In order to get the most from your new weather station
you should take the time to set up and position it properly. The majority of current wireless weather stations are robust and well-designed, most of the troubles people come across are caused by not setting up correctly.
The main concern is the location of the remote sensors and receiver. These need to be in contact with each other without difficulty and with as little interruption of the wireless signal as possible, there should be an unobstructed line of sight between the sensors and the base station and a minimum of walls.
First make a decision as to where to locate the sensors. Check the range of your particular weather station and style of sensors, range can be between around 70 feet and 300 feet, and then choose a suitable location within this range. Take into account walls, windows or other obstacles between the sensors and receiver as these will cut down the actual range. The weather station will be made up of different kinds of sensors, each of which has different requirements as to position, so you may have to settle for a compromise and find a site that is possibly not the best for every one of the sensors but where they will all perform sufficiently.
Temperature sensors must be positioned out of direct sunshine or the sun will warm them and they will give an incorrect temperature, but site them away from any structure that gives off heat, e.g. a metal roof. A north facing wall is ideal, preferably in a place sheltered from the rain.
Rain gauges ought to be located where there are no overhanging structures or trees to influence the rain collected, ideally at the highest site you can find. But do keep in mind that will have to clean out the gauge every so often so it needs to be within reach.
Wind speed anemometers and wind direction vanes should be sited in an open spot, again with no obstructions that can affect the reading.
Bearing in mind all these factors the best position will most likely be on a non-metallic roof provided some protection is available for the thermometer, or else at the top of a post.
When you have the sensors positioned then you will want to position the receiver. The best site for receiving the signal will be near to an outside wall, but if you need to connect to a computer or your particular system has an alarm clock as a base station this may be impossible, so you will need to try out different positions where the receiver can still pick up an acceptable signal but these other factors are catered for.
