Do I need to plug in the ProWeatherStation?

The connection between the sensor array and controller is wireless. Indoor console can also be plugged into an AC outlet using the Optional AC Adaptor(Part #: TP2700WC-AC Adaptor)

Can I publish my ProWeatherStation data online?

  • The TP2700WC ProWeatherStation data can be published online using the WeatherSmart software. WeatherSmart allows publishing of real time data on Weather Underground . Weather underground supports rapid fire real time data update.
  • The Weathersmart also supports uploads to Weatherbug and Weathercloud.

My rain gauge has frozen?

  • The rain gauge may freeze up in winter. The ice/snow will not damage the rain gauge and it will start working again after it thaws.

The remote sensor is not transmitting to the display console?

  • Remove the batteries from the transmitter and display. Power up the transmitter with new batteries. Wait 10 minutes then power up display. Do not press any buttons during the 1 minute power up time. You should then have outdoor readings after 3-5minutes.

The rain gauge stopped recording rain?

Open up the rain gauge housing by un-snapping the cover. Check inside to make sure there is nothing obstructing the movement of the mechanism. It is fairly common for insects to nest inside.

How far can the controller be from the sensor array?

  • The ProWeatherStation has a transmit range of 300 feet but is dependent on what obstructions the signal has to travel through. The more line-of-sight the path, the further you can go(Maximum of up to 300 feet).

Can I store data on my computer?

  • The ProWeatherStation stores 4080 data sets in its memory. The sample rate can be set by the user with 16 sec. intervals as a minimum. When memory on the device gets full, you need to download the data to the computer or else the display console will overwrite the data, overwriting the oldest data first. Downloading is done automatically when the unit is attached to the computer through the USB and the WeatherSmart software is started. The amount of data you can store on the computer is unlimited. The WeatherSmart software can display the data in various graphs or it can be exported to Excel if desired for analysis.

Do I need a computer to use the ProWeatherStation?

  • A computer is not needed to use the ProWeatherStation for monitoring weather or setting alarms. If you desire to do any data logging for long term tracking of weather trends then a computer with a USB port is needed in order to download the base station memory when it gets filled up. You only need to connect to the computer to setup and when the memory gets full. For all other times the controller can be mounted to a wall in another room or sitting on a desk or table.

Can I shorten or extend the sensor cables?

  • Yes, you can shorten the cables but we recommend just using the cable ties that come with the system for proper cable management. The cables can be extended up to 50'.
    NOTE: If any cables are modified we will not be able to accept any returns for warranty.
