Davis Vantage Pro Wireless model # 6163 setup
« on: July 01, 2018, 01:19:38 PM »
I decided to replace my Peet Bros system. The system has been very reliable for the past 10 years. However Pete never add any new features. Besides time for wireless anyway.

I also using the Weatherlink IP attachment. Can some one please help me or point me in the correct direction. I love Weather Display and have data ever since I installed my Peet.

I have tried but without any luck with my Davis. I did notice that my new station is not listed in the setup page?  Could it be that WD does not support my ststion?

I have been able to use VWS software and had no problems with setting my station up. I still like WD over VWS.

Thanks

Make sure your data logger is being seen by the PC you are running WD on, I had a connectivity issue years ago and was frustrated, but WD supplies so darn many stations to choose from, some pretty esoteric, that with a mainstream like Davis, the problem is almost certainly NOT WD or Davis, but the wire and gizmos in between.  Make sure of the baud rate, too.
