OVERVIEW

The highly affordable, Davis Vantage Vue Wireless Weather Station combines Davis Instruments' legendary accuracy and rugged durability into a compact station that's easy to install, set up and use. Made in the USA, the Vantage Vue includes a sleek but tough outdoor sensor array and a distinctive LCD console. Its unique Weather Center function provides additional information on each weather variable. In addition, Davis has made the Vantage Vue radio-compatible with their flagship Vantage Pro2 weather stations so you can mix-and-match most components!

Like the Davis Vantage Pro2, two key factors set Vantage Vue apart from most other complete weather stations, the refresh rate and the transmission distance:

  • Refresh Rate - A packet of data is sent from the outdoor transmitter to the receiver every 2 1/2 seconds! This means when you look out the window and see the wind blowing, the weather station will reflect it almost immediately.
  • Transmission Distance - Line of sight range is 1000'. Typical range under most conditions is 300' to 500'. This is a much greater distance than most other professional units

The Davis Vantage Vue also uses the same frequency-hopping spread spectrum radio technology as the Vantage Pro2 to wirelessly send data up to 1,000 feet and provides weather updates from the outdoor integrated sensor suite to the indoor console every 2.5 seconds.

With the indoor console's Weather Center feature, Vantage Vue provides extensive additional information for each weather variable. These include daily highs and lows, temperature changes by the hour, air pressure changes and astronomical data such as moon phase and meteor showers. Additional consoles can be purchased for placement in other areas of your home such as a den, bedroom or backyard.

To make viewing weather data easier at night, Davis designed the Vantage Vue console with an easy-to-read backlit LCD display with a glow-in-the-dark keypad. A data collecting device in its own right, the console's built in sensors provide indoor temperature and humidity as well as barometric pressure measurements.

The Vantage Vue's outdoor Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) is energized by a solar panel during the day and stored energy for power at night, making it an ideal product or gift for the "green" consumer. To ensure product longevity, the ISS sensor electronics are sealed for added protection from the elements. The assembly is even cyclic corrosion tested to simulate harsh environments such as heat, humidity and seaside conditions.

Being radio-compatible with the Vantage Pro2, VP2 owners may purchase a Vantage Vue sensor suite or console and they will work together seamlessly.

Vantage Vue stations will also work with Davis Instruments' WeatherLink software. WeatherLink allows users to transfer their weather data to a PC or Mac for additional analysis and graphing.

Considering the Vantage Pro2 as well? Visit our Davis Weather Stations Comparison Chart for an overview of capabilities between all models, including the Vantage Vue.

Note: We do carry magnetic compasses to help you orient your anemometer to true north. Those can be located under the "Accessories" tab shown above. For more information on set up, please visit the anemometer page on our WeatherShack education center.

Instructions were clear cut and the unit easy to program. Evaluation will take a few weeks of use to determine its complete value to me as a weather station.

I chose this wx station over others because it was the only one that recorded true wind data, including gusts. Receiving a data packet every 1.5 seconds instead of 15-18 seconds makes a huge difference. This is a great product, setup was a breeze.

I had purchased a cheaper system at a local big box store only to find that it possessed poor reliability and very limited range. This system is just the opposite. It has a phenomenal transmit range, is accurate and was simple to install. I love this unit!

Very nicely put together this is basically professional equipment for the homeowner. The only thing you need to know is that to be truly useful you really need the IP connection to upload the data to the internet. Then you can use the data to see the trends and history of the weather at your station. Without this you are missing the best part of the arrangement.
