The Ventus W830 weather station allows you to monitor your weather remotely as it uploads data to Weather Underground, Weather Cloud and also the UK MetOffice WoW service. Recently, Ventus has also added the ability to upload data to the Ecowitt network and your own web server using custom settings. Beware of some very similar looking models that do not include an Internet data upload option.
Everything you need to get started is in the box and the online accounts at Weather Underground, Weather Cloud and MetOffice WoW are all free of charge. Upload to any or all of the services simultaneously. Setup your sensors, console, connect to your home WiFi using the free Apple iOS / Android App and away you go. We've never seen this feature rich technology at this price!!!
The outdoor unit supplements battery power by also using solar power with a internal rechargeable capacitor, meaning that you won't spend time changing batteries every few months. As an extra bonus, this weather station includes a 2 year European warranty as standard.
Optionally, the console can upload data to as many or few of these services simultaneously and our demonstration Ventus W830 data can be seen on the various sites via the links below: (some sites require free registration to view)

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
How is the outdoor sensor pack mounted?
The outdoor sensor pack is mounted on a pole. The diameter of this should be no more than 50mm (2 inches). We recommend a television or satellite antenna mounting for this as they have many option suitable for most people.
What type of batteries does this weather station use?
The sensor pack should use 2 x AA 1.5v batteries which are either Lithium or Alkaline. A small number of manuals listed rechargable batteries which is not correct.
The console uses 3 x AAA 1.5v batteries as a backup incase of a mains power failure.
Hi there can you tell me when these will be available to order
We are expecting these back in late June due to tranport and production delays from China. We have temporarily reduced the price of the identical GARNI 940 model which has a coloured film screen as an alternative.
What does it mean if the cloud display on the console is flashing? It has happened a number of times but I cannot find out what this means in the instructions.
The flashing forecast symbols mean a rapid change in pressure so the weather may be windy and stormy, a rapidly changing situation.
