Vandalism-tolerant meteorological network

  • A high-density meteorological network based on affordable WMO conforming micro weather stations is inherently vandalism-proof.

  • Larger data density allows the network to absorb a large number of end-point weather station vandalism failures while maintaining sufficient data density.

  • Redundancy of wireless data coverage based on IoT technologies affords the network even more reliability.

  • Combined with a micro weather station designed to prevent data access to thieves and with minimal resale or recyclable material value, this will de-incentivize serial vandals and thieves.

What weather station was designed from the onset for vandalism tolerant meteorological networks?

  • MeteoHelix IoT Pro micro weather stations are designed to for vandalism tolerant meteorological applications requiring the utmost precision of measurement per World Meteorological Organization WMO standards.

  • Independent wind sensor apart from the temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure and sun sensors create a modular system able to conform to all use cases and needs.
