Boas,
Já viram este produto da mesma empresa do meteohub, meteoplug e meteobridge?

Smallest Receiver for Davis® Sensors (... and more)

[http://www]

The smartbedded "Meteostick" is a major achievement to read out Davis® weathers station live data with minimal hardware components. What the USB-stick shaped Meteostick does is receiving RF data from the weather station sensors (US, EU and Australia Models)and providing these to a computer or embedded system like Meteohub/Meteobridge connected via USB in terms of a simple serial data stream. On top of that the Meteostick firmware does compute the weather data burried in the sensor data packets plus adding barometer data to it from a sensor placed in the Meteostick. So you get all the live data from your Davis® stations in the backyard with an extremely unobtrusive piece of hardware.

Metostick allows to read sensor data from Davis® VantageTM Pro2, VantageTM Pro2 Plus and VantageTM Vue sensors. This includes

integrated sensor suites ISSadditional sensors temperature/humidity stationsadditional wind or rain stationsadditional soil/leaf stations

Read-out is done parallel to the Davis consoles, so you have no interfering with any PC solution that uses a data logger connected to the console or Envoy. Meteostick is fully integrated into latest releases of Meteobridge and Meteohub. While Meteobridge only supports one integrated sensor suite, Meteohub (version 4.9x) can read out data from up to 8 stations in parallel. Third party software can be easily adapted to also make use of Meteostick, as the protocol how to interact with Meteostick in terms of a serial connection via USB is fully documented.

Remark: Caused by the form factor RF reach of Meteostick is not as extended as with Davis® Console or Envoy but can be expected fine up to 100 meters. To achieve good RF reception Meteostick should be used in combination with a vertical USB stand (picture on the right) and should be placed away from shielding metals and other RF sources (PC, Router, etc).

For more details, please have a reading of the manual here. Most recent firmware for Meteostick can be found here.

New Feature

[http://www]

Metostick is now able to also read RF data from outdoor sensor unit of Fine Offset HP-100x weather stations, also sold by Ambientweather as WS-100x weather observer or as WiFi weather station from Conrad/ELV as HP-100x. Meteohub/Meteoplug/Meteobridge are able to read data from the outdoor sensor WH24 via the Meteostick in both frequency bands (915 MHz US and 868 MHz EU). Indoor sensor WH25 is not supported. The sensor unit provides the following types of sensor data:wind direction, wind speed, gust speedrain totaltemperature, humiditysolar radiationuv index

No meu caso particular, o que me parece uma grande mais valia é permitir que se continue a utilizar o PC com weatherlink para a descarga e armazenamento dos dados,em simultâneo com esta solução.
Só é pena é o preço e ser não tivemos ainda, o custo adicional do meteohub ou meteobridge....facilmente ultrapassamos os 200€
