SkyAlert is a compact/ self-contained weather monitoring system designed for automated observatories. Link to dimensions and mounting.

SkyAlert monitors wind, humidity, rain, temperature, daylight, dew point and cloud conditions. It uses the data to create a standard one-line weather data file that can be used by most image automation software packages and observatory roof control systems.

The included software can produce custom real-time weather graphs and generate jpeg or png format snapshot images of the graphs which can be uploaded to the web via the built-in ftp client. SkyAlert is offered with either USB or Ethernet connectivity.
