Well, you do need to build an OurWeather kit and add the solar panels and controller. Then you can help test.

What I am doing right now is trying to run down a problem with the temperature sensing device (AM2315) where the temperature will suddenly read about 30 degrees to high. I’m trying to determine whether the problem is in the reporting software or actually in the sensor. You can see the problem by looking at:

Remember, this device is under development and will pop up and down unexpectedly.

John Shovic Did you see Darpan Pudasaini question above asking how he can help - considering that he can’t access a WeatherKit? He seems very interested in working with you, if you can tell him how he can be helpful. And also see Bryan Byrnes post above. I know Bryan personally; he is a super bright engineer who is studying for his masters, I believe in Mechanical Engineering. I have enormous confidence Bryan can help advance your project. My suggestion is for you start a private chat with them and discuss what might work. Free labor from 2 very smart guys. Steven Reubenstone Do you agree with my suggestions here?
