My ISS is 10+ years old.  TX sun and hail has taken its toll.  I want to replace the ISS.  The 6825 Groweather looks like a great choice.  The solar sensor for ET calculation without having the UV sensor which I don't see much value.

Does anyone have experience using a GroWeather ISS with Wview.   Wview has been my preferred software since day 1.  It seems to have been abandoned but still functions.

Hi,

I've been considering the Ambient Weather WS-2902A. It's significantly
less expensive, but works with Alexa and has a modern phone interface.

Anyone have any ideas of the differences between these higher-end Davis
devices and the $169 Ambient Weather devices? Is it the accuracy?

It may last longer, but I don't need that in a $169 device.

Interfacing with Linux is important to me. Any idea if the WS-2902A
works with wview?

Is wview being maintained any longer? Are there alternatives for Linux?

Thanks,
Alex

I think a lot of folks are moving to weewx. It uses the same db schema as wview, so data can be moved. And it is actively being developed. I plan to move in a few months.
