Continuing the discussion from For those who own a personal weather station and have it working with HE, what do you own?:
The device looks nice. Their kickstarter and indiegogo campaings both look pretty slick. But they also appear to be a real weather data company that's been around for like 20 years?
I actually have more of a general question about personal weather stations that I probably could've asked in the previous thread .
I live in NYC, there aren't any tall buildings near me, but to put a weather station outdoors, it would still be relatively close to the side of my building, which is four stories tall.
Anyone know if I could still hope to get reliable measurements for things like wind and rain from a device like this if it's about 8-10 feet above street level, relatively unobstructed on all sides except the one that faces the wall of the building (say 5 feet away)?
Placing some equipment on the roof might be possible, though more complicated (building rules, liability insurance and whatnot ).
