It is a feature of some of the ECOWITT weather stations (previously known as Fine Offset), for example I noticed it in the following advert (but they are not as easy to buy in Europe). Also beware that the specific reference to "lightning" might be a "mis-print" because that list does not include "Solar" data which IS supported. :

You should find some recent relevant discussion by searching this forum for "ECOWITT LIGHTNING".

The following link to another forum is not recent (2017) but you might also find some relevant information there:
