DESCRIPTION

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. For more information on set up, please visit the anemometer page on our WeatherShack education center.

Not the fault of WeatherShack but this product does not interface to any of my Ham Radios as advertised! Apparently Davis knows about the problem but is keeping it quiet. The VUE requires a firmware upgrade that Davis refuses to do. Found this out from another source. Davis will not return my calls.

We have been using other brand, similar weather stations, for several years. We have not been able to place those stations in the desired location because of the topographical limitations. The Davis unit, out of the box, is working with margin to spare. The reception range is easily double previous, other brand, units. Davis seems to understand user needs and has inncorperated them into their design. Range was a driving factor in our selection of this union, however the function and layout of the console has been found to be excellant also.

5 stars So far VERY pleased
02/19/2018
Weather Station replaced a 2 year old AcuRite station. It too was good but placement was right at its maxium wireless range and at times it wouldn't communicate with its base station. Also, I had to periodically take it apart to clean out spider nests. (I have since learned to coat the mounting post with vasoline to prevent) On the critical side, the AcuRite display was MUCH easier to see and interpret. Yes, the Davis Vantage Vue provides much more information by pushing buttons but I liked just walking up to the base station and seeing current temperatures, 24 hr high and lows, wind speed & direction, and rain amounts. The chart in the bottom left of the Davis Vantage Vue's screen lacks axis labeling and it takes some time figuring what it is showing.

4 stars Great little unit
02/12/2018
This weather station has 95% of what I was looking for when replacing a La Cross unit that served me well for many years. Davis has quite the name recognition. I wish I could add additional temperature sensors for my attic and basement like the La Cross allowed is the only thing keeping it from five stars.

Took it out of the box, read the instructions and did the procedure as instructed and the station worked very well.

I'm very satisfied with this station it's very much better than the accurite brand, far tougher, more accurate and better thought out. Sure it's more expensive but you get what you pay for. I wish that I had bought this one before now.
