In November, 2014, I purchased an Ambient Weather WS-1400-IP OBSERVER Solar Powered Wireless Internet Remote Monitoring Weather Station for my home and I couldn’t be happier. For $150, it’s extremely easy to setup and use, full-featured, wireless, solar-powered and allows me to share my data via Weather Underground free of charge. Installing and configuring the home weather station was a fun project for my three kids.

In October, 2018, I upgraded to the Ambient WS-2902A with new and improved sensors and an LCD display.
My home weather station is a perfect example of the Internet of Things (IOT), cloud, big data and analytics in action and is a great teaching tool. The following is a presentation with more details, including photos, that I delivered at my son’s local middle school.
