I'd rather have a station that worked and was a little later than promised than one I need to change the batteries on every few months.

Yes, they say it will be REST and WebSocket.

That's great to hear. Hope they will supply you with a system for testing :)

just an update
I have been provided with the API and a test station to connect to via that over the internet and I have WD working with that station :)
so great to be working with these guys
(compared to bloomsky who basicly told me to remove my windows 10 store app I had created because it was using their logo and name :( )

Good you have it working! I'm an early beta tester and will hopefully get mine next month so I can test both WF and WD at the same time :)

Hi,

I would use my Davis VantageVue as my primary weatherstation for publishing data on my website.
Would it be possible to use the data for solar, UV and outside temperatue (at 10 cm ) from the Weatherflow weatherstation for publishing on that same website.

TIA

Latest update:

Increased telemetry range:  One of the big benefits of re-engineering our weather stations (at the expense of delay) was a dramatic improvement in wireless range. In recent testing, our new AIR & hub maintained a good signal at a distance over 1000 meters ! (3280 feet) in clear line-of-sight conditions

Field test update: We’re on track to deliver test devices to field testers starting in late March. Our iOS & Android apps are ready for external testing, as are our integrations with Amazon Alexa, IFTTT, Weather Underground and Weather-Display. Plus, all users will have a personal WeatherFlow webpage for anytime, anywhere data access.

Expected delivery:  If all goes well with the field testing, our goal is to begin shipping weather stations to all IndieGogo backers beginning in late May. We’ll continue to keep you posted with progress in an open and honest manner.

   Hope to get a pre-order going next month for the Air and the Sky units. I'll operate them in parallel with my existing sensors to see if they track well. I'll compare the Sky against my R.M young 05103, The Sky Haptic rain sensor against a oldie but goodie Handar 8" tipping bucket, the Air temp/humidity against a Vaisala temp/humidity transmitter. My Pyranometer quit on me over a year ago, and at a replacement cost of $170.00 or so wasn't worth it. I believe the lightning detection is a AS3935 lightning detector chip or similar used in an Acccurite pocket detector (about $30.00 on Amazon (mine works pretty well and also a detect range of about 25 miles, so probably basically the same thing).

As a field tester I intend to closely compare WeatherFlow against my tried and true Vantage Pro. Will I be able to collect data from both weather stations using 1 instance of WeatherDisplay or will I need to purchase a second license?

My current VP 2 wind speed/direction unit is mounted on the roof.  The transmitter is mounted next to a window so I can change the battery without getting on the roof.  I wish the Weather Flow worked in the same manner.  At my age, I don't like roofs.  :D
