A Davis weather station is a high-quality device for monitoring the weather. Developed by Davis Instruments in the San Francisco Bay Area, Davis products are in use around the world. Homeowners, universities, government agencies, and farmers across the country use their weather stations.

There are many models of Davis weather station available. Some, like the Perception II, are comparatively straightforward stations measuring temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure, without the aid of a remote sensor. These tiny devices require next to no installation or set-up time, and are great for monitoring the air in climate-dependent areas such as a wine cellar.

Other models, such as their popular Vantage Pro or Vantage Pro Plus models, require a quick installation for both the inside and the outside components. The weather station itself is best inside your home, and will mount quickly to any wall. The sensor suite goes outside, where it can accurately measure all sorts of meteorological data. Housed inside a radiation shield, the temperature and humidity sensors are now more accurate then ever.

Installing a Davis Weather Station

Many Davis weather products are compatible with a number of different installation options and additional sensors or displays. Also available are products like the Wireless Weather Envoy, a computer accessory that allows your PC to receive data from any specialized sensor suite, without the need for a separate console. Full compatibility charts for products such as the Wireless Weather Envoy are available readily online.
