See real-time data from your Weather Station on Control4 !
Logan, UT, USA - September 2011
WeatherHawk produces award winning, easy to use and easy to install weather stations for the residential and professional markets. Unlike internet based weather data, the WeatherHawk weather stations provide accurate localised data which give
you a true picture of the weather situation where you are.
The WeatherHawk Series 500 Weather Stations can be integrated with Control4 via an Extra Vegetables® driver + 4Store App., which will be launched at CEDIA 2011. The driver will be available for purchase from the Extra Vegetables web site the same week.
The solution provides the following:
• Real-time display of Pressure, Humidity & Rain, Temperature and Wind Speed & Direction on Control4 touchpanels
• Wind, Temperature and Pressure graphs showing data over previous 24 hours
• Ability to provide weather related events to Control4 enabling event related programming. For example, if the weather changes, shutters can be lowered, water features turned off.
"Extra Vegetables produces drivers and Apps which enhance Control4 systems. These provide a richer experience for the home owner, and profitable add-on sales for the dealer'" says Jane Scotland, Commercial Director at Extra Vegetables. "We are delighted to be working with WeatherHawk to provide Control4 dealers with a means of integrating real-time, accurate localised weather information into Control4. As well as providing home owners useful information where they are, it is invaluable to be able to use weather information to trigger events in vacation homes."
WeatherHawk weather stations have been the standard for home microclimate measurements and weather based home controls since 2004. "The partnership with Extra Vegetables, bringing WeatherHawk professional grade weather stations to Control4 Dealers, enables them to add a new level of home control for their clients" says John Johnston, WeatherHawk Division Manager. WeatherHawk is a Division of Campbell Scientific, a world leader in data loggers and professional climate measurement systems.
