Weather stations

There are more than 40 000 weather stations over the world , professional and amateur. The combined data from the stations with the satellite images are used by meteorologists for years, to interpret the weather conditions and weather forecasting. A few years ago, not everyone could afford to buy the station, because the prices were too high. A lot of offers of many manufacturers and distributors have appeared on the market along with the development of the technology, like the ones for a few pounds that measure temperature, humidity and receive weather data from the Internet to professional ones from Davis , worth several thousand pounds. To monitor the weather in your place you just need a few basic stations with external sensors that measure wind speed and direction, pressure, temperature, humidity and produce mini weather forecast. Weather stations have a very wide range of applications such as agriculture , construction, tourism, etc
. The system ActiveWeather provides as well the possibility to monitor conditions in the house, such as temperature and humidity. Below you will find a few rules of installation and location of the station.

2. A good place for the station is a garden with a safe place to install the device.
