Davis Vantage Pro2 Review

Ed Oswald

You might call the Davis Instruments Vantage Pro2 the "granddaddy" of personal weather stations. This model has been around for the better part of two decades: I owned a first-generation Vantage Pro in the mid-2000s. It was the best weather station I ever owned and was worth every penny of the $500 I spent on it at the time.

Davis Vantage Vue Review

Ed Oswald

I'm somewhat biased: I've had my Davis Vantage Vue wireless weather station installed in my backyard since September 2016. But as a result, I can provide you with a long-term review with many more positives than negatives.

WeatherFlow Tempest Review

Ed Oswald

The WeatherFlow Tempest is a station I've been watching for years. The station first debuted on Indiegogo in late 2016 (no, that's not a typo) and looked like nothing else on the market.

WeatherLink Live

Davis WeatherLink Live Review

Ed Oswald

All Davis weather stations suffer from one massive issue: there's no way to get your weather data on the internet. It seems incredibly odd these days, considering many AcuRite and Ambient Weather stations (among others) do. That's where Davis' WeatherLink Live comes in.

Temp Stick Review

Ed Oswald

As far as remote temperature sensors go, there aren't a whole lot of options to choose from. Most of us opt for weather stations instead of a device like the Temp Stick, which is solely for measuring temperature and humidity.

Ambient Weather WS-2902 Review

Ed Oswald

There are many choices regarding home weather stations, especially for budget models. But with these cheap weather stations come compromises, and that's why I was skeptical of Ambient Weather's claims about the WS-2902.

Stratus Rain Gauge Review

Ed Oswald

We usually only cover digital weather stations here on The Weather Station Experts, but the Stratus Precision Rain Gauge is something we think even current weather station owners should pick up.

Ambient Weather WS-5000 Review

Ed Oswald

Ambient Weather's weather stations have become what I expect to see in mid-range models. The company all but defined the budget end of the spectrum with the WS-2902 series, which performed almost as well as the Davis Vantage Vue -- and offered best-in-class smart home connectivity. I couldn't wait to test the Ambient Weather WS-5000 out for myself.

Davis AirLink Review

Ed Oswald

We will start by saying if you don't own a Davis weather station, the Davis AirLink air quality monitor might not be your best option. However, if you do, and have already upgraded to the new WeatherLink Live access point, it's a fantastic deal.
