- Features & Benefits
Vantage Connect allows you to retrieve weather data from any remote site that has cellular coverage. Powered by battery and solar panel, it receives data from your sensor suite up to 1000 feet (300 meters) away, then sends it via cellular connection to the WeatherLink Cloud.
From the WeatherLink Cloud, you can access your data on a smartphone with the WeatherLink Mobile App (iOS and Android) or on a computer at your personal WeatherLink.com page. Use your Pro Tier (included in your annual service plan) to graph and analyze your data further.
You can also receive alerts via email or text when specific conditions are met. You’ll know in real-time when temperatures drop near frost levels in your orchard or when wind direction changes near a fire hazard. Perfect for remote orchards, vineyards, farms, vacation or rental homes, and fire hazard areas.

Thrives in the harshest environment
“We have had quite cold weather after Christmas [here in central Finland]. Temperatures from day to day in front of my window are about -20°C to -30°C. In fact, nearby in middle Finland (62°N), the weather has been colder than in Finnish Lapland (68-70°N)! But all of our Vantage Connects are working just fine! Their performance has been excellent! (By the way, today we got four calls from new semi-professional clients telling us there non-Davis weather stations have stopped working on these cold days and they want Davis Vantage Pro2s!)”
