Ambient Weather WS-1001 WIFI CONSOLE
Lets start with an introduction to WI-FI for home weather stations.
WiFi is a technology that uses radio waves to provide network connectivity. A WiFi connection is established
using a wireless adapter to create hotspots – areas in the vicinity of a wireless router that are connected
to the network and allow users to access internet services. Once configured, WiFi provides wireless
connectivity to your devices by emitting frequencies between 2.4GHz – 5GHz, based on the amount ofBUY NOW
data on the network You may be surprised to hear that many people don’t actually know that WiFi is an abbreviated term. Eventhose who do don’t always know what WiFi stands for. There are a number of theories about what the term means, but the most widely accepted definition for the
term in the tech community is “Wireless Fidelity”
What is Wireless fidelity or Wireless Networking the ws-1001-observer use?
Wireless technology has widely spread lately and you can get connected almost anywhere; at home, at work, in libraries, schools, airports, hotels and even
in some restaurants. Wireless networking is known as WiFi or 802.11 networking as it covers the IEEE 802.11 technologies.
The major advantage of WiFi is that it is compatible with almost every operating system, game device,
and advanced printer.
How WiFi works for the Ambient Weather WS-1001 WIFI CONSOLE?
Like mobile phones, a WiFi network makes use of radio waves to transmit information across a network.
The computer should include a wireless adapter that will translate data sent into a radio signal. This
same signal will be transmitted, via an antenna, to a decoder known as the router. Once decoded, the
data will be sent to the Internet through a wired Ethernet connection.
As the wireless network works as a two-way traffic, the data received from the internet will also pass
through the router to be coded into a radio signal that will be received by the computer’ s wireless adapter.
WiFi Frequencies for the Ambient Weather WS-1001 WIFI CONSOLE
A wireless network will transmit at a frequency level of 2.4 GHz or 5GHz to adapt to the amount of data
that is being sent by the user. The 802.11 networking standards will somewhat vary depending mostly
on the user’ s needs.
The 802.11a will transmit data at a frequency level of 5GHz. The Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing
(OFDM) used enhances reception by dividing the radio signals into smaller signals before reaching the
router. You can transmit a maximum of 54 megabits of data per second.
The 802.11b will transmit data at a frequency level of 2.4GHz, which is a relatively slow speed.
You can transmit a maximum of 11 megabits of data per second.
The 802.11g will transmit data at 2.4GHz but can transmit a maximum of 54 megabits of data per second
as it also uses an OFDM coding. The more advanced 802.11n can transmit a maximum
of 140 megabits of data per second and uses a frequency level of 5GHz.
How WiFi can be accessed. The term hotspot is used to define an area where WiFi
access is available. It can either be through a closed wireless network at home or in public places such as
restaurants or airports. In order to access hotspots, your computer should
include a wireless adapter. If you are using an advanced laptop model, it will probably include a
built-in wireless transmitter already. If it doesn’t, you can purchase a wireless adapter that will plug into
the PCI slot or USB port. Once installed, your system should automatically detect the WiFi hotspots and
request connection. If not, you should use a software to handle this task for you. To start a connection with a wireless router, you
must first ensure that it is plugged into the internet connection point. Turn on your external modem
before plugging the router into your computer via an Ethernet cable. Then, switch on your wireless router
and open your internet browser.
What is Ambient weather we-1001- observer?
The Ambient Weather WS-1001 is a wireless unit that is easy to install, reliable and offers the dual
wireless technology. It comes with with a colorful LCD console and all-in-one sensor array. It transmits
data from both indoor and outdoor. The observer sends and receives data using WiFI connectivity
without connecting to the internet. For any weather enthusiast, this is a perfect choice for it is affordable
and offers accurate and precise weather information.
Features Ambient Weather WS-1001 WIFI CONSOLE
The Ambient Weather WS-1001 wireless weather station comes with an observer or console and
all-in-one integrated sensor array, both outdoor and indoor, which have many features that allow
this weather station to provide a very reliable accurate data report;
Sensor array of Ambient Weather WS-1001 WIFI CONSOLE
Transmits 915MHz using WiFi connectivity, with 300′ line of sight.
The unit is wireless with an all-in-one integrated sensor array that measures outside weather
variables, which includes temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, UV radiation and rainfall, with
outdoor temperature sensor ranging from -40° F to 149°F and outdoor moisture ranges from 10% to 99%.
The indoor sensor array consists of thermometer, hygrometer, and barometer, which measure the indoor
temperature, humidity, and the barometric pressure. Temperature and humidity sensors are housed
in a radiation shield, which helps in providing more accuracy.
The input power of the indoor unit is 5V DC, which also includes a 6.5 ft long cabled charger that
is compatible with 120V power supply. The unit consumes 7.5 watts power.
It also includes a solar panel with 3AA rechargeable alkaline batteries for the outdoor sensor array.
Console of Ambient weather ws-1001-observer.
The console display of this weather station is 6.25 inches by 3.5, full colored TFT LCD, which has a delicate
desktop design and can also be mounted on the wall that even includes AC adaptor. The brightness of the
display is automatic and changes with the time of day. It displays both imperial and metric unit of measures.
The console uses WiFi connectivity for receiving and sending data and NIST time is synchronized
from the famous website Wunderground, with no requirement for extra fees.
It displays the time and date and enables data to be exported to the external SD card that can be viewed
on PC and one can do excel data analysis along with detailed time graphs.
The sunrise, sunset and moon phases can also be viewed on the display of the console.
The weather variables are updated in every 14 sec‐ onds, and the wind speed is upgraded in every 16 sec‐
onds of the real period. Additional weather variables like dew point and rainfall rate can also be viewed.
Alarms can be set for alerts, and it also enables graphical comparison
of the weather for many days and even months.
Advantages of Ambient weather ws-1001-observer.
