Aercus Weather Sleuth

collapit weather has been recording the weather in this particular corner of South Devon since October 2013.

Originally, the weather station used was the highly regarded Davis Vantage Vue but in the short period it was in use the anemometer failed to consistently broadcast the wind speed on two occasions and on the second the service agents advised purchase of a replacement. Research then showed that this is a not uncommon problem and so a different station has been bought as a replacement.

The station in use since 10 October 2016 is an Aercus Weather Sleuth, a far cheaper piece of kit. Although it has had to be replaced a couple of times, the after sales service of the UK distributor, Greenfrog Scientific has been found to be outstanding.

The station now also records solar radiation and the UV index and broadcasts 24/7, not just only when my computer is switched on.

'Live' information, graphs and more historic data since October 2013 may be found on Weather Underground by clicking here.

There are Weather Underground and third party apps for smartphones and tablets on which collapit weather data may be viewed. In all cases you need to enter the station ID which is IUNITEDK4.

Thank you for visiting collapit weather.
