I have been running a 2nd computer conected to my weather station for around 2 months now and its been working well. This allows me to view my station informaton 24 7 from where ever I am. Even when I was on holiday for a week it was like being at home because I am running the new Davis cloud based platform . It also allows people with the Davis WeatherLink 2.0 app to view my stations live data 24 7.
I have just ordered a Wifi data logger so my weather station will upload my data automatically to the web without the use of the 2nd pc. I should have the new logger installed over the next couple of days.
