This exclusive bundle is for customers looking to monitor wind speed and direction logging data to the weather site making an ideal wind recording device.

The set consists of the WS68 anemometer, with a solar radiation and UV sensor along with the GW1200 gateway connecting to the internet via your home WiFi.

The anemometer sensor measures wind speed, wind direction, UV level and light intensity. 

The GW1200 WiFi gateway is USB powered and also has builtin temperature, humidity and barometric pressure sensors for indoor readings.  These sensors are on a wired probe so that they can be kept away from sources of heat which would skew readings. The GW1200 can be configured through the Ecowitt App or a web browser so a smart device with an App is optional for the setup. The gateway connects to all the Ecowitt transmitter sensors (listed below) and also IoT devices such as the WFC01 water valve and AC1100 power socket.

All of this data, along with the wind sensor data is uploaded to the Ecowitt service via WiFi which can be viewed on the Ecowitt App, or Ecowitt weather website.

You are not just limited to weather data on the Ecowitt weather site or App, you can share your data further afield with free access to The UK MetOffice WoW service, Weather Underground, WeatherCloud and your own web server.

Unlike some other stations, this starter set can be expanded with a variety of additional sensors. Click here to view the latest Ecowitt sensor matrix.

    All of these are available to view in the App, or online via and in the 3rd party services that support this sensor type.
