Walter had purchased the weather station nearly five years ago for use at The Cabin but hadn't been able to properly install it until this year. The unit had to be reconfigured with new electronic components in order to make it work with current Verizon wireless standards as well as to make it configurable via Bluetooth.
This professional-grade instrument is now recording wind direction, wind speed, outside temperature, barometric pressure, and rain fall levels. Every hour it sends a new batch of meteorological data from East Haven Mountain to the cloud, providing timely and accurate weather conditions and extended forecasts at any time and from anywhere. Given how quickly weather can change in the mountains, this information is vital for planning safer hikes to and from The Cabin.
Check it out yourself with the free smartphone app by searching for and installing WeatherLink from Davis Instruments on Apple's App Store or Google Play. You can also check it out from any PC at www.weatherlink.com.
Both the app and website require you to create your own free personal account. Then simply search for the weather station named "CABIN" and scroll down the menu to select the one named "East Haven, VT, USA" .
Make it a favorite in the app and you'll be able to see the data quickly and easily at any time.
Our thanks to Walter for this gift and for a great day together of problem solving and succeeding in implementing a wonderful tool for The Cabin!
