    Default Weather Monitoring System

    Folks - I'm considering buying an automated system that monitors weather and feeds back data to ACP.

    I would prefer an off-the-shelf configuration rather than a DIY job. I can't solder and my software writing skills are as good as my soldering

    I would like the system to be able to monitor wind, moisture (rain, snow etc), temperature/humidity and cloud cover. It will then interact with ACP and then take appropriate action (i.e. close a dome/roof or even prevent it opening etc).

    The two systems I've seen on the net and seem to be used to a greater/lesser extent are the Boltwood II sensor and Foster Systems stuff (www.fostersystems.com/amc101m.html)

    Any thoughts, experiences, comments, feedback would be appreciated.

    Cheers
    Dave

    I have an AAG Cloud Sensor I am happy with http://www.optcorp.com/product.aspx?pid=12985

    Perhaps I went a little overboard, but I got a Davis Vantage Pro+ Weather Station.

    AAG has free software that consolidates inputs from both sources then sends a safe/unsafe to ACP.
