The WeatherHawk weather station is designed for easy installation and use by consumers, educators, students, and resource managers. WeatherHawk is ideal for applications where ease of installation and use are key factors. WeatherHawk is preprogrammed to provide simple meteorological data, including the complex calculation of ETo (evapotranspiration) typically used for landscape and crop management. WeatherHawk also conforms to many existing home automation protocols.

The WeatherHawk weather station uses Internet-compatible Virtual WeatherStation software. It is supplied fully assembled. The assembly includes meteorological sensors, and a protective case that houses the on-board microprocessor, rechargeable battery pack and spread spectrum radio transceiver. The battery is recharged via AC power or a solar panel. The WeatherHawk weather station and solar panel are easily attached to a 1¼" to 2" O.D. pole (optional or user-supplied).

The WeatherHawk on-board microprocessor automatically measures the sensors, then stores the data in an on-board data logger before transmitting the data to a user-supplied remote PC. A spread spectrum radio is supplied to connect to the PC and receive transmissions from the WeatherHawk weather station. With typical line-of-sight conditions the WeatherHawk spread spectrum radio can transmit over distances of up to one-half a mile.  Optional WeatherHawk accessories can increase the wireless transmission range up to 7 miles (please inquire).


User installation is as simple as 1-2-3-4:

  1. Remove the WeatherHawk from the shipping box (no assembly required).
  2. Install the WeatherHawk and solar panel on the user-supplied pole.
  3. Attach the RF400 Spread Spectrum Radio to a serial port on the usersupplied Host PC.
  4. Install Virtual Weather Software and turn on the WeatherHawk weather station switch.


Within minutes, a typical user can begin monitoring weather information directly on the Host PC, and remotely over the Internet.
