated fan makes this station ideal for weather enthusiasts in hot weather climates where temperature accuracy is paramount.

The weather station measures wind speed, wind direction, rainfall, outdoor temperature and humidity, solar radiation, and UV, while the console measures temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure. The console also displays Feel Like temperature, moon phase, and a barometric pressure-based forecast.

Add up to 7 thermo-hygrometers, floating pool and spa sensors, soil moisture sensors, and temperature sensors to track and monitor conditions in and around your home.

The Sensor Array

The outdoor sensor array is solar-powered and charges a super capacitor. Back-up batteries provide power at night and extended periods of darkness. The projected battery life is 2-3 years with high-quality lithium or alkaline batteries.

The Indoor/Outdoor Thermo-Hygrometer

The WS-8480 also includes an indoor sensor that monitors temperature and humidity anywhere inside or outside your home. The TX-3110B wireless outdoor thermo-hygrometer passes data through to your WS-8480 console. It will support both imperial and metric units of measure.
