SkyAlert is a compact/ self-contained weather monitoring system designed for automated observatories.
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.
