Harvest    Solway
SID:1000 HSN:3300, 10000, 10078 USER:Guest LAST DATA: -

This is a complete internet-based 2G/3G (IoT) solar powered weather station. Place this unit anywhere in the world where there is 2G or 3G 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 10 minutes - immediately for alarms and every minute during a frost event.

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 potential evapotranspiration).

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