MeteoBrige Pro v2 server
Meteobridge PRO is a Personal Weather Server. Meteobridge PRO comes in a tiny package (about the size of a cigarette box), with 1-2 watts of power, 16GB of internal data storage (on a SD card), LAN and WiFi capabilities, a graphical LED display, 2 external USB ports and built-in RF capability to receive data directly from Davis Instruments sensors.
Standalone - Meteobridge PRO is managed through your browser, so you don't have to install anything on your PC and you can use it with any desktop, laptop or tablet computer. With the browser, you initially configure Meteobridge PRO. Once configured to your needs, Meteobridge PRO works completely independently of your PC, so you don't have to have a PC on all the time to monitor the weather data. It is a stand-alone, low-power solution that takes care of your weather station data.

Weather Networks - By being connected to one of the above weather stations, Meteobridge PRO can upload your weather station data to the following Internet weather networks, where you are part of a weather community and get your data visualised in different ways:
- WWeather Underground
- Weather Underground Camera
- CWOP / APRS
- WeatherBug Backyard
- UK MetOffice WOW / WOW NL
- Open Weather Map
- Weather Cloud
- Anything Weather
- Meteoplug Cloud Graphing
- Meteobridge Weather CAM
- Ambientweather Network
Uploading / Sending - In addition to feeding the weather networks, Meteobridge PRO allows you to send your weather data at short intervals to your own server on the Internet. This can be done via FTP, SFTP, HTTP, HTTPS or even mySQL requests. You can also send weather data by e-mail or publish it on Twitter. The choice of which data to send or upload and how often is entirely up to you. Web page templates - Meteobridge PRO can feed the most popular web page templates ("Leuven", "Saratoga", "Home Weather Station", "Meteotemplate" and "WD-Live") and allows you to easily create your own weather web page on the Internet.
Conditions - Meteobridge PRO can even act on user-defined sensor data conditions and initiate any of the above actions (such as email) when the sensor data matches the conditions you have defined. Having multiple ways to download and send data, controlled by user-defined conditions, gives you an extremely flexible tool depending on the sensor data.
Remote Access - Meteobridge PRO offers the ability to be reached from the Internet by simply setting a mark on the web interface. This will provide you with an Internet URL where you can access your Meteobridge PRO. No changes to your firewall or router are required. It just works, unless you are in a corporate LAN where a firewall is in place. This is extremely useful when you are travelling or the Meteobridge is in a remote location and you want to check or change settings. Your Meteobridge remains protected by the password you set.
Display - Meteobridge PRO has a 128x64 pixel black/white screen on the front, which is used during start-up to show the progress of the start-up and the IP address given to it by the router. This screen is user programmable and can also be used to display the station's sensor data. You can define separate pages to be displayed on the screen. These pages can contain text in different fonts and sizes and will typically display sensor data. You can organise these pages into a flow so that the information to be displayed changes at a frequency you define. The example below shows a typical cascade of pages that comes as predefined.
Storage - Meteobridge PRO comes with an internal database that can store up to 1GB of weather station data, allowing over a decade of data to be stored. Data can be viewed, edited and deleted via the Meteobridge PRO web interface, which also provides a graphical overview of a specific sensor's data over a period of one year, one month or one day. Meteobridge PRO can use the stored data directly when uploading information, allowing you to feed your web server with any type of sensor data for any period. Therefore, you are not limited to predefined patterns, but can design your weather presence on the Internet as you wish.
Sharing - Meteobridge PRO allows you to export stored weather data in a CSV notation. The data to be exported and the time period are user defined. This allows you to export data for various monitoring processes. Meteobridge PRO makes data exports accessible by providing a samba share (Windows network folder) that every PC on your local network can easily mount as a network folder.
Monitoring - Meteobridge PRO has internal power monitoring that measures the media voltage and power usage of Meteobridge PRO itself and all connected USB devices. This is extremely useful when Meteobridge PRO is operating in a battery powered environment as it can monitor and even act on power conditions. It also allows you to check if your installation is running "as green" as expected.
SMS / Twitter - Meteobridge PRO can send SMS via the service provider "messagebird". This can be done at regular intervals or triggered by user defined events. The content of the SMS may include weather data. Meteobridge PRO is not limited to SMS but can also send weather information via twitter.
Graphics - Meteobridge PRO can display graphics of recorded weather data. The library used is "amcharts". These charts are fully interactive. You can touch the timeline to expand or contract the time period to be displayed. As the cursor moves over the graph, text data appears. The data can be shown or hidden by clicking on the legend items. Different types of information can be displayed in vertically stacked panels that share the same timeline. You can inspect the graphs from the Meteobridge PRO web interface or you can upload the graphs via FTP to your web server. Integration into your homepage is very easy as the charts are self-contained, you do not need to install additional libraries on your web server. Furthermore, you can also access the graphics on your Meteobridge PRO from the internet, if remote access is enabled on your Meteobridge PRO. The graphics are not password protected, so you do not have to compromise your Meteobridge PRO administration password to allow access to the graphics. Although Meteobridge PRO comes with a set of standard chart definitions (both ISO and imperial units), you can also define new chart definitions based on the capabilities of the "amchart" chart engine. In this way, Meteobridge PRO offers more options for visualizing weather data than most PC programs, while having an unmatched form factor and requiring a very low amount of power.

Easy to install and configure. (Translated review)
Certainly a powerful product, but without explanations, it looks more like a gadget than a pro device... It should be indicated that it is reserved for tinkering specialists, especially as there are bugs in its operation... very expensive for a very disappointing product. But I'm still working on it, I don't want to give up... (Translated review)
