The AgroMET professional weather system has been designed with the grower in mind! Our durable and dependable weather station collects on-site environmental information critical to making informed decisions for best practice planting, spraying and watering schedules. The agricultural specific weather data is sent to our cloud-based web hosting service, RainwiseNet™, via a small and easy to install network interface, the IP-100. No computer link is necessary for uploading data from your weather station through the IP-100 to the web. The IP-100 provides unprecedented transmission and access to real-time weather data in multiple formats:
The AgroMET comes factory assembled and ready to install. The 1 mile line-of-sight transmission to the IP-100 network interface allows for optimum weather station placement. The IP-100 unit simply connects to a router or switch to communicate directly with the RainwiseNet™ cloud server.
The RainWise AgroMET Weather Station is the official weather station authorized by NEWA for recording temperature, leaf wetness, relative humidity, precipitation, solar radiation, wind speed and direction. This essential data is sent via radio from your AgroMET Weather Station to the IP-100 where it is decoded and sent on to RainwiseNet™; no computer is required - you just need a connection to the Internet. RainwiseNet™ exchanges your information with the NEWA server so your data is always available on both websites.
