This is a complete internet-based GPRS solar powered weather station. Place this unit anywhere in the world where there is GSM cellphone coverage and it will report real time data through to this web site (or your web site) via the Internet. The system reports at least every 60 minutes - immediately for alarms and every minute during a frost event. It uses GPRS and data compression to minimise monthly cell phone charges.

It has sensors for temperature (wired and wireless), rainfall, wind speed and direction, soil moisture, leaf wetness, humidity (used for calculating dew point temperature) and solar radiation (used to calculate evapotranspiration).

Text messages, voice messages or emails can be sent when alarm levels are exceeded (e.g., frost alarm, high temperature alarm, high rainfall, high wind).

New Graphing Software
We have released new software for our graphs that uses a format called Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG). This adds new functions to the way you can view the data and also means the graphs will look much sharper on smartphones and tablets. If you need help with the new functions click on the Graph Help tab above the graphs to watch a two minute tutorial video.

If you have an old web browser like Internet Explorer 8 or earlier you will not be able to use the new graphs and will instead be directed to the old graphs. Please consider updating to a newer browser. You can click here to download Google Chrome for free and take full advantage of the improvements.

Acclima TDT Soil Sensor
A new soil moisture probe is now available - the Acclima TDT digital soil sensor. This sensor is especially good for dairy farms as it compensates for the effects of fertiliser and effluent.
