Useful in countless situations, this wireless weather station provides remote access to key weather indicators at any time via the internet. A user can obtain information on Wind Speed, Wind Direction, Air Temperature, Relative Humidity, Solar Radiation, Barometric Pressure and Rainfall from "their" WeatherHawk - a handy edition to the beach house.
A recently announced distribution and technical support Agreement for Australia between WeatherHawk and Campbell Scientific Australia (CSA) will see the station available in the region.
Weather sensors are fully installed and ready for use and the "out of the box" device takes only minutes to set-up - the unit is simply placed on a pole, or tripod and the Virtual Weather Software installed on a personal computer. Access via the dedicated site is of course available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
In addition to the seven basic weather parameters, WeatherHawk can provide Heat Index, Dew Point, Wind Chill and even ETo (evapotranspiration) information.
