DIY Weather Station

  • The latest innovation in this area is a weather station designed by the innovative Australian company Holman Industries
  • The iweather system provides intelligent environmental data that allows you to better manage your garden and plan your day
  • It assists with recording rain fall, wind direction, wind speed as well as temperature and humidity measurements
  • The system utilises an easy to construct wireless weather vane, which relays to the main unit that provides digital read reporting from the comfort of your living room
  • Once you've bought the system, you need to place the mast with the sensors in a prominent open position
  • This is one of the most critical aspects of the system, if the positioning is clear of trees and building shadows your reports will be absolutely accurate
  • The system will report rainfall as a result of the rain sensor that's located on the main bracket
  • The wind speed and direction sensors are positioned to capture all extremes without interference
