The Vantage Pro2 is a sophisticated, affordable and personal, solar powered weather station. Not only does it wirelessly transmit weather data from its sensors to a console that sits on your desk, or where ever) every 2.5 seconds, it collects historical data and even does forecasting. It tracks a huge number of weather variables: temperature indoor and outdoor, barometric pressure, humidity, rainfall, wind, wind chill and dew point. The Vantage Pro2 wireless weather station is the first and only station in its price range to use frequency hopping spread spectrum radio technology for achieving transmission distances of up to 1000 feet (300m) of sight line.

Users can also set more than 70 alarms for multiple functions simultaneously. They can graph the last 24 hours, days or months of readings, or highs and lows, and view more than 80 graphs including additional analysis of temperature, rain, rain rate, wind and barometric pressure without a computer. The ticker-tape display shows forecast details and additional information with more than 100 different messages.

With state-of-the-art technology, Vantage Pro2 joins earlier models of Davis weather stations already in use in agriculture, agricultural research, aviation, amusement park safety, education, emergency management, environmental studies, fire fighting, hospitals, hurricane research, Maritime transportation, scientific research, utilities, vineyards, and by hobbyists and weather enthusiasts.
