WatchDog[R] 2000 Series Mini Station.

Recognizing the need for affordable weather recording in remote microclimates, Spectrum Technologies developed the WatchDog[R] 2000 Series Mini Stations as user-friendly devices to capture, process, and store weather history throughout the growing season. These powerful recorders present historical weather data, degree-day calculations, and plant disease alerts on location, without requiring a computer. Knowledge of site-specific weather conditions is important for making objective decisions relative to irrigation and pest management. The station's LCD displays current conditions, degree-days, and daily high/low values for the previous 30 days. The Mini Stations add an integrated data logger with non-volatile memory, external sensor options, and affordable wireless communications to a PC where Spec8 Pro software offers numerous graph and report options. There are four WatchDog[R] Mini Station models, each with up to four sensors for temperature, humidity, quantum light, rainfall, soil moisture, soil temperature, leaf wetness, or solar radiation
