Ambient Virtual Weather Station (Internet Edition required, $100) Instructions
Weather Display ($70) Instructions
WeatherLink Module (free, DAVIS Stations only) Note: There's currently a bug in the version number of the WeatherLink module. We are including version 1.1.3 for download, but the module is showing 1.1.1 when loading it (which is an unsupported version). Please rest assured that you are downloading version 1.1.3 and using a supported version, regardless of what the module version screen says.
WUHU / Heavy Weather Uploader (free) Instructions
WeatherSnoop ($20-60) (Mac App Store)
Weather Display ($70) Instructions
The Control by Web X-320M works directly with various compatible stations and sensors. No additional consoles or data loggers required. DAVIS stations require an adapter but do not need a console or WeatherLink package in order to function.
WeatherLink IP Users: Click Here to learn about a service that allows you to publish your Backyard Station data to us using WeatherLink IP without needing to leave your PC on 24/7.
4. View your Backyard Station data on our network.
WeatherBug Desktop and WeatherBug Plus (version 6)
Click on Travel Weather, then Backyard Network to see your Backyard Station data.
Users are not able to set their Backyard Station as the default station on the WeatherBug Home Screen, nor access International Stations in WeatherBug 6. These features will be available in the forthcoming WeatherBug 7. Users can test WeatherBug 7 here.
Users who publish their Backyard Station data to WeatherBug Backyard will receive free renewals of WeatherBug Plus (after their first purchased year subscription) as long as they continue to send us their Backyard Station data. (WeatherBug 7 is not currently available in a Plus version but will be in the near future).
Users can also view their Backyard Station data at the following places:
WeatherBug Blackberry Mobile App (Coming soon to iOS and Android!)
Windows 8 App
Our Windows 8 app allows users to access Backyard Stations easily. Simply search the Windows Store for "WeatherBug", then search the network to find your Backyard Station from the list.
If you are an international Backyard Station owner sending data to our network, please contact us once you have begun sending data to our network so that we can enable your station on the network.
