I initially was looking at the PurpleAir sensor, mostly for the very good online presence and the quantity of deployed sensors.
Looking into it a bit further I found out the PurpleAir was over priced (250 USD) for what is basically a redundant Plantower PM2.5 sensor and a very bad temperature/humidity sensor.
For similar money, it seems I can get a true weather station, and add the PM2.5 sensor to the array. I have a wood smoke brush fire issue here and I really want to quantify the degradation in air quality.
So far I have seen the Ecowitt, and the Ambient Weather products, but I want to make sure I consider every option.
Here are the characteristics I am looking for in a weather station:
-Easy Hubitat integration
-Available PM2.5 sensor
-Solar power (or 2 year plus battery life), desirable, but i could bend and power the station with a plug in adapter if everything else was stellar about the product
-Available soil humidity sensor (for WAF)
-Ecobee compatible (ideally i would like my Ecobee thermostat to pull data I upload to the web from my weather station). I am near a large lake and I know the weather data I am pulling from 3 miles away can be way off depending on prevailing winds.
