The Davis Instruments Wireless Weather Envoy allows you to receive and store data from a Vantage Pro2 or Vantage Vue integrated sensor suite and post it to your computer, no console required. The 6316 Wireless Weather Envoy is used in conjunction with either a USB or Serial WeatherLink data-logger that allows you to collect and store data from the outdoor sensors. You can then download the data to your computer at your convenience,then use the Davis WeatherLink software that is available for download via your free WeatherLink account at www.weatherlink.com for detailed analysis, graphing, or export the data to most popular spreadsheet, database, and word processing programs. Even create your own webpage. This setup will also allow you to view current conditions, real time on your PC.
It includes its own barometer, inside temperature, humidity sensors and AC power adapter. The 6614 Solar Power Kit can be used for outdoor applications that do not have AC power available.
