Why Davis?

As pioneers in the industry, we know weather. We engineer to withstand the harshest conditions — scorching heat, icy rain, 200 mph winds — day after day, year after year.

Made by “US”
Our products are designed, assembled, and rigorously tested by the Davis team at our headquarters in Hayward, California.
Durability
Our weather stations go through a minimum of 10 tests before shipping. They have been engineered to withstand corrosion, 200 mph (90 m/s) winds, the scorching sun, and extreme temperatures.
Precision & Accuracy
Our products provide scientific-grade precision and accuracy. We have spent decades improving and refining every sensor that we make.
Value
My Vantage Pro2 has been running continuously on Ireland’s south coast, open to the full force of the Atlantic, for 15 years. It even withstood our worst storm, Ophelia, of 50 years.
