On-site, reliable weather data is important for many businesses and industries.
Weather is many things. It is local, meaning where you are – not what’s happening at the nearest airport. Weather is also fascinating. It’s ever-changing, and it affects everyone.
While nailing a sensor to the side of your company building might be a fast and easy way to go, legitimate wind and temperature measurements cannot be collected this way. Of course, small operations don’t typically have massive budgets for sophisticated weather instruments – so although high-end equipment is incredibly helpful (albeit complex), the costs can be prohibitive. At the other end of the spectrum, department store weather instruments are convenient and cheap but unreliable on a larger scope.
Dyacon weather stations hit the sweet spot: reliable and affordable. Using DyaconLive (a service included with every weather station equipped with a cell phone), you can view specific variables using SMS text message or a web browser. Email alerts can also be set for user-defined parameters.
We can estimate Growing Degree Days in combination with Deficit Vapor Pressure to predict fungus development. Early alarm (above a threshold) of fungus development helps us to improve chemical applications.Control Irrigation Management SACPercy Terrones
We at Papillon Airways, Inc. are very happy with the Dyacon weather station. It has delivered exactly what we were looking for... This has greatly improved our ability to anticipate the need to stop operations.Papillon Grand Canyon HelicoptersBurl Boyd

Preconfigured Private Weather Station
Dyacon weather stations are preconfigured automatic weather stations that fit the bill: they are high quality, of solid construction (made in the USA), and a clear cut above the department store options while still being easy to use.

Dyacon instruments are high-end sensing elements, but they are specifically designed to minimize cost while providing an easy-to-use system. Upon receiving your weather station shipment, you need merely to mount the components and turn on the power to start receiving weather reports through text messages sent to your phone.
The Dyacon Private Weather Station (PWS) is based on a Dyacon solar-powered met station and includes a wind sensor and an air temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure sensor. Rain gauge and data logging are added to round out the instruments. A solar sensor, and temperature probe are optional.
Features such as data logging, Weather Underground connectivity, and custom sensors can all be configured using the LCD menu or through the USB port. No programming languages, development environment, or additional software purchase is required for you to be able to utilize your weather station.
When mounted onto a Dyacon equipment tripod, your weather station can be relocated as necessary. The Dyacon tripod provides a stable base anywhere – out in the field or right next to your facility.
