Davis Weather Station

Davis Vantage 6250 Wireless Weather Station

The 6250 Vantage Vue Wireless Weather Station is a self-contained, easy-to-install device that provides accurate and dependable weather monitoring. The Vantage Vue includes a sleek yet rugged outdoor Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) and a robust console designed to provide the weather data you need for home use, educational purposes, boating, and more. The ISS sets up in minutes and begins transmitting data wirelessly to your console from anywhere within a 1,000-foot range in your home, school, or company. Every 2.5 seconds, the ISS updates the easy-to-read LCD screen on your console. Current weather conditions, including the indoor and outdoor temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, wind speed and direction, dew point, and rainfall, are constantly updated. The user-friendly console has an LCD 3 by 4.375″ backlit screen and a glow-in-the-dark keyboard with different views and features, including weather forecasting, moon and sunset times, weather patterns, alarms and much more.

Pros

It’s the sensor’s most extended ring to the receiver, in my opinion. I’ve got a decent 50 feet from the 15 foot off the ground on the post to the receiver in my mobile home, and it works well.

With a 3 second delay, the Davis is incredibly accurate. However, it will function perfectly up to a height of 300 feet. I’ve walked about 100 feet across the yard with it a couple of times. To see if it would operate in the range listed on the package. Yeah, it certainly does. The rain gauge is accurate, and the Anemometer and the wind vane perform admirably. They are highly reliable up to a 3-second delay. When the fan is turned on, the temperature sensor performs admirably. It’s also well worth your money.

Cons

The power supply that comes with as well as.  It also keeps the TX running in the console. Every four months, it will perish. As a result, have a few extra batteries on hand. You’ll have to reset both the console and the receiver. However, it is well worth the money you spend.

Wireless Weather Station Davis Instruments 6152 Vantage Pro2  

This is the top-of-the-line weather station if you can afford it. It’s important to note that this system is not the most user-friendly. The console is clearly out of date, and using it can be intimidating or confusing for the average person. However, once you become acquainted with it, you will swear by it. I’m on my second one now, and I have two consoles in my house powered by the same sensor suite, which also includes the LAN data logger that uploads to Davis Weather link and Weather Underground. I have to say, the new rain collector with the screen inside and bird spikes is a world away from the old one, which was constantly clogged with pine needles and bird droppings. Davis hit the ball out of the park with that update. In general, you won’t find a weather station that is more well-built or planned. Set it up, then step back and enjoy the ride. Except for replacing the 3v batteries in the wireless sensors every few years, this is a hands-off, maintenance-free setup. It was well worth the money.

Davis 6153 Wireless Weather station

For nearly 40 years, I’ve relied on aviation and research weather stations in my work. The Vantage Pro2 is well-built and engineered. It compares favorably to far more expensive “professional” instruments. So far, it has fulfilled all of my expectations. All required for installation was included in the package, except the mounting pole and backup batteries for the base station. The base station is straightforward to read and run. Despite the presence of many walls, wireless communication has proven to be effective.
