Vantage Vue

Post by pshe12 » Thu 29 Aug 2019 10:56 am

Hi,

I still have a Vantage Vue weather station, however the console and PC and cables (i.e. all the bits indoors) were all lost in a house fire.

I am wondering if there is any way to receive the data from the external weather station and transfer it to the laptop using Cumulus without having to buy a new console?

Although we were insured, we lost everything and I can't really justify the expense of a new console at present so looking to see if there are any alternatives.

Thanks

That is so unfortunate for your loss and wish you the best in getting your lifes and home back in order.

Unfortunately a console and logger, or equivalent, is needed for Cumulus and any other device to receive and record the data.

Good luck,
Paul

Thanks - I thought it would be the case but you don't know for sure until you ask

Davis sell a box called "WeatherLink Live" which seems to do just what you ask for - connects to the sensors, sends data to any device on your LAN as well as direct to Weatherlink.com
See https://www.davisinstruments.com/produc ... _Sheet.pdf

The price is quoted as $250, but I suppose that's less than a console [without sensors] + Logger. But there is less functionality. Do you ever look at the console?

BelfryBoy's logger connects to your computer by USB rather than WiFi, but does save some cash.

If the insurance is paying, I think l I'd claim for console + logger + sensor suite (just to make sure there isn't a compatibility issue wink wink)

But be careful: Weatherlink Live (WLL) does not - currently at least - work with Cumulus(MX). Any software has to contain routines to listen for the UDP broadcasts of wind/rain data from WLL and to poll it at intervals for the other live data.

A Vue console fitted with the WiFi Logger is another and reasonably cost-effective solution.
