We took care of a home in Hawai'i that had a Davis Vantage Pro2 station installed and though I am the "weather nut" in the family, my wife became very interested and checked the full-function console screen every day. Each gust of wind would cause her to ask: "How strong was THAT one?" After five weeks there she was the one that suggested we order one for our home. I never dreamed that I could own one like this but Amazon prices it so that it is possible. The installation was simply clamping it to a 2" diameter pipe that sits in a cup on the deck and attaches to the eave of the house. I carry the console to the neighbors and show it off. They may purchase their own console (about $300) and read data from my transmitter package (1,000' range), or I can place duplicat consoles in the greenhouse, garage, or den, with a limit of eight total. Also, each console will re-transmit to another, in a "daisy-chain" fashion. Not only does this device display more current items then you could ever think of, it maintains past data and graphically depicts the previous 24 hours of most items. As an example, for rainfall you will get totals for today, this month, this year, the last 24 years (if it was running then), the current rate of rainfall, and the total rain for this storm. It will also tell you the totals of the last 24 storms. How accurate is it? With the optional software, The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will accept your data, (you can read about it if you go to: [...]), as well as schools and other groups. Optional equipment will allow you to determine if you should water your plants, to measure temperature in multiple places, and to read solar radiation levels. We are VERY happy with our Davis Vantage Pro2 system and strongly recommend it to you.

Now on my 2nd Davis station. They used to be the best and work as advertised. 1st year, the wind speed indicator failed.
Since it was within the one year warranty, they finally replaced it after a lot of calls. Shortly after the warranty expired, the outdoor temp/humidity sensor failed. ( $125 to replace it ) , a little later the
wind direction indicator failed. Have not replaced it yet. ($175 to replace it ). Jury is out on this one.

E-mail support is non-existent. They will never reply to any of your e-mails. Customer support is also weak. The Davis weather stations used to be fine instruments. My 1st one lasted a little over five years before it failed.

I am very disappointed with Davis. Now looking for another brand to switch to. Open to any suggestions as to what brand to try.

I have had a Vantage Pro Wireless for 3 or 4 years. It works very well, and has a lot of data available for a reasonable price. I had a different brand that gave me lots of problems with the hygrometer. So much that they discontinued it. However, the Davis hygrometer has been flawless.

One worry I had was how well the sending unit would work in the winter when there is relatively low and short light to charge the battery. I have had no trouble at all after several years. One thing is that the signal tends to get a bit weaker on batteries, so at the extremes of range, I sometimes loose the signal overnight. At more reasonable ranges, all is very well.

By the way, I first got the integrated sensor suite and plugged the anemometer into it. It worked fine. A year (or so) ago, I sprung for the separate anemometer transmitter and mounted it up above the peak of the roof. All continues to be fine with just a little tweaking of the settings in the main unit.

One thing to pay attention too: Be sure that you are really getting a Vantage Pro II, not the original. Davis has changed radio technologies, and the two technologies are not compatible. They are running out of accessories for the original VP.

I am a bit unhappy that Davis seems to have discontinued a thing called Weather Echo. It was a cool gadget that allowed you to have a remote reading of the main things (temp, humidity, rain, baro) anywhere in the house. The main unit rebroadcasts the info the the W-E. It is very useful, and I wanted to get a second one, but they are no longer available. Sigh.

Item worked fine - I bought the wired version with the data logger in September 2006. I switched to a Mac computer in 2007 rendering much of the software unusable and there is very little out there for Mac for CWOP or Wunderground.

In October 2008, we had a bad rain storm and the rain and wind sensors stopped working. I climbed up on the roof to check out the connections, make sure things were draining etc and it all looked fine. I checked the sensor suite and the other seals and everything was dry with no evidence of water infiltration.

During winter 2008 the system begain working only intermittently and the wind direction sensor locked on north but the speed sensor worked. Then the rain sensor failed. Then it worked again = then it failed for good in March 09. Now, NONE of the exterior sensors are working any longer. I called Davis and got the 'we're sorry you are out of warranty' story - but was told it was common in severe weather areas [like New England where I live] for the system sensors to require replacement after 2-3 years.

So - be careful - this is an expensive system with crappy software, and sensors that they promise years of service but when they fail tell you they only expect 2 years out of them in severe climates. Replacement sensor suite is $260-275 . . .
