Purchased a Tempest weather station for our business, which is short term rental management. We wanted to offer to our clients local weather, especially during our winter season. Tempest has decent software, but it’s not all that user friendly in terms of availability from a Word Press site. I wondered why they did not off it and now I know, they point their clients to this plug-in.
I installed Weather station plug-in and within a few hours, had it up and running. It took me a bit to figure out how to configure it. In terms of how it worked, it exceeded my expectations. There are so may ways to display real time data, historical data, and calculated data values. This first pass was just to get an idea of how it works, but I can see myself building this out more over time.
The result is excellent and it looks good on a cell phone.
25 years ago, I installed over 150 weather stations worldwide at industrial sites with full data acquisition for $1000’s of dollars. What the Tempest provides in conjuction with this software is every bit as good as those towers. I am speaking from a personal acquisition, not sure how the Tempest would hold up on the industrial environments of chemical plants. The Tempest being solid state with solar charging is a bonus to, set it up and forget about it. Needless to say, I’m excited about having this plug-in to work with and evolve over time.
