I bought a similar 7/1 weather station at Lowe’s. Mounted the out door unit on a 10’ piece of conduit that is strapped to a yard light about 200’ away from house. It’s at my summer house on Lake Ontario. My home is not water front, I experimented before I made a permanent mount. The wind varies by 6 to 10 mph from the water front to my home.
It’s very interesting to see the weather as it is happening.
Good stuff. I think it is a good investment especially for monitoring property away. I work 60 miles from home so it is nice to know what I am driving to. Of course I can always call my wife. But she will say... just look at your phone. Now I can tell her the barometer is dropping better get the rain gear out. :)
