Personal Weather Station Reinvented: Will the MeteoHelix revolutionize the personal weather station market?

MeteoHelix reinvented the personal weather station.

MeteoHelix reinvented the personal weather station.

Ever since 1974 RainWise Inc. has been at the forefront of innovation in the personal weather station business. Others like Davis, AcuRite, La Crosse, Oregon Scientific and Netatmo followed suit with Davis carving out the largest share of the premium middle market where data collected by the weather station was somewhat usable, even by meteorological services. Despite the fact that each personal weather station came with its own set of innovations and looks, they all lacked the accuracy and long-term data stability to make it in the professional meteorological world.

Personal weather station reinvented

In 2018, we shrunk a professional solar powered weather station (AWOS) costing over $3000 into a compact personal micro-weather station using new IoT wireless technologies and sensors. Its patented helical design taken directly from the field proven MeteoShield® Professional allows this personal weather station to meet WMO measurement quality standards in all weather conditions unlike any of its aforementioned competitors. The MeteoHelix® personal weather station is available worldwide.

MeteoHelix weather station to revolutionize tropical climate monitoring

The MeteoHelix weather station is the first IoT device to demonstrate a LoRaWAN Internet of Things wireless network on the island nation of Samoa in the South Pacific during the Pacific Meteorological Council (PMC-5) meeting. Its secure encrypted meteorological data connection uses The Things Network LoRa server to rout data to the allMETEO.com meteorological cloud platform as part of an early warning weather monitoring system demonstration. The ease of deployment of the MeteoHelix weather stations makes them unique in the marketplace.

Designed to survive cyclone, hurricane and typhoon force winds and direct impacts of flying debris, the MeteoHelix weather station is the only weather station on the market today that can reliably function through the destruction they bring.

We would like to thank the the Government of Samoa, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MNRE) as the hosts of the PMC-5 meeting and Varysian, the organizers of the hydrometeorological equipment exhibition, for making this demonstration possible.


The Fifth meeting of the Pacific Meteorological Council (PMC-5) will showcase the innovative MeteoHelix micro-weather stations

With the fifth meeting of the Pacific Meteorological Council (PMC-5) in Apia, Samoa quickly approaching, BARANI DESIGN Technologies team has set off to showcase the latest meteorological technology to the PMC's NHMS members and senior government officials from SPREP member countries. Additionally, their development partners, Council of the Regional Organisations in the Pacific (CROP), United Nations' agencies, collaborating organisations and institutions with also be present to discuss mitigation strategies of accelerated global warming and the adoption of early warning weather monitoring systems.

BARANI DESIGN Technologies will showcase the MeteoHelix weather stations which are capable of surviving impacts of flying debris as found in cyclones. Being the only professional weather station to be able to survive such conditions while meeting WMO requirements for precision and accuracy of measurement, makes the MeteoHelix IoT Pro a one of a kind proposition for island nations most affected by climate change.

The hydrometeorological equipment exhibition will be held on 5 - 9 August 2019 alongside the PMC-5 and is organized by Varysian.
